In Search of Adam

I knew that I had to be in a good place mentally before I began Jude's journey which is why I have left Caroline Smailes' In Search of Adam on the tbr pile until now. I knew I couldn't read it when my world was upside down. This was right. Reading In Search of Adam turns your world upside down and steps on it - yet it is beautiful. The words are beautiful and the story terrible. I think of the words used for Northern Ireland during the Troubles - a terrible beauty. That sums up In Search of Adam for me. Caroline leads us through a a life so tortured and sad with such beauty and grace. Thank you. I am not sure I could have continued following Jude in the book had the words not been so exquisite. It is an important story to read. Read In Search of Adam - it's beauty will keep you and its sadness will haunt you.......
