The Little Giant of Aberdeen County -final chat and wrap up!

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, Tiffany Baker

First of all I wanted to note just how fun it was to co-review a book with a fellow blogger and personal friend from across many miles. Dar, from Peeking Between the Pages. I seriously recommend doing this. Dar is such a thorough book reviewer and summarizer check out her final review HERE.

Here are my thoughts on the final parts of Little Giant.

I left off in my last chat discussing Truly in her new role and I felt at the time that Truly was finding herself. Truly continues to find herself in this book despite her ever growing body and a role in life that has her stuck. It is absolutely fantastic the way that Tiffany Baker weaves and molds the story with exquisite narration. The book becomes suspenseful and very dramatic in a very cozy way. It is very hard to put down as we have watched Truly and her struggles and then the story moves into her discovery that threatens to challenge her own existence and her family morales and values. How will Truly handle the power of the knowledge that she possesses? How does Truly handle the diagnosis given to her by Robert Morgan? He lords this information over her and uses it to control her. Will Truly be able to break free? How is Truly able to handle the attention from Marcus? So many questions and links into this clever and sweet drama. This book is about family tradition, loyalty, a small town and secrets revealed. It is also about making mistakes and forgiveness.

The writing and the storyline is very fresh and unique and I can't see anyone not being captivated by this book.
