V is for Velvet
And I loved them all. I literally could not put it down and read it in one sitting.
However, this book is not for the faint of heart. If you looking for happy poems that make you want to skip around your backyard pond and sing naked. This book may not provide what you need. Well, the naked part maybe.
The book is written in four parts and throughout I hoped the end would be the light at the end of the tunnel, the happy ending. But I was wrong. And perhaps that's why it was so powerful. The book represents life--real life. Where there aren't always happily ever afters. There's just dealing and truth and understanding and forgiveness.
Brutally honest. There was a few occasions I asked, 'Would Jessica's family read this?' or 'Should I read this?' or 'Should I know this?' But, I realized the answer is yes. For the same reason I write fiction based on real life. For the same reason parts of me go into my books. For the same reason writers tell stories.
This book is available in July. Buy it. But read it on a sunny day...around your backyard pond...naked.
