Amy #19 Finished True Colors True Colors by Kristin Hannah I have thoroughly enjoyed all her books. This one not only beautifully tells the story of bonds between sister(like all her books)it has a story of wrongful conviction woven through it.

Thanks for your thoughts on this book. It is on my to buy list, but it will be awhile before I purchase it as in Canada that book is over $30.00. So I wait the year for it to come out in Trade Paperback. Something to look forward to for next year.
