Did You Ever Have a Family

The theme in this book is incredibly timely especially given the recent events in Paris and other places in the world.  It shows you how fragile life is and what can happen in an instant.

June had so much going for her.  She had a boyfriend she cared about and a daughter she was building back a relationship with who was to be married.  In fact it was that event, the wedding, that had brought everyone who was important to her house.  In an instant it was all gone.

After the dust settled, June gets into her car with only the clothes she has worn for days and just drives.

The most interesting thing about this book is how the author chose to write it. June is certainly the central character but it is written through the eyes of all the others touched by this tragedy as well as June’s.  So you really don’t hear her voice often but by the end of the book you know her and the other characters.  I really loved how the author developed the story.  Give it a try.
