5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written book full of emotions but not pathetic, so convincing and life-like
“Diary of a Wildflower” by Ruth White was one of the biggest positive reading surprises for me lately.

The book describes the life of a young girl Lorelei Starr and her family from the early 20th century who grows in an isolated mountain place somewhere in Virginia. The book is written in a form of a diary that details her childhood and girlhood...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read
A light read, and to be honest, i wanted to keep reading , despite being a bit predicable. But it was well written with a good balance of dialogue and descriptive. I would probably read something by this author again.

This review is from: Diary of a Wildflower (Kindle Edition)
“Diary of a Wildflower” by Ruth White was one of the biggest positive reading surprises for me lately.

The book describes the life of a young girl Lorelei Starr and her family from the early 20th century who grows in an isolated mountain place somewhere in Virginia. The book is written in a form of a diary that details her childhood and girlhood slowly. Lorelei describes events from those earliest marked by her family’s great poverty to those a bit nicer when she’ll get the opportunity to rise from the environment in which she grew up and even realize some of her dreams. Even though over her head is constant threat that if she makes some wrong step all that she lives and dreams for can perish...

The book is written as if the author knows Lorelei and her family’s history firsthand. I even expected to the book’s end that such info will be found because all written is so convincing and life-like that it must have been a true story.

At no time author doesn’t fall into the trap of clichés and what reader expect to happen resulting that until the book’s end the reader isn’t sure whether the book will end up with happy or less happy ending.

“Diary of a Wildflower” is beautifully written book full of emotions but not pathetic that will appeal to all those who still believe that with persistence and mature decisions one can achieve a lot, even if you don’t have luck to be born into a wealthy family.

And to those who still believe in fairy tales, although I won’t tell whether this one has a happy ending. For that you will have to read a book, and believe me it's worth it.
