Francesca Of Lost Nation Review & *Giveaway*

Francesca Of Lost Nation by Lucinda Sue Crosby

About The Book:
Award Winner: Hollywood Book Festival Honorable Mention - Francesca of Lost Nation is the story of a 59-year old woman and her granddaughter, Sarah, during the summer of 1947 in Lost Nation, Iowa. Together, these best friends beard an arsonist in his den, conquer the skies and demonstrate to one another the greatest truth about love. Join Lucinda Sue and all the quirky characters of Lost Nation, Iowa and discover one terrific read!

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading this book. I love the relationship between the grandmother and granddaughter. It warms my heart and reminds me of myself and my own grandmothers. Plus, besides good cuddly family relationships, there is drama and mystery, which is kind of unexpected, and makes the book all the more exciting. This book was very hard to put down once I started it, and the author is an amazing storyteller! This is a great book to cuddle with on a cold winter's night!
