The Book Report: And The Whippoorwill Sang by Micki Peluso

On The Book Report:
And The Whippoorwill Sang
by Micki Peluso
 
 
I love this heartwarming family tale, And The Whippoorwill Sang by Micki Peluso!  It is beautifully written and I could not put this book down.
It is about a large family handling the constant changes in their lives as the grow up and the heartbreaking lost of one young daughter. The story is part family struggles; part lost, and part romantic comedy. Think a touch of the TV show The MIDDLEs Mike and Frankie.
Micki Pelusos descriptive style as well as her description of emotions and places add charm and meaning to the story. She defines each of her children and family members well. I feel that I really know this family.
When I got this book I was worried about how I would be emotionally while reading it having lost members of my own family. I rarely read non-fiction. But in truth, I was able to fully relate and see parts of my own life that would have been upsetting, now with clarity.
