(97) A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents by Liza Palmer

The title gives it away.

It really isn't shocking news, though. Most of us know that we will eventually have to bury our parents. Liza Palmer's new book, A Field Guide to Burying Your Parents is about Grace Hawkes & her family.

Twenty-two years ago Grace's father left her & her three siblings with their mother. Their mom became their entire world. When she is killed by a drunk driver Grace takes a page out of her Dad's playbook and just walks away. Leaves her family, her boyfriend, & just walks away.

Now a few years have passed and her sister calls. Their estranged father has had a stroke and things are not looking good. Grace needs to come home. And after 22 years, Grace is going to see her father. Is she ready to face her siblings, her ex-boyfriend, her wicked Step-Mother, and most of all, is she ready to face her father?

A Field Guide To Burying Your Parents was actually pretty good. Even though the book is obviously centers around aging parents, it has some pretty heartwarming parts. Reading about the reunion between Grace and her siblings and watching their bond strengthen as they battled the Witch was pretty cool.

The book was a fast read. Well written with engaging characters. There are a few hanky-needed moments, but for the most part the story of family unity will warm your heart. Not a bad Chick Lit book for those of you who enjoy the genre.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
