Book Review: Blackberry Winter

Last weekend I dug into the book “Blackberry Winter” By: Sarah Jio

It was such a good book that I finished it in less than 24 hours! I just couldn’t put it down. The basis of the story starts with a winter storm in May of 1933 where a little boy goes missing in the middle of the night. From there, the story jumps back and forth between 1933 mother looking for her child to a modern day journalist writing a story on the storm in 1933. As the present day journalist, Claire, discovers more and more about the events surrounding the 1933 case, the reader becomes suspicious that Claire and the boys mother, Vera, are somehow connected.

I think that is what really kept me hooked in to the story. I really wanted to know what happened to the little boy and how the two women are connected. About halfway through the story you find out that Claire has also lost a child in her own tragic incident. This just gives her more fuel to her fire to find out what happened to the poor little boy in that winter storm.

There are multiple twists near the end of the story, but by the end of it I was satisfied with the conclusion and would consider it a great book! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, enjoyable read.

Have you read any good books lately? Do you have any recommendations for my next read?
