I fell in love with Julia! She is a precocious 11-year-old girl, but she also has a heart of gold. This book will renew your faith in humanity … though you’ll stumble a little bit along the way. You will want to read to the very end, especially the epilogue.
I could envision this delightful story as a movie. The author captures your attention from page 1, making you care about every character. You will be cheering, crying, chuckling, and cringing. I dare the reader to close the book and walk away unchanged or unchallenged. How will you respond to the book as you reflect on the love, tenderness, graciousness, gifts, disabilities, inquisitiveness, companionship, and silence that flows through the pages.
Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for my honest review. While the first book I’ve read by Phyllis Clark Nichols, it will definitely not be my last. I am now a huge fan!
