The Place of Belonging - Book Review!

Review done by Rambles of a SAHM

Product Description From Amazon:

A warm and endearing, yet heart-wrenching memoir. The Place of Belonging, is about a child of a single mother in Big Sky Montana that is beautifully and simply told. It is an unforgettable step back in time, a fresh understanding of loss and belonging. Reading like prose, this elegantly written and emotionally satisfying story is told from the eyes of a child of the 1940’s.

"One of the best books we have ever published and that I have ever read."
Nancie Carmichael, DRB Publisher and bestselling author.

Anyone who has ever tried to fit in and belong will understand both mother and child in this narrative. . . and will see that separation and loss can sometimes
be the very encounters that will ultimately bring wholeness

My Take:
I loved this book. I picked it up and read it within three hours! I loved how the author pulls you into the story and you can't put it down. I wish there was a book two. The author does a great job of showing you life in the 1940's through the eyes of a young girl in Montana. One thing I loved was that the author shows you how the young girl feels but you can still see everyone’s side of the story. I loved how transparent Jayne is with her emotions. I wish everyone could have a grandma Olson in their life. Another thing I loved was at the end of the book is a photo of the family. I loved seeing what everyone looked like. This book was funny, sad, and I loved how it ended. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a great story. It would also be a good choice for a book club. I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

I recieved this book from Bring It On! Communications for my honest review. This review is my own.
