Review: You Wanna Go to Willard by Linda M. Holbrook

I want to thank Bostick and Linda Holbrook for allowing me to review this one. I really liked it.

My Review

This is a great heartfelt story. I loved Laura, she was so down to earth, and she seemed like a real person to me.

I almost immediately became attached to her. I felt the pain, joy, sorrow, doubt, everything she was going through. There were a few times I was brought to tears. I was angry with people that hurt her. I wanted her to succeed in everything so that she could build her self-confidence.

This was a great story about life in general. Things happen and we have to deal with them and move on. This book reiterated one thing that I always say "Everything happens for a reason, even if we can't see it at the time". I think if I had to summarize the theme of this book, that would be it.

This one took me a little longer than I expected to finish. I don't know why it was a slow read but it was. It was engaging though, and that kept me turning the pages. Overall I would have to say it was touching.
