Love is the answer. A heartwarming story about family, friendship, diversity, and self-knowledge. In the first years of the new millennium, Star and Thatcher O'Day are seven and eight years old when they are forced to leave the only home they have ever known. Driving cross country from the Deep South to the West Coast with their grandfather, a famous poet they consider strange, sister and brother will have to accustom themselves before long to an eccentric artist who does not look or act anything like they think a grandmother should. Settling into entirely new surroundings, their joys as well as trials and tribulations, combined with the ebb and flow of memorable relationships, become central to the siblings' incitement for change. As each advancing year elicits increasing levels of alarm and acute dangers, their continuing encounters steer them into places and circumstances they never could have imagined.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I enjoyed being taken on this unique journey with Star and Thatcher. I quickly felt I was with them on their travels; it was truly a magical experience. It was really hard to put the book down; eventually, sleep won the battle, but I couldn’t wait to get back to reading. This book became a part of me, I was addicted. The only bad part was when it ended; I didn’t want it to be over. It isn’t often, that a book grabs ahold of me this deeply.
I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to read; if you don’t love to read, The Dream Keepers will quickly introduce you to a newfound love of reading. A strong 5 Boundless Stars from me. I will be looking for more written by Linda Keen.
