The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

A book review

My love: ♥♥♥♥♥

This is a book filled with beautiful enchanting prose. Strange events and stranger people through four generations of women and their love demises. From the first line until the very end, you are taken inside this beautiful melody of a story. Even the characters' names were both beautiful and strange. I began reading with an expectation in mind, a love story, a boy falling for an angel. I got an amazing story of love and sorrows which broke my heart over and over again for each and every character, except for Wilhemina. I think she was the only sane one, serving as their healer and guide. The way how she helped them process their sorrows in the end was an amazing touch. I can not talk much about this book without giving much away. Lets just say my new moleskine reading journal started with a bang and 6 pages filled with all the emotions this book cause me to have.

“Love, as most know, follows its own timeline, disregarding our intentions or well-rehearsed plans.” 

I am looking forward to reading more books from Leslye Walton and I might include her in my favorite authors list along with Sarah Addison Allen and Neil Gaiman.
