I just have to share with all of you the novel Leaving Serenity by Alle Wells. I just finished reading it and I have to say it is one of the BEST novels I have read in a long time. Ms Wells has such a beautiful style of writing and a knack for telling a story that makes you want to forget everything else and just read. This is one of the very few books that I literally could not put down. If you love a story with a strong woman lead who struggles to make a better life for herself, you will love this novel. Here is a description of the book and the review I posted on Amazon.
My 5 Star Review:
Nikky Harris returns home to a family she felt never loved her and the memories of her youth that she ran away from twenty-five years ago. Now a successful business woman, Nikky still struggles with her past as she relives the moments that changed her life in the 1960s and '70s that made her decide to run away from her hometown Serenity.
The characters and their experiences and emotions jump out at you from the pages of Leaving Serenity by Alle Wells. The smoothness of Ms. Wells writing immediately draws you into this heartwarming, and sometimes heart wrenching, story as you follow the lead character's life through heartache and triumph. Ms. Wells beautiful writing style, storytelling ability and unforgettable characters reminds me of southern writer Anne Rivers Siddons. I loved this book and have definitely become of fan of Alle Wells.
Leaving Serenity is available in eBook format on Amazon.
