I was able to finish this book at an appointment this morning and it was an enjoyable book from beginning to end. In this book we discover the tragic backgrounds of the characters but we also get to watch them come to terms with their lives and heal. The descriptive writing allows for the characters and story to intertwine with the setting and it is just marvelous.

I'm currently about half way through this book and I'm really enjoying it. Deborah Reed clearly has a gift when it comes to descriptive writing - I can almost smell the setting while reading.

Have I said lately how much I love my library?! 💖 They still had “blind date” with books available.
What a fun surprise ☺️

I haven‘t even heard of this book, just released last month, but it has high praise from Cheryl Strayed!

The sign on the table says “Books are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you‘re going to get!”
