Stories That Bind Us by Susie Finkbeiner

A new book by Susie Finkbeiner? After I read All Manner of Things, I knew I would read her subsequent books. That book was so good. I’m comes Stories That Bind Us! I was excited to see another book by this author. I had probably, too high expectations for the book. It started out fantastic. The characters are amazingly well written. The story floats along at the beginning. And then I feel like it kind of stagnates. The story is still good but it is slow. It’s very real life in pace. Not the super high flashy stories of Hollywood. The slow small town stories we know growing up. The ones we feel don’t mean much. There’s power behind the words of the story. The characters live life and find life in their family. I love the way Susie Finkbeiner writes her sentences. They have meaning. However, I found myself just a little bored with this book and wondering where it was headed. It was nice that it was unpredictable. That’s hard to do! Overall the story was nice. Not gripping like the first book I read. Would I recommend it? Sure. Yea. Would I read it a 2nd time? No. It won’t be a repeat read for me. I gave the book 3 stars. I received a copy from the publisher. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
