The Stars at Oktober Bend

I have just finished The Stars at Oktober Bend and have that lovely warm feeling from reading an uplifting ending full of hope for the future.

After reading the first chapter, I wasn't convinced that I was going to like this book. I found the unusual syntax off-putting and didn't expect to enjoy the poetry - but I did! It slowed down the reading experience and helped me to appreciate the use of language in the rest of the novel.

It wasn't long before I was hooked on the story of Alice and Manny, Joey, Tilda and Gram. I enjoyed the gentle romance, fretted at every threat of harm and shivered with pleasure when her words gave her thoughts flight.
