The Arrivals by Meg Mitchell Moore

Meg Mitchell Moore's debut novel was a wonderful read. The layout was a little different as there are no chapters in this novel. Instead, the book is separated into each of the summer months.

From the cover: It's the start of the summer when Ginny and William Owen's quiet, peaceful life in Burlington, Vermont, comes to an abrupt halt.

One by one, the children arrive home, bringing with them their baggage, not all of which is in a suitcase. Each of us can see a little of ourselves in one or more of the characters who Ms. Moore crafts into believable people. Whether dealing with an empty nest, or a full one, you will be pulled into this story.

If I had a rating system for my reviews, this would be a definite 10.

Thank you Frugality is Free - I won this book in a giveaway.
