Saving Cicadas by Nicole Seitz Review

About the Book:
A novel of unconditional love and the freedom of letting go.

When single mother Priscilla Lynn Macy learns she’s having another child unexpectedly, she packs the family into the car to escape. Eight-year-old Janie and Rainey Dae, her seventeen-year-old sister with special needs, embark on the last family vacation they’ll ever take with Poppy and Grandma Mona in the back seat.

The trip seems aimless until Janie realizes they are searching for the father who left them years ago. When they can’t find him, they make their way to Forest Pines, SC. Priscilla hasn’t been to her family home in many years and finds it a mixed blessing of hope, buried secrets, and family ghosts.

Through eyes of innocence, Janie learns the hard realities of life and the difficult choices grownups make. And she must face disturbing truths about the people she loves in order to carry them in the moments that matter most.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book! It has strong messages, characters you can love, and a twisty plot that will keep you wondering til the very end. I think what I enjoyed most about this book was the innocence of a child’s mind as well as the meaning of a life and letting go.

Completely captivating, Nicole Seitz takes you on a ride of faith, hope, life and innocence, leaving you in a different place with each new turn. This is a book that I would recommend to all those who want an amazing,wonderful, moving book. You will laugh,cry and smile through the whole story!

I rate this book with a definite 2 thumbs up and 5 stars! EXCELLENT!!!

    I think I may be the only person who doesn’t want books to make her cry.
