5 posts | 2 read | 5 to read
Stevie's life seems safe and full of love until the day tragedy strikes. Stevie is sent to live with her estranged grandfather Winston at his rundown motel. Though the colorful tenants who inhabit the motel are quickly charmed by Stevie, she struggles to connect with her grandfather. What dark secret is he keeping from her? It will take another difficult departure before Winston realizes just how strongly Stevie has taken root at the motel--and in his heart. With unwavering emotion and masterful storytelling, National Book Award-winning author Kimberly Willis Holt explores themes of loss, family, love, and the importance of finding a place to call home.

Definitely another winner by Kimberly Willis Holt! Though touched throughout with sadness, it isn't a sad story. It's about blooming where you're planted, making the best of everything, seeing the good things there are to see, and learning from the mistakes of your parents and grandparents. And it has a wonderful array of really cool characters. I so enjoyed this story!

Now I feel settled back in at home! Picked up the dogs from their grandparents' and my library holds and then some. Didn't expect to leave my heart in Maui, though. Can I just live there? Become independently wealthy? For now, I'll just savor this batch of books. #bookhaul #libraryhaul #dogsoflitsy #henry

Hooked_on_books After my Hawaii trip in April, I'm wanting to move there and run a B&B. Maybe someday! 2y
