Wow! Just, wow! How's that for a review? Well, it's definitely the way I felt about The Second Diary, the absolutely fabulous work by author Ciara Threadgoode. This book will have its readers obsessively turning the pages from the very first words all the way through to the very last, and will have them laughing and even wiping away tears at times. Follow the story of an unexpected find, that of the second, secret diary of one Dorothy Rose Nolte Hughes, discovered by her granddaughter Cherry after Dorothy had passed away. While her first diary contained the mundane details of her life, those that many would expect to find in the diary of an older woman, this one contained the real dirt and this spunky woman's true thoughts about what was going on around her, often with hilarious results!
I loved The Second Diary. Loved. It. How's that for a review? I loved its fun premise, the characters detailed so well and lovingly by author Ciara Threadgoode, and the investigation of one family's life over the course of two generations. I have never read a book quite like this one, and since I am a prolific readers, that is truly saying a great deal. Any reader who loves a fun read of fiction, a story about families, or just a story with a great deal of heart should definitely read this book! I highly recommend The Second Diary, and I absolutely look forward to reading more from the very talented author, Ciara Threadgoode, as soon as I possibly can!
