Book 6 in 2020.
“Map of the Heart” by, Susan Wiggs.
I cannot remember why I got this book from the library. I have not ever read anything by Susan Wiggs. I am super excited though because I really liked her! I love finding new authors to try. Even though, once again my reoccurring theme, it was a story built around a tragedy, I wanted all the feels and got them.
It takes place in present day with a widowed mother and her teenage daughter. Their aging father/grandfather wants to go back to his ancestral home in southern France. To my pleasant surprise, there is also a little side story from WWII involving the father’s mother.
All the feels involves:
Death. War. Peace. Life.
Young love. Lost love. New love.
Family. Friends. Perseverance.
Such a well rounded, well written story. I could not get enough. Overall afterthought, good stuff.
