Awakening Avery

Fabulous book! Laurie Lewis' newest book, Awakening Avery is well written and quite entertaining. Ms. Lewis has a strong talent for placing her characters in not only believable locations, but in believable situations. I found her writing to stay true to her characters. As a reader, I could feel Avery's spiritual and emotional journey as she dealt with the loss of her husband and the loss of her desire to delve into the most personal part of herself—her writing. I was intrigued from the beginning of the book, and pleased as Lewis wove strong subplots into her already compelling story. Awakening Avery ends in a way that makes the reader say, "Now hold on...what happens next?" and to me, that is a mark of a good book. I highly recommend Awakening Avery. You will not be disappointed!
