Ditch Flowers by Amanda Linsmeier
Ditch Flowers
by Amanda Linsmeier (Goodreads Author)

Read from August 21 to 23, 2015

 

The writing in Ditch Flowers is sybaritic and mesmerizing. It does not surprise me to learn the author also pens poetry. I was captivated from the first page.

I have never experienced miscarriage or the loss of a child, but somehow, I was able to identify with Julia. There have been times I haven’t received what I wanted desperately. Also, perhaps like most people, I have experienced betrayal of trust. She is a strong woman and while she makes choices that possibly I wouldn’t make, I could certainly feel why she makes them.

I certainly had leaky eyes several times during this read, but somehow I didn’t feel sad. Julia was loved and there was never an uncertainty of that, at least not to me. The question was would it be enough. I felt she would be okay either way she choice.

I highly recommend reading this book. There will be no regrets.
