Far From You Review

Far from YouFar from You by Lisa Schroeder

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my third.
I've read reviews
I've heard people talk.
Some good.
Some bad.

But honestly,
I think this is by far
her best
of the three.

She said,
this is her least known.
I don't know why.

It's not really
about the story
as much as it is
about evoking
great emotion.
The characters aren't
but they do
The plot isn't
but keeps you

I sat on my couch
reading the last of it,
tears streaming down my face,
emotion overflowed.

Her books are journeys
from negative
to positive.
A common thread
in all her works
Death is not
the end.
