Happy Thursday! I hope you are all doing well.
For today’s review I teamed up with Booktasters to read this very special book.
A mother and daughter (protagonists are left unnamed) travel to Peru for the mother’s birthday celebration. The story follows their physical and emotional journey through Peru and the mother explains to the daughter many life lessons, one by one.
Ugh this book is so heartwarming. It was so pure and genuine.
The writing was very detailed. I like to compare Turner’s writing as pointillism. She described every single detail in each scene with care.
I love the strong mother-daughter relationship and the lessons the mother gives to the daughter.
This story brings forth the importance of having strong relationships in your life and having a guardian whether they be a relative or a friend, you must have people to help you through life trouble’s and just life in general.
If this story doesn’t make you want to call your mom or any other relative, I have no idea what will.
Overall I enjoyed this story. The only thing that I didn’t enjoy was the format of the dialogue. Instead of a normal piece of dialogue such as “This book was so heartwarming,” said Hannah, it would say Hannah says to readers, “This book was so heartwarming. That’s just my personal preference.
Thank you all for reading. I hope you all are doing well and I will be back with another book review next Monday.
