Review & Giveaway: The Map Of True Places by Brunonia Barry


Zee didn't grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth. She didn't have a mother to show her how to act but lucky for her she did have a talent, a talent for stealing boats.

As an adult, Zee's life changed dramatically. She is a therapist who really cares about her patients. She's also engaged to a man that other women want. It almost seems as if Zee has it all. But when one of her patients, Lilly, commits suicide, Zee is thrown into a downward spiral. The whole map of her life is starting to feel like a blank page. Now, she has the chance to start fresh and change the map of her life for the future.

Every once in a while, a book comes along that touches you in ways you didn't know were possible. This is one of those books. Zee is one of the easiest characters to relate to. She invokes strong emotions that seem to leap from the page. Bruonia is an amazing writer who doesn't disappoint.
