Where All Light Tends to Go - David Joy

5 Stars  #WhereAllLightTendstoGo  @PenguinPBks  @DavidJoy_author

My family is from that area of the country so I was amazed at how the author really brought me back to that area. And yes, he did a great job. There are so many places a person can go and not be found for decades. I could understand Jacob's frustration and how he so bad wanted so much more for Maggie.

This was a beautiful book about love, frustration, bullying, seeing roads and thinking they lead nowhere for you. It's good, but it's also sad. I'm sure somewhere it's also true. Unfortunately. I enjoyed reading about Jacob and cheering for him and Maggie. Hoping that someday they would find that road that leads them out of that holler and on to a successful life.

Thank you Penguin Putnam and Net Galley for providing me a free e-galley and allowing me to read this beautiful and sad story in exchange for an honest review. I definitely enjoyed it and would recommend this book to others who love stories about humanity in all its phases.
