The Messenger (mini review)

Finished The Messenger by Carol Lynch Williams. I received a copy for review. 

First, if it’s not too late, don’t read the synopsis for this. It contains a major spoiler. (Publishers, if we don’t learn something for literally over a hundred pages, don’t tell us ahead of time!)

The women in the Messenger family get a Gift on their fifteenth birthdays. For example, Evie’s aunt has a way with cooking that’s made her rich. Evie doesn’t know what hers will be but she’s excited…

This is a really hard book to review without discussing the gift and the other things relating to it. But suffice to say that this is a smart, fun-and-heartbreaking novel. It’s perfect for cool fall nights.
