Sunspots by Karen S. Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sunspots is one heck of a good book. The writer does goes to great lengths to portray the struggles, trials, and general life situations faced by a woman who lost her spouse. Her portrayal of possible real life experiences that may be faced by women are very relatable.
The character Aurora is vulnerable and sensitive. Karen Bell portrays these conflicting, yet reinforcing features of her main character in such a way that the reader becomes engrossed that he/she probably won't be able to finish the book until he/she is done.
The interplay of unseen forces which push and pull the characters in directions unknown to them combined with the quirky nature of the characters portrayed by Karen Bell shows us the importance of just going with the flow of life. Fight the flow and nothing good will come of it.
In general, Sunspots is a good book for anyone who appreciates the importance of living and life in itself.
