This is exactly the kind of book that reminds me of why I love to read. This was such a satisfying novel, I loved every minute of it. From the heart-wrenching opening to the very end, it captured my attention and kept me from putting it down. This author is a master at a well-crafted story. Every little detail had its place and it was all woven together into the perfect book. I adored the classic movie references and the obscure aging actress who lived next door. The main character's fascination with a certain fabric was sweet and what she did with it came alive in my mind.
Kathryn Cushman keeps getting better and better. This is my favorite of her books so far. She writes a clean read and always has a Christ-centered theme. Very highly recommended.
