On our vacation I brought along the new book (An Honest House: A Memoir, Continued) of one of my favorite authors and bloggers, Cynthia Reyes.
Living on a small hobby farm, working part time, having two children who play multiple travel level sports, and trying to fit in a little me time is always a challenge. I figured I would be able to get in at least a chapter or two while away for those 6 days. After the third day, my family threatened to hide my book as I finished it and was starting it over again. I did not want to put it down!!
I read Cynthia’s first book, “A Good Home” last year while on vacation. I read it again during our Christmas break from work. I could not wait when Cynthia announced her new book would be coming out this year!
In her first book, Cynthia shares the history of her life coming from Jamaica to Canada. She relates how her homes defined each part of her life in such a way you can envision each place and home. Her life is rolling along exactly how life should be. And then you learn of the terrible car accident which changes everything. She touches briefly on how her life changed and how she moves forward.
In “An Honest House” Cynthia explains in more detail the toll the chronic pain and PTSD take on her, how it affects her family, and the new home they had just moved into. She shares the daily challenges she faces and how she has found a way to cope and live with the love of her family and friends!
You can find both of Cynthia’s books on Amazon here:
You will not be disappointed!!!
I love your book reviews, and ending with “You will not be disappointed!!!” (three exclamation points, count ’em 3) is a clear thumbs-up for me. An avid (ferocious!) reader, I’ve added them to my list. Thank you for the recommendations.
Thank you, Tina, for your warm and kind recommendations of my books. I’m thankful to you for reading them, and for putting a whole post on your blog about them. What an honour!
