#TheThingsWeDoForLove #KristinHannah #BookSpinBingo

The youngest of three daughters, Angela DeSaria Malone was always “the princess” of the family, a girl who thought she knew how her life would unfold. High School. College. Marriage. Motherhood. That was how it had gone for her sisters, her cousins, her friends. But it didn‘t work out that way for Angie.

EadieB She and her husband tried desperately to have a child; year after year, their perfectly decorated nursery remained empty. Finally, their marriage collapsed under the weight of lost dreams.
After the divorce, Angie moved back to her hometown and rejoined her loud, loving, slightly crazy family.
3mo
EadieB In West End, a place where life rises and falls in time with the tides, she will find the man who once again will open her heart to love . . . and meet the girl who will change Angie‘s life.
Lauren Ribido lives in a rundown apartment in a bad part of town with a mother who cares more about her next drink than about her daughter. At seventeen, Lauren knows that her aspirations in life may never come to pass.
3mo
EadieB From the moment they meet, Angie sees something special in Lauren. They form a quick connection, this woman who is desperate for a daughter and the girl who has never known a mother‘s love. When Lauren is abandoned by her mother, Angie doesn‘t hesitate to offer the girl a place to stay. But nothing could have prepared Angie for the far-reaching repercussions of this act of kindness. 3mo

EadieB In a dramatic turn of events, she and Lauren will be tested in a way that mothers and daughters seldom are. Together they will embark on an intensely moving, deeply emotional journey to the very heart of what it means to be a family. 3mo
EadieB This was a really great Kristin Hannah story. It was touching and heartfelt. I didn't think I was going to like it but I really got into the story and when I finished it, I was glad I read it until the end. I only have a few more Hannah books to read but I haven't read a bad one yet. Looking forward to my next Hannah book! 3mo

I am a Kristin Hannah fan! This wasn‘t my favorite book that I‘ve read by her, but it was very good. It may have been a little predictable. It was a very nice story that kept me reading. If you want to read a story about family, life‘s struggles and love, this one is for you.

This is my third Kristin Hannah book and I‘m amazed how she can make my heart ache, but in a good way, with each book. She is able to make you feel like you are part of the family where their laughs are your laughs and their sadness is your sadness. A great book that made me teary eyed that I highly recommend.

Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite authors. I am slowly making my way through her back list. This one features a newly divorced woman who goes home to help her family‘s failing restaurant. Just when I thought I knew where this was going I was pulled in a different direction. Loved it! 4⭐️book 79

Tracyantoon Ashamed to admit I haven‘t read any from her yet but I have lots on my TBR. What should I start with? 2y
TerriGreen @Tracyantoon my favorite is Winter Garden followed by The Nightingale both are historical. My favorite contemporary of hers is On Mystic Lake. All 5⭐️. 2y

I really loved this book! I love the different characters and how they filled certain holes in each other's hearts. It felt believable and like all Kristin's books, it was wonder.

Kristin Hannah can write a good story! I couldn't sleep last night and so all I did was read. If a book is boring it puts me to sleep after 10 minutes. I was up until after 2:30am... and it was still hard for me to put it down.
It's not an exciting book, but I wanted to know what happened! The characters and storyline were endearing, and better yet- the ending wasn't what I expected.
4 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The_Real_Nani That‘s kind of how I felt about The Great Alone! I wanted to know what happened at the end so I kept reading even though I didn‘t LOVE the book. LOL 3y

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. This was my first time reading a book by Kristin Hannah and the ease of her words create beautiful human stories. I will definitely make it a point to check out some of her other titles. Happy reading all!

I absolutely loved this book!! It was so comforting and homey if that makes any sense. The characters were great and I plan on reading another one of this author's books. I loved the love and religious aspect of the books as well. Makes you feel good that hopeful. 💗

As always, Kristin Hannah did not disappoint. I feel like I knew the characters personally and was sad to see the story end.
