My review for book 1 in this series

My review for Letters From Home

I have only read one book by this author and although it wasn't mind-blowing, I remember the writing was solid. As was this story, and I think I liked it better. This was a somber story in a way. An adopted child now an adult wanting to know why the mother gave them up. Not really finding out, but learning so much more made this story a good one. It was pretty deep. Maybe it was how I was able to connect in a way to it. Not through adoption but the abandonment issues. That I get. I see it from both sides, having those same issues with my own daughter. This little story gave me hope that at least one of us can heal.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
