~I’ll Be Your Blue Sky by Marisa de los Santos~
Wow. This is my first book by Marisa de los Santos and I loved it.
The writing, oh my gosh, the writing⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Ok, so there were a few little things here and there but who cares? Her writing was so magnificent. I can’t say when I have enjoyed a book so much since Peace Like A River, which is my all time fav. What a wonderful ride!
The story shifts between two timelines, present day and 1950’s. On the day of her wedding, Clare meets Edith. After talking with Edith, she decides to call off the wedding. Then Edith dies leaving Clare, a virtual stranger, a house in Delaware. Situated on the coast Blue Sky House is chock full of mysteries. Clare untangles the past, finding connections along the way.
I love the balance between humor and seriousness.
This book ended exactly as a good book should! It left me with a feeling of hope. I ADORED the Dev character. I think I fell a little in love with him.
Did I say I love this novel? Not only is it on my to be reread pile, I did reread part of it immediately, which I have only ever done once before. Beautifully done.
I listened to the audio book with narration by Angela Dawe and Erin Bennett. Fabulous job.
