This is the first book that I’ve read by Sarah Jio and I am ashamed of that. What a wonderfully and beautifully written novel. The story touched my soul and took me on a journey of a lifetime. I used to write reviews on a blog called Book Club Queen and I know my partner over there has read and reviewed some of Sarah’s older novels. I have had her novels on my Barnes & Noble wishlist for some time now but have not gotten around to purchasing them. While out Christmas shopping this past Holiday season, I came across Morning Glory and grabbed it. I am so happy that I did.
Living life on a houseboat has always fascinated me and this story has just rekindled that desire to at least vacation on a houseboat at some point in my life. Ada and Penny are two women that have lived through some trying situations and there strength is admirable. I loved how the characters in the story tied together and I recommend this to everyone! I give this book 5 crowns for individuals and book club groups alike.
