Review: Wind Chime Cafe by Sophie



This book is a lot of things, a touching love story, two characters struggling with PTSD and a woman trying to overcome abandonment issues. It is also a story of a small and charming community on Heron Island with its loveable, sometimes quirky, but unforgettable inhabitants. The tender love story between Will and Annie was so nice to read, I was rooting for them the whole time. I am an animal lover so I thought that dogs as characters in the book was a nice touch to the story. This book dealt with some really tough issues such as PTSD and school shootings, Sophie Moss wrote about them in a respectful and thoughtful manner.  I  like books with a small town, close-knit community theme and this book had that. The character of Taylor, Annie's daughter, was so well-developed, the trauma that Taylor went through and the coping skills she used as a result were so well written,  you can tell this author really did her research and I commend her for that. Sophie Moss, you have created a community and a set of characters that I look forward to reading more about in the future, please write many more Wind Chime novels!

I gave this book 4.5 stars!
