Friday Recommends

Friday again, and it's time for my choice of book for Friday recommends...

This is an exciting book blog hop that book bloggers can take part in once a week to share with their followers, the books that they most recommend reading!

The rules for Friday Recommends are:

Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.
Pick a book that you've read, and have enjoyed enough to recommend to other readers. It can be a book you've read recently, or a book you read years ago - it's up to you - but make sure you tell us why you love the book (like a mini review). You make the post as long or as short as you like.
Visit the other blogs and enjoy!

My Friday Recommended read this week is

Shelter Me


Juliette Fay

Shelter Me

My review 

Janie LaMarche needs to find enormous strength of spirit in order to bring up her two young children alone. With an abundance of warm and tender characters, Juliette Fay has explored the emotional and psychological needs of this young mother, and has created a memorable and tender story. Throughout the story, an abundance of warm and witty characters form the glue that keeps this family together, but there is also a dark side, with secrets that need to be explored and hidden demons that are better chased away. The story flows easily, and the author has a lovely way with words which convey a wise and witty, and ultimately tender story about love, loss and the power of redemption.Focusing on the minutiae of life with all its hopes and fears, Shelter Me is one of those stories that will remain with you long after the last page has been turned.

My thanks to my friends at the Outlander Book Club for suggesting this book.
