it was amazing

An exceptional story that will leave antique lovers drooling, nature lovers longing for the outdoors, animal lovers running to make a donation to their local animal shelter or humane society, and hopeless romantics swooning.

I seriously can't believe that I waited a whole month to read this novel. I should have picked it up immediately. Looking for Me is storytelling at its best. Teddi and her brother Josh grew up on a farm in Kentucky. While she loves to give new life to old things like furniture, Josh becomes a protector of nature. Their father fosters their passions while their mother begrudgingly goes along with it. As Teddi and Josh grow up, they take their own journeys away from home. Their stories are both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Some of the overall themes of this beautiful novel are the power of family ties, the bonds of friendship, and the power of love.

I highly recommend this touching story. It's so well written, you'd think that these people exist in the world, not just on the page. I don't think I will ever look at an antique or go into a resale shop without thinking about this novel. Nor will I ever take a walk in a national park or wildlife preserve without it coming to mind. It's simply beautiful. Memorable.

Thank you to Pamela Dorman Books for the review copy.

Heather, that's a really good question. The only one I am aware of is Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews


Lady Willpower Good question, Heather! First thing that comes to mind is Flight Patterns by Karen White.
