Shelter: A Novel
by Frances Greenslade
Shelter is a deep look at a family in turmoil. A story of Maggie and her sister Jenny are living with their parents life is a struggle for their parents to make ends meet but they manage. Then their father is killed at work leaving them with no money. Their mother needed to find work and she drops the girls off with a neighbour and friend of their father’s. Told from the younger daughter Maggie’s point of view, we feel all the emotions of children suddenly thrust into lives they don’t understand and their hope that they will see their mother again soon because she hasn’t abandoned them.A haunting story that grips the reader as you want to know the entire story of what happens to the children and feel all the emotions right along with them.
The book story has vivid images and descriptions of Williams British Columbia that will leave the viewer spellbound and give much needed background to the actions of the protagonists. I truly enjoyed this read and the unbroken sisterly bond displayed in this book.
5 ☆☆out of 5 ☆☆☆☆☆
