Small Bones by Vicki Grant
There’s nothing to stop a small person from dreaming big.
Dot, whose name reflects her stature, has always had big dreams—she wants to be a dress designer like Mary Quant—but her dreams have to be put on hold while she searches for the truth about her parents. She gets a job as a seamstress at a lakeside resort in rural Ontario and falls hard for Eddie, a charming local boy who is equal parts helpful and distracting as Dot investigates her past. Searching for answers to questions about her birth, Dot learns more than she ever wanted to about the terrible effects of war, the legacy of deceit—and the enduring nature of love.
I got an ARC of Small Bones awhile ago but I misplaced it. As soon as I found it I picked it up and read it. I am so happy that I finally found it and read it because it was good.
I’m not exactly sure why, but for some reason I wasn’t expecting much from this book. I honestly have no idea why that is. Maybe that is why I liked it as much as I did. When I first finished it I gave it four stars, but as I started writing this review, I dropped it down to three.
It was a fast read because I didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to know who Dots parents were and what happened the night she was born. I also loved Eddie. He was really funny and super adorable.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and would love to read more by this author.
