Far From You

Lisa Schroeder

Simon and Schuster

$7.99 U.S.

FTC: I purchased this book, at Lisa's signing!

Synopsis by Barnes and Noble:

Lost and alone...Down the rabbit hole.

Alice thought she knew
what solitude was:
Her mother—gone.
Her father—remarried with a newborn

in the icy embrace
of a deadly snowstorm,
Alice faces the true meaning of loneliness.

But hope
may not be as far away
as she thinks....

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved this book. It is my favorite by Lisa. I loved the flow of the book. It flowed gracefully. Ali was a beautiful character. She drew you in and you felt like you were her, feeling what she felt, seeing what she saw. Unlike her other two books Lisa show a different paranormal character in this book: Angels. This book captivated me the entire way, and I couldn't put it down. I read it all in one sitting and was left with a sense of peace and joy when I finished it. it was remarkable. My favorite thing was the relationship dynamics and how they grew and shifted throughout the book. We were able to see friends stop speaking, enemies become friends, family that had drifted grow closer and so much more. It made me feel warm inside.


Anyone in need of a little pick me up, or wanting to read something heart warming.
