The Stars at Oktober Bend

The Stars at Oktober Bend is a wonderfully told tale of two damaged young people (Alice and Manny).

Follow Alice,(who has hair as red as fire, skin as pale as bone and a brain injury due to an assault) as she finds Manny,(who was once a child soldier and has now lost his whole family) as they meet through a poem which is written by Alice but found by Manny.As a result of them meeting, they find the roots of their love.

I really liked how the idea of the book and the descriptions as you are able to imagine it.However,I would have enjoyed it even more if the pace of the book was faster.

Like this book?Then read Layla, Queen of Hearts, another wonderfully written book by Glenda Millard.
