A story about three sisters suffering loss at a young age and how they grow up and grow together. Full of twists and turns, love and heartache. Which sister will you see yourself in?
I love to read! Even when I was a kid I enjoyed reading. I would read the cereal box in the morning, shampoo bottles while I was on the pot (I know TMI - too much info), whatever I could get my hands on, I would read. I loved Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys, Gentle Ben and the Black Stallion when I was young. The Pilot's Wife, Emma's Gift and the Christmas Bus have been some great stories as I've grown.
When I walk into a book store (namely Barnes & Noble where I live) I get excited and calm at the same time. Stepping into a book allows me to step away from the challenges of living in the "real" world with responsibilities and bills. When I read I get a vision of what the people look like, what their surroundings are like...in my mind I have a very clear picture as the story is being told.
Because I consider buying a book a luxury I usually shop the discount table. I don't have to be the first one to read it when it comes out! Just like I don't have to see a movie the day it's released...I can wait for the DVD.
When I picked up 'True Colors' I couldn't put it down. The author had me from the first chapter! This is a great book for any style of reader. It's fast moving and descriptive with great flow. The only down side...there is an end :-( I will miss Dallas and Vivi just like I miss all of the characters I've met in all of the good books over the years.
**I forgot to add...this is a beautifully bound book. When you remove the dust cover you are met with a lovely mauve color with silver embossing. Hey - I told you I love books!**
