Read in September, 2012

This is Cheryl Strayed's first novel, so I was excited to read it, as I previously read her most recent book Wild. She is truly a very talented writer and really gives great descriptions of the characters.

However, the story was ok, it seemed to move slow. The story was very sad about a young mother who died and the after affects it had on her family, husband and two grown children. I read this book four months after the death of my own Mom, so it hit me like a freight train!! I would not recommend reading this after losing a loved one. Read it when your life is less stressful.
