REVIEW OF THE ARRIVALS BY MEG MITCHELL MOORE (GIVEAWAY)

I want to welcome, Meg Mitchell Moore to Books R Us. Meg is the author of her debut novel The Arrivals and is presently touring the blogosphere.          


The Arrivals: A NovelIt’s early summer when Ginny and William’s peaceful life in Vermont comes to an abrupt halt.

First, their daughter Lillian arrives, with her two children in tow, to escape her crumbling marriage. Next, their son Stephen and his pregnant wife Jane show up for a weekend visit, which extends indefinitely when Jane ends up on bed rest. When their youngest daughter Rachel appears, fleeing her difficult life in New York, Ginny and William find themselves consumed again by the chaos of parenthood – only this time around, their children are facing adult problems.
By summer’s end, the family gains new ideas of loyalty and responsibility, exposing the challenges of surviving the modern family – and the old adage, once a parent, always a parent, has never rung so true.

My Thoughts-

What a fantastic book. I REALLY enjoyed it. All of the characters were unforgettable and realistic. The author has a wonderful way with words and the story flowed perfectly. It was a page turner and I stayed up until 2 am to finish the book. There was sadness, humor, excitement all bundled up in a fantastic novel. There were many memorable parts in the book but I especially enjoyed the chapter when William took on the washing machine and the cleaning. Boy, was that a humorous part of the book. It reminded me of what happens in my house. I do not want to spoil the book for you so you will have to go out and pick yourself up a copy. This is the best book that I had read all year and I highly recommend it to be read by a book club. I cannot wait to read the author's next novel.
