Dosha (Bluestocking7) Beard (bluestocking7) | 3232 comments You can try paperbackswap.com or used bookstores?

I have had some luck with paper back swap dot com in the past.

Crys | 6 comments Sounds interesting. Can’t wait to read and discuss. Sounds like a good candidate for a medium bodied red 🤔

Jocelynn Bryant (bookedmermaid71) | 1 comments Does anyone have a good site for an audiobook for this one? I would love to join in on this discussion.

Local Library and Audible. Unfortunately Scribd doesn’t have it yet.


message 21: by Dedria (new)

Dedria A. | 246 comments It just was published last month by Penguin at $27 so I doubt it would be used or in any firm other than print. Our libraries are closed here so ....

Jocelynn, try Libby it's an app. It's through the library. That's where I'm getting my copy. It's audio. I'm #5 on the waiting list. I hope this helps and that you get a copy.

message 29: by Trudy (new)

Trudy (goodreadscomtrudyspages) | 414 comments I got to about 20%. No quite sure what to think of this story yet.


message 30: by Trudy (new)

Trudy (goodreadscomtrudyspages) | 414 comments One of the reviewers compared this book to THE HEALING by Jonathan Odell. I read that book quite awhile ago and since I gave it 4.5 stars, I obviously enjoyed it. Unfortunately, though, I don’t remember much about it. Anyone agree?

I’ve completed part one and so far I’m fully engaged. I don’t know how I feel about the flip flopping between different time periods, but it’s not confusing....yet. Lol

Do you feel this is a coming of age story for Rue?

What about Bruh Abel? Is he a symbol of the new “modern” times?


message 36: by Trudy (last edited Jun 08, 2020 12:42PM) (new)

Dosha (Bluestocking7) Beard (bluestocking7) | 3232 comments I agree Trudy, He’s driving me and Ru crazy. He’s up to something. I’m almost to part two and it seems there is a struggle for power going on between the two of them.
