Having read Miranda Beverly-Whittemore’s book Bittersweet, and thoroughly enjoying it, I had a good feeling I would enjoy her new book June as well. She is a talented writer and this is such a good story.
What would you do if you inherited an old, neglected mansion and had very little funds to fix it up? What if you lost your grandma who raised you, broke up with your boyfriend, left the big city and your career, and moved to a small town in Ohio? Would you be depressed? Cassie, one of the main characters felt quite depressed when she found herself in this situation. However, she couldn’t remain this way for long because one day there is someone at the door who informs her she has just inherited a vast fortune from a famous movie star. From this moment her life will be changed forever.
This novel travels back and for between June 2015 and June 1955. The author does a brilliant job of taking the reader on an amazing journey with twists and turns and just when the reader thinks she know what’s going on, a surprise awaits her. It’s a wonderful read!
Surely I am not the only person that feels a little sad when a book is coming to a close. This book could definitely be a page turner, but I savored it. If you enjoy a book that has well developed characters, an interesting plot, a nice bit of diversity, and twists and turns, this is the book for you.
Also, I must mention the stately home, Two Oaks, is at the heart of the story. This is such an interesting read, and I highly recommend it.
