at a hard time in her life.This story was heartbreaking on so, so many levels I struggled with the story line and had to push myself through it The other thing that made it a struggle for me was how repetitive parts of the story was, it was like groundhog day in some parts It is a story about forgiveness, rediscovery and making up for past mistakes and honouring the memory of a loved one.ARC

Miss Janie s Girls by Carolyn Brown left me slightly confused The story of two girls, adopted while in high school by Miss Janie who worked at the school, have come home to take care of Miss Janie as she faces death due to Alzheimer s and bone cancer The description of Miss Janie s decline is vivid and heart wrenching Obviously Carolyn Brown has done her research As Miss Janie floats back between 16 years of age and the present time, she seems to be the only sensible one in the book Teresa Miss Janie s Girls by Carolyn Brown left me slightly confused The story of two girls, adopted while in

move back after being away for 10 years and try to rebuild relationships with each other and with Miss Janie The story is very, very good and I did enjoy the premise of the book My only complaint is sometimes the dialogue seems to be stilted The sentences were short and choppy and didn t sound the way the characters would speak Teresa, who has some college education, sometimes used poor grammar Other times, she spoke as if she was educated I m not sure if the bad grammar was sarcasm or if Brown truly did not realize she was doing that If you can look past the choppy dialogue then Miss Janie s Girls is definitely a beautiful story It should be a must read for anyone dealing with the strains of Alzheimer s in a family This is a beautiful book but I m not sure I would call it a romance exactly There is romance in the book for both Teresa and Kayla and Noah, the nephew but any romance is secondary Really, this feltlike a family saga, a drama about healing from really difficult pasts

was detailed and heartbreaking and there were many times I really wanted to take a break because I felt so bad about what all the characters, including Ms Janie, had to go through But I read on, really appreciating how well the author teased emotion out of each character and built a beautiful hopeful world for some lost souls There were some slow parts in the book, borne from all the details but overall, I enjoyed the book I received an early copy from NetGalley Miss Janie s Girls is another of Carolyn Brown s beautiful stories about what constitutes family Teresa and Kayla, who were
