A couple weekends ago I stumbled across a used bookstore in a nearby town. Well, by nearby I mean about 45 minutes away It’s a small place, but filled floor to ceiling with books. (Tammy’s Bookworm in Houghton Lake, Michigan) I’m not sure why, but stepping into bookstores, especially used bookstores, is always so calming.
As I browsed through shelves and shelves of books I came across Trouble the Water by Nicole Seitz. Last week I started this wonderful novel and finished it within a couple days. I was captured…from the very first page. Nicole was able to drop me straight into the story and surround me with characters that I took an instant liking to. The story is told from the perspective of three different characters; Duchess, Honor and Alice. It’s a story of friendship, sisterhood, and forgiveness. It has a bittersweet ending, but is a story that will stick with you long after you finish.
