Far From You by Lisa Schroeder

Rating: 4.5/5
Alice lost her mother to cancer, years ago. The pain is still present to this day. She covers her sadness in music, lyrics writing, her best friend Claire, and her boyfriend, Blaze.
Her father is remarried and the baby is coming soon. When Ivy does arrive, Alice doesn't want to see or Victoria. When she learns that she has to go to Victoria's parents for Thanksgiving. She is not happy.
Thanksgiving doesn't go that well and to top it off, her father has to leave for buisness. Victoria decides to leave early, inorder to miss a winter storm. Alice wakes up and there is snow everywhere. She realizes that she will have to work with Victoria inorder to live.
I liked this book. It made me think, about what I would do. About love and lost. Also, myself. Schroeder is a master of verse. Each word has an impact to the story. If you liked her debut novel I Heart You, You Haunt Me, you will love this. I highly reccomend this and hope you like it.
Lisa is a member of Author2Author. The other members, Kate, Kristina, Deena, and Emily all are interesting and create great blogs. Check it out.
Happy Reading!
