What does every girl do when they feel life is out of control. They go home. Or at least the place that feels most like home. Emily goes to Bainbridge Island and to her Aunt Bee. At her Aunt's she finds a diary from years gone by. Emily becomes immersed in the diary and the past. Will the diary answer as many questions as it raises? Will Emily be able to get past her writer's block and finally be happy? Or will the diary stir up more trouble for Emily?
I really enjoyed The Violets of March. The relationship that Emily has with her Aunt Bee reminds me a bit of the relationship I had with my late Aunt Mary. It really touched a tender spot in my heart. As the the story in the diary starts to unfold you can slowly see Emily "come back to life" it was wonderful to follow. I think it is a great read to add to the beach bag and I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did!
