Summer Reads – The House of Light

Books to be swept away with this summer…

There are SO MANY great books around at the moment and so I’d like to share a few that I think are particularly exciting.  I’m not going to plop them all together in one post but give each the opportunity to shine in it’s own right…

Hold on to your hats… here are my summer 2019 recommendations.

The House of Light by Julia Green

Recommended for Middle Grade (9+) & above…

Here’s the synopsis:

Its always just been Bonnie and Granda, living off the land, keeping to themselves and out of trouble.  Until one day, Bonnie goes scavenging on the beach and finds a battered rowing boat, and a bare-footed boy.  He’s cold, hungry, and in need of shelter.  Bonnie knows it’s a crime to help this stranger boy, but she can’t leave him for the border guards to find.

The longer she cares for the boy, who has travelled across oceans for anew beginning, the more Bonnie longs for her own freedom.  Perhaps it’s time toe scape the life she has always known, to move out of the darkness, and set sail for the house of light…
