I loved this book! The writing is beautiful. The character development is phenomenal. I was moved by all of the characters in the story, however quirky Arlo stands out as a favorite. Arlo works in a local bookstore and his unique shelving methods had me laughing out loud. I also shed a few tears, so this book has it all. It's a winner with so much heart! I highly recommend it.
This novel grabbed me from the first page and held me until the end. It's an inspirational, coming of age story set in modern-day Nigeria. Adunni's harrowing quest to find her "louding voice" and break free from Nigeria's brutal patriarchial society is riveting. It is a beautifully written book that I will not soon forget. I loved it!
This is the first novel in Louise Penny's Three Pines mystery series featuring the lovable and wise Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. I recommend the whole series! It's delightful! I would also recommend reading the series in order.
