Books That Make Me Go....Ahhhh
This week my excerpt is from Home Front by Kristin Hannah:
Not Jolene, who believed that happiness was a choice to be made and a smile was a frown turned upside down. Her turbulent, ugly childhood had left her impatient with people who couldn't choose to be happy. Lately, it got on his nerves, all her buoyant it-will-get-better platitudes. Because she'd lost her parents, she thought she understood grief, but she had no idea how it felt to be drowning.
So far I'm enjoying this book but not loving it. The first couple of chapters were just a bit too "sweet" for me.
