The First Day of Spring by Nancy Tucker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Phooey. Where do I start?
I feel mixed up like I’ve something wrong with me!
This is one disturbing book.
The first sentence I was WHAT!
A quarter of the way through I was OH MY GOODNESS POOR LITTLE LOVE ( now that disturbed me) as I’ve got sympathy, understanding and raw empathy with this child who killed someone then as an adult whose hiding this secret.
This is a debut like no other in this subject matter that’s thrown me in circles and bashed me head first into a wall. My thoughts were all over the place.
Childhood is precious.
Yes I know it’s fiction, but could just as easily be fact.
Nancy Tucker is someone I’m keeping my eye on for future books.
I love books that impacts and this certainly did.
The audio is good. Listen to it on normal speed though for full effect.
