Wonderful, Warm And Witty
What We Find by Robyn Carr is a delightful contemporary novel about family, life and fresh starts. It is the first book in the Sullivan’s Crossing series.
The characters are wonderfully warm and welcoming, giving the reader the feeling of wanting to dive into the community in the book. It is a community that pulls together – strangers are welcomed as friends and needs are met.
The dialogued exchanged is light hearted and witty with characters bouncing off each other.
There is the theme of loss. “I’m supposed to treasure what is good and move on.” This is easier said than done. Sullivan’s Crossing is a place where hearts go to heal and new beginnings are possible.
What We Find explores what true treasure is and what it is not. True treasure is always to be found in people. You cannot buy it. You cannot lose it. There is the family love, the love of friends and a blossoming second chance love.
I adored What We Find. It was my first book by Robyn Carr and I really ‘felt’ a part of the action. I ‘lived’ my way through the novel rather than just reading it. A warm and witty offering.
A word of caution – there were a couple of bedroom scenes with far too much detail for me, so I skipped over them. They certainly did not detract from my overall enjoyment of the book which was immense.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
