From Goodreads:

Excellent Brain Candy! I ALWAYS read 3 or 4 books at a time- something hilarious (Jen Lancaster, David Sedaris,Tina Fey,Nora Ephron) a best- seller,a little non-fiction (I’ve been reading The Power of Now of six years,and I’m only on Chapter Four, but I really like it) and I have to slog through my book- club’s selection of the month.”

Unburying Hope” is so addicting that I put my other books aside and pretty much couldn’t do ANYTHING until I learned the fates of Eddie, the mysterious, tortured and smoking hot vet (not the kind who gives your dog his flea meds),Celeste, the hopeful, Motor City-loving grafitti artist, and her fabulous bestie Frank.

The characters are authentic, the plot line is riveting- but- believable, and the book is thought-provoking and just plain fun to read. I can’t really say much more, because of the spoiler alert thing, but trust me- it’s a great read. The day after I read this book I woke up wondering how Frank was doing …..and experienced that post-book disappointment when you remember you finished the book, and you are going to miss your favorite characters.
