The adventures of the author's imagination lures you into her world and keeps you ever present. Nana's Girl is a bucket list for Samantha O'Connor who, at a young age, loses the shining light in her life--her grandmother who was her anchor. This story is mixed with fact and fiction because in real life, the author's grandmother suffered through breast cancer without ever telling anyone. In life and in the story, this fact opens Sam's eyes to the virtues of life being too precious to sit around without reaching for the stars--and she does!
I loved this story and can't wait to read more by this author. I applaud her for donating her profit to breast cancer research which is all the more reason to buy this book.
I enjoyed roaming through Boston with the author and hearing about living in Denver. The story's main theme of an independent woman dealing with true romance ties together throughout the book with her life encounters. I especially enjoyed reading the chapter about her trip to Peru, having also spent some time at some of the same places while visiting there. Though I was sorry to hear about her Nana being another victim to breast cancer, I found the book well written and found that it was easy to imagine myself in the writer's place.
