Dear Anne: Love Letters from Nam, short story on kindle
Although in many books it's hard for the reader to relate to a character who's a famous actress, that wasn't the case in The Seeds of a Daisy. Lily, the main character, is human like the rest of us, slightly flawed like the rest of us, and going through a situation that is too horrifying for many of us to comprehend. I found myself wishing I could be there for her.
The writer does an excellent job of weaving past and present as well as introducing a variety of colorful characters along the way. The dialogue flows easily and the pages flew by.
As someone who has lived in both California and New York, I personally loved all of the specific LA and NY references. Also, the writer's experience with the entertainment industry shines through.
The book helps us examine our own lives, relationships and friendships. There's a mix of both heavy, difficult moments as well as lighter ones that will make you smile. I highly recommend it.
I have been in situations close enough to Lily Lockwood's to be caught up in both her current life and her mother's past - when I lost my mother, I found out things from her past that have haunted me to this day.
Seeds of a Daisy is the perfect summer beach novel - and if you download it before your plane takes off, you will find yourself landing just moments later.
Lily Lockwood is a wonderful and powerful female protagonist. Even though she has never been forced to make tough decisions in her life, she experiences a time of great stress when her mother is the victim of a serious car accident and the love of her life is revealed to be having an affair with the co-star of the movie he is working on.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good book to read. I can't wait until the next one is published!
I highly recommend this novel. It's a perfect read to bring to the beach, or just curl up with at the end of the day.
