The Arrivals: Book Review and Giveaway



About The Book:

It's early summer when Ginny and William's peaceful life in Vermont comes to an abrupt halt.

First, their daughter Lillian arrives, with her two children in tow, to escape her crumbling marriage. Next, their son Stephen and his pregnant wife Jane show up for a weekend visit, which extends indefinitely when Jane ends up on bed rest. When their youngest daughter Rachel appears, fleeing her difficult life in New York, Ginny and William find themselves consumed again by the chaos of parenthood - only this time around, their children are facing adult problems. 

By summer's end, the family gains new ideas of loyalty and responsibility, exposing the challenges of surviving the modern family - and the old adage, once a parent, always a parent, has never rung so true



About The Author:

She received a master's degree in English literature from New York University. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and their three children. The Arrivals is her first novel.

My Review:

I loved this novel! What an amazing debut writing from Meg Mitchell Moore. With a quick pace, wonderful story lines involving the drama that comes from being a family, and delightful and lovable characters, I quickly read The Arrivals with great anticipation. I was not disappointed and I highly recommend this wonderful new author. I cannot wait to read more of Moore's work in the future.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
