I’m catching up on some good book recommendations I’ve had since summer for you readers out there. Remember I am terrible at giving descriptions of books and you’ll just have to trust me when I say that you won’t be able to put these down.
I loved this one-it might be the top book of the year for me. An emotional, but beautiful story of a former foster child turned young woman trying to make it in the world.
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.
I really like this author-I’ve enjoyed every one of her books. This is about a young girl growing up in a small town with an not-so-stable mother.
Different, but couldn’t put it down. Another story about a girl growing up during a life-changing event that throws her family into a tail-spin.
Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.
Set in the South in 1946-a fast-paced story that makes you glad you weren’t a farmer’s wife living with your nasty father-in-law in the middle of nowhere.
This book reminded me a little of The Glass Castle. There were times I hated the mother of the boy in this story and just wanted to wrap my arms around the little boy in this story.
Another one my Laura Moriarity. I felt so much for the main character of this novel-a girl in college whose life is changing drastically while everything goes wrong at once. Loved the ending.
A very detailed description of the trauma of a divorce and the difficulties of remarriage and a blended family when children are involved . It’s really a compelling but heart breaking story.
