Enjoyed reading this one. It was a quick, yet powerful read. I started it last night and just finished. It wasn’t at all what I expected when I first started. I kept sensing a foreshadowing of what was to be, but each time I was wrong.
The book opens with January getting an unexpected visit from her estranged dad, Albert. Bit by bit we learn the sadness behind their estranged relationship which followed the death of her mother. Bit by bit the author unravels a story of finding one’s family and possibly getting what is wanted. Things in life are not what January ever expected them to be and she has the opportunity to really rethink her long held anger.
The book is not a thriller, or a sappy love story. It’s a story of a women who has to come to terms with her painful past. The manner in which she does that was interesting and kept me engaged. The author has created strong characters and the plot has a few twists thrown in just to keep it different. Albert, Sydney and Ella will stay with you long after you stop reading. It’s a quick read, but it’s not light. It also has an important message to readers and I for one have a new appreciation for the color teal.
Book will be out July 19th. Available for preorder now. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me a copy to read and review.
