Rescue Missy from Beth Morrey
Love lives here
Saving Missy by Beth Morrey is a simply beautiful contemporary novel about love and friendship. It made me smile and cry.
The leading lady is seventy-eight. She had her family, but now she is alone. "Now there was just the echo of it (love) in that ramshackle old house." There is an "overwhelming silence". The reader can empathize with Missy, who used to be a busy house, but now the walls are blank. Your life is shrinking. Their rescuers come in the unlikely forms of two women, a boy and a dog.
It is nice to see life in the twilight years, bud, bloom and bloom again.
We all need friends. We all need to know that our life matters.
Missy, first time owner of a dog, makes the reader smile! Owning a dog broadens your horizons as dog walkers are a friendly bunch. There's a lovely bond with Missy and her dog that grows stronger over time. Tissues are definitely needed.
With love comes pain and pain. A guilty secret threatens to sink a life. We can feel the pain radiating through the pages over the years. The burden becomes heavier, not lighter, over time.
The loss of a great love is palpable. The love and care of a community is beautiful to witness.
Saving Missy was a beautiful book. It is a book that made my heart swell with love. It's a book that made me cry. It is a book where love lives.
I received this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
