Available at Deep River Books for $13.99Overview of the book from Deep River Books: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.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 Review:
I loved this book! It was a very enjoyable book to just sit down and relax with. Reading about Janie and the feelings she had while growing up was fun! She made you want to laugh and cry. It was written very much like a diary. The story was told from the honest mind of a child. She feels and says things that adults don’t always say out loud, but want to. I found that very refreshing.
Parts of this book really pulls at your heart strings. I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened to Janie and her family. The way the book was written makes you feel like you are part of the family.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone ages 13-113! I think any age will find something to relate to in this book by Jayne Pearson Faulkner!I received this book free from Bring It On Communications in exchange for a written review on my blog.
