Stories That Bind Us by Susie Finkbeiner

Betty Sweet never expected to be a widow at 40. With so much life still in front of her, she tries to figure out what's next. She couldn't have imagined what God had in mind. When her estranged sister is committed to a sanitarium, Betty finds herself taking on the care of a 5-year-old nephew she never knew she had.

In 1960s LaFontaine, Michigan, they make an odd pair. Betty with her pink button nose and bouffant hair. Hugo with his light brown skin and large brown eyes. But more powerful than what makes them different is what they share: the heartache of an empty space in their lives. Slowly, they will learn to trust one another as they discover common ground and healing through the magic of storytelling.

Award-winning author Susie Finkbeiner offers fans a novel that invites us to rediscover the power of story to open the doors of our hearts.

My Review

Another magical read from Susie Finkbeiner, and she does not disappoint, you will be drawn in from the first page. She sure has a way with words, and while you will find your heart breaking at times for the main character here, you will also find that it is being warmed and bringing smiles to you at a different time.
We are offered Betty Sweet, but with her comes her husbands family, and they will wrap you up in their warmth and kindness, they sure lived their faith!
I found myself wondering how this was going to end, but we are entertained through out this read with delightful made up stories, and we find that the gifts keep giving, in the most unexpected ways!

I received this book through LibraryThing, and was not required to give a positive review.
