Review & Giveaway: The Book of Peach by Penelope J. Stokes


Priscilla (Peach) promises herself that she will never go back to her hometown. The "happily ever after" she was expecting came tumbling down. She's devastated and she keeps going over and over her life trying to figure out where she went off track. During this process, she makes friends and even starts a fling with Charles. While she was busy trying to figure everything out, it seems like everything has fallen into place. Who knew that getting divorced and moving back home could be so inspiring?

I loved this book! Priscilla is extremely strong and I felt like she was right in front of me, making her life better. She's very easy to relate to and by the end of the book, you feel a sense of closure that doesn't always happen in books.
