October book selection from SheReads
We choose a book a month that we consider unputdownable. Here's the scoop on our October selection:
We first fell for JoJo Moyes with her book ME BEFORE YOU, a love story that had us in tears... and anxious for her next offering. So you can bet we were first in line for her new title, THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND, a dual storyline featuring a contemporary and historical heroine.
The fact that we've picked THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND as our October selection is a good indicator of how we feel about it. We're suckers for a good dual storyline, and this one is particularly riveting. We found ourselves momentarily sad each time the narrative changed from contemporary to historical-- but only momentarily, because we were quickly drawn into each story, equally.
These two stories of hardship and heartbreak had us rooting for these women all the way through. Will Liv prove her ownership of her beloved painting? Will Sophie ever see her beloved Edouard again? You have to read to find out!
We hope you'll join us over at She Reads this month and hear from Jojo Moyes as she shares more about the book. You can also share the reading experience with other devoted lovers of story. At She Reads we believe story is the shortest distance to the human heart. This story is sure to reach yours.
