Of Sand and Bone by Georgia Day is an adventurous tale about a girl named Rue who sets out on a life-changing journey after a tragedy strikes that turns her life upside down. She meets a mysterious woman named Connor who is on a journey of her own. Together, they set off into the desert where they find loneliness, isolation, and an unforgiving landscape. Along the way, they meet many odd characters, some friendly and helpful while others are deadly enemies.
Author Georgia Day’s writing style is sparse but deep and thoughtful, and her words float together in a poetic fashion. Of Sand and Bone is brilliant at times in its portrayal of the human mind as it journeys onward through unimaginable difficulties and trials. Every character, from Connor and Rue to the people they meet along the way, is a pleasing combination of realism and storybook fantasy. The author has made each character fascinating in their own unique way. I enjoyed reading Of Sand and Bone and found myself drawn into the personal struggles of the main characters. With each laborious step through the hot sand and under the merciless sun, I found myself cheering for them to keep going. Their journey became my journey, only I experienced it from the safety of my home. This novel succeeds in pulling the reader in for an immersive, enjoyable experience that won't soon be forgotten. I highly recommend Of Sand and Bone by Georgia Day.
