Hope Farms by Peggy Frew is narrated by, adult age,
Overall the story was good, it showed a young girl’s venture into her teenage years, but the reader begins to see that Silver is being thrust into adulthood quicker than her years should allow. I will be honest I struggled relating to the characters I couldn’t put myself in Silver’s point of view or her mother, Ishtar’s, point of view. This struggle made it difficult for me to get into the story.
I did really enjoy how the story was told by Silver but was intertwined with her mother’s journal entries. I felt that allowed the reader, as well as, Silver to finally begin to understand her mother. This book makes you realize that even adults that “you put on a pedal stool” are struggling to understand and find their place in the world.
GBC Reader Reviews
I am writing to share an update on behalf of all of us at The Girly Book Club as we manage COVID-19. As we all know, the events of the past days and weeks have been unprecedented and our team continues to monitor and navigate this rapidly changing situation with the rest of the world.
At the GBC, we care deeply about doing what we can to keep our people and communities well – we are grounded in this intention, which makes difficult choices a little easier to make.
As a result, we have cancelled ALL of our global in-person monthly meetings for March. As a result, we will be holding a GLOBAL GBC Book Club, which we hope will appeal to our members far and wide (more info below.)
We’ll be honoring all tickets sold for March meetings and transferring them to April’s meetings or you can request a refund if you’d prefer.
