This is a really lovely heartfelt story. Bette is a fantastic story teller. Her books are so gripping you just want to keep reading until the end.
In this book we meet the lovely Jubilee & her brother Paul. We also get the joy of reading more from the characters in Spare Change including Ethan and Olivia.
I'm not going to say much about what happens in this story as the twists came as a great surprise to me.
I highly recommend you 1-click these two brilliant books. They are two brilliant books that you can get lost in.
Since then I've read a few.
This is book 2 in Wyattsville series. When you read the blurb you can see what the gist of the story is about. Its a brilliant read. What it doesn't show is how this author can get all the loose ends from book 1 and tie them all in, in book 2. All the people in there all connect as you turn the pages.
Another superb book from a fabulous author!
Forced by circumstances beyond his control, Bartholomew Jones made a decision he’d sworn never to make. He and his wife, Ruth moved to Coal Fork, West Virginia and he took a job as a miner following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. In the following years Ruth bore two children, Paul and Jubilee. When tragedy strikes and the children lose both their parents within the space of a few years, Paul and little Jubilee travel to Wyattsville to find the only family they have left, their mother’s estranged sister.
The trip doesn’t quite go to plan and Paul, in the wrong place at the wrong time, ends up in hospital while Jubilee is befriended by Ethan Allen and taken home to Grandma Olivia’s house. It’s good to reconnect with Olivia, Ethan and soft-hearted Detective Jack Mahoney, along with the rest of the characters from Spare Change and catch up with their lives. The new friendship between Ethan and Jubilee is touching, showing the extent of Ethan’s character development since we first met him in Spare Change.
Jubilee’s Journey is an emotive story told with warmth and poignancy. The characters are, mostly, charming and real with relatable characteristics, including a mix of good and not so good traits, and the sense of community in Wyattsville shines out. The story encompasses a range of emotions, sadness, love, kindness and hope and is told from different viewpoints which helps to show the best and sometimes the worst of human nature.
The passages with the first person perspective of a particular character’s thoughts helps to give more of an insight into the depths of their personalities, flaws and strengths. I even found myself feeling (just a little) sorry for Hurt.
Paul and Jubilee have been through a lot but they are strong, kindhearted and very likeable. Ms Crosby has a talent for creating characters you can’t help but empathise with and be drawn into their lives. And even when these same characters misjudge a situation or person, as does happen, they are able to admit when they are wrong. Even though at times it doesn’t appear to be a feel good book, with adversity and misfortune, the conclusion is very satisfactory and the end result is a captivating story of the most important things in life.
So well done, Bette. I'm proud of you.
