Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “The Bluebell Girls” by Barbara Josselsohn, Bookouture, September 25, 2020
Barbara Josselsohn, the author of “The Bluebell Girls” has written a memorable, heartwarming, enjoyable and thought-provoking novel. The genres for this book are Family Fiction, Fiction, Women’s Fiction and Romance. The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events. The story takes place in Lake Summers. The author describes her colorful and dramatic characters as complex, complicated, and quirky. Of course there is a loveable dog in this story. There are three generations of women in this delightful story.
I love the way Barbara Josselsohn, vividly describes the interaction and storytelling of the characters, and the details as the blue bell flowers and the carefree attitudes.
Jenna is recently divorced and comes back to her mother, Sweet’s home with her daughter Sophie and the family dog. Jenna’s sister has been concerned about Sweet’s health and memory. Jenna feels that perhaps this will be a good start for Sophie and herself to make a new life. This way Jenna can keep an eye on her Sweet as well.
Sweet bonds with her grand-daughter with her care-free ways, and stories of love. Jenna isn’t quite sure if they are real or not, but Sophie is obsessed with listening to them.
It seems the new Vet in the town is one of Jenna’s former neighbors, who has also come back to Lake Summers. He is also conflicted about many things.
This is an amazing novel of family, friendships, neighbors, love and hope that I would highly recommend. Happy Reading!
