“I love books about people who love books. In the words of Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery), the characters are kindred spirits, who understand the happiness books bring, and that the stories within its page give readers exactly what they need.
Canadian author Shari Green must be a true book lover because her characters in Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess certainly are….
The book is written in free prose, which makes it a quick read.
Macy is a wonderful character, and it’s amazing to watch her grow and come to terms with a life that is being forced on her.
Iris is also fabulous. Not only is she a book lover, she is also the believer in the power of cookies, and in her younger days delivered messages with cookies, each type telling the recipient something different – chocolate chunk cookies, Iris says, tells people everything will be OK; sugar and spice cookies (with a recipe at the end of the book) says you are loved, that you belong.
An important message in this book, and in life.”
