Book Review: Leaves by Michael Baron
Author: Michael Baron
Publisher: The Story Plant
Paperback 330 pages
The story welcomes the reader immediately to Oldham, CT a small town rich in heritage and full of modern characters with modern day emotions and problems. The Gold family has been part of the town for more than 3 decades and their Inn a gathering place for those who seek solace in the changing of the leaves.
But this year is different, filled instead with grief, loss, and changes. The story is an emotionally packed depiction of the Gold siblings and how each is dealing with change. They are each challenged in new ways to make life different and the author does a wonderful job of pulling the reader into the hearts of each of the characters and the family dynamics so you won't want to leave.
Romance, drama, tensions, and unforgettable characters who love and long to be loved will keep you reading and wanting more. You will be part of the grand Gold Halloween Party minus the costume, unless you become so engaged you dress up too. We won't tell. The story is that inviting and that engaging.
