Monday Review by the Book Dragon: A Story That Will Touch Your Heart

Even though there are no dragons in this contemporary inspirational story, the Book Dragon highly recommends Carry Me Home by Valerie Howard and gives it 5 claws!
My 5 star review on Amazon: "I normally don't read "quiet" books like this (preferring epic fantasy) but the lovely cover and the blurb drew me in, since I unexpectedly became a caregiver for my crotchety 86-year-old father-in-law last year. I thought this book might give me insights, and it gave MUCH more. I ached for Amanda, for the path her life had taken, both through choices others made, and poor choices she made. I wanted so much for things to work out for her that it was difficult to put this book down! Her crotchety patient was so believable; in fact, every character, major and minor, was imminently believable! The writing is superb, and the story touches your heart and will remain there forever."
