 White Picket Fences a novel

By Susan Meissner

This is a quick easy read.  Not a lot of suspense or mystery, but enjoyable, light and mindless! 😉  I don’t know if mindless is a good adjective, but for me at the end of the day I enjoy a little light mindless reading just before going to bed.  My brain is usually ready to turn off so I don’t want to pick up something too heavy or takes a lot of brain power!  I would think this is true of any mother!

Tally’s father is out of the country and she goes to stay with her aunt and uncle and two cousins whom she hardly knows.  She had met them once before, but doesn’t really remember much since it was a few years ago. Life in a two parent family takes some getting used to since Tally is used to living with just her father.  Her mother died when she was young and she didn’t have any brothers or sisters.

So often from the outside, the perfect looking neighborhood home with flower gardens, nice car in the drive way and a cute white picket fence appears to hold the perfect little family living the perfect live.  This book is about a normal family that has past history that was left in the past and never addressed.  As time goes on and as some of the kids get older that history begins to come to the surface and effects relationships between family members.

It’s a story of life.  What any family can go through or has gone through.  It can either end up in reconciliation and recovery or rifts that are never overcome.

I did enjoy this book and maybe you will too!  If you’ve read it let me know your thoughts!
