by Amanda Linsmeier (Goodreads Author)
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.
