We all wonder how we'd react to tragedy. This is a story about how a man and his daughter make it through life's tests. Compassionate, moving, beautifully written. A heart warmer.
As with her other book AMY AND ME the auhor tells a detailed story with a deep understanding of sorrrow, hope and joy.
This wonderful book explores the depths of grief and overwhelming love. How the loss of one loved one can almost destroy, only to have the love of child and the unexpected love and understanding of a community make one whole again. I loved this book, but cannot post, because I immediately put it in the hands of my sister, to be passed on to our other sister.
I look forward to reading more by E. Strout.
Another wonderful novel by Elizabeth Strout. Gently details the unraveling of a grieving widower and his eventual healing. Very well-written.
I don't feel that this one was nearly as engrossing as her first novel. Somewhat slow moving.
