I found the book, "The Search" by Suzanne Woods Fisher an easy and enjoyable read. Characters were introduced in a manner that was easy to follow. The story was one that kept my interest. I enjoyed reading how the lives of Lainey, Bess, Jonah and Bertha collided. The story might come across as having a somber tone, but was kept lively with witty humor. I especially fell in love with the “giant” of a woman, Mammi Bertha and her hard to penetrate exterior mixed with her soft side. She was the "glue" to the story and kept it funny and light. I liked the fact that she was resourceful and was able to maintain her farm after her husband's passing. The other aspects of the story held a more "secret" side and although revealed early on to the reader, kept other characters in the book from "knowing" the truth. It is a love story on more than one level as well as a "coming together" of family that was torn apart by grief.
This review your honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
