52 Books in 52 Weeks - Book 43: Perfect Reader
Maggie Pouncey's touching novel tells the story of Flora Dempsey and how she comes to terms with her father's death. Flora finds layer after layer of her father's character and history, learning through his friends just how much she did not know about her father's fascinating wife. His retirement work as a poet and the way that he kept up with his friends and forged new friendships (including a lady friend) was a revelation to her. This delightful book gives one a reason to look at your family members in a whole new light and desire to get in on their dreams - what is it that they want for their future?
