Stacie dumped her job, school, and maybe her future for sweet Mark. Is the grass truly greener on the other side? Is love enough? Have a peek into the life of Stacie, her highs, lows, and find out if their love will stand the test of time.
Full Circle by Buffy Eau Claire is a short story, albeit a powerful one. It’s a fantastic page-turner that’s brief but packs a punch. The plot was unique and realistic as it took on a real-life setting. The characters were perfectly developed and the storyline was unpredictable. I loved Stacie’s character because it was flawed and relatable. At her age, every young person wants to explore and be free. However, the future stays waiting. I also appreciated the thought of paying it forward with Rachael’s character. The dialogues were easy to follow, and they had a depth that embodied the emotions portrayed. At the end of the book, I learned valid lessons applicable even to adults. This is the first installment, and I applaud Buffy for a job well done.
