This book is as powerful–maybe more so–than when I first read it some years back. The pain, the beauty, the gorgeous prose, the characters who leap to life…a very rare few characters are as unforgettable, heart-breaking and inspiring as Victoria Jones.

It’s one of the books that will never be displaced from my keeper shelf. It’s not a comfortable read, but who wants easy when you can have exquisite? I feel even more so now than when I first read it: brava, Vanessa Diffenbaugh. I bow at your feet. You can buy the book here!

What’s your favorite book of this year so far?
