Making Wishes by Marilyn Holdsworth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is one of the BEST books I have read in a long time where character development is concerned. The conflicts of Elloree and her family are so compelling and transcending that it had me thinking about the book long after I had finished. The only thing that didn’t work for me was that I sometimes felt as if I was being told too much at the same time.
Overall, Marilyn Holdsworth has managed to do something rather wonderful in this gentle story. I was definitely absorbed in the book, and it was more than a satisfying page turner; there were many moments in the book when I felt the characters were real and I was part of their textured world.
At one and the same time I was eager to be making the continuing journey of narrative , and yet – I wanted to stay exactly where I was and savor the moment, the reality of where the characters were NOW – she had somehow stopped time for me and I was reading in a very present way, inside the world of Elloree.
This is a book for all times. The characters are so vividly real that the reader can almost touch and talk with them. Loved it.
