The only negative I can sayis that I didn't read this book soonerMy friend brought me her copy I took it home and it got lost in the shuffle In fact months later she asked if I'd read it and I said I did't have it lol Whilst cleaning out dust bunnies under my bedI found it From there it sat on my nighstand for a few months I just had a feeling it was going to be sappy and light I was wrong Sandra Kring is a writer She writes in a way that captures you immediately and refuses to let goeven after you've finished and closed the book Her portrayal of the charactors makes you swear you know each and everyone personally You can almost smell them This is a story that will make you laugh It will also maybe make your eyes brim with tears It will make you feel anger and angst It will roll you up in a ball so tight you can't breathe It might make you take a look at your own situation It's a story about love through the wisdom and eyes of a child It will teach you what is important and how forgiveness can help you to move forward in life Highly recommended 45 stars

I really like this author Each of her books is told from the vantage point of a child who is real and wise and innocent and suffering because of choices those who love her have made Lucy is the main character in this one and the thing I love about her the most is that she isn't afraid to feel deeply both the high's and low's of life

Thank You for All ThingsNd the grace of forgiveness that the adults around her will need help in remembering if their family is ever to find peace and embrace the future By turns heart wrenching and heart mending Thank You for All Things is a powerful and poignant novel by a brilliant storyteller who illustrates that when it comes to matters of family and love often it is the innocent who force others to confront their darkest secre. 45SECOND book read by Sandra Kring in 30 days and I really can't say enough about her writing of this bookIt’s a story about family and it’s a story about secrets lies betrayals and cycles of grief It’s also a story about change giving oneself the permission to move on and regaining the ability to love and trustThe narrator is Lucy an 11year old with the “measly” I of 144 the average American has an I of 98 according to Google Her twin brother Milo is an absolute genius with an I of 180 Lucy a “people reader” with a serious interest in psychology lives in Chicago with her twin her mother Tess also a Twin and Tess’s mother who everyone affectively calls “Oma” Oma probably my favorite character is a New Age guru who believes strongly in natural healing patience and the spirits — and she will rely upon these strengths when the McGowan clan is called home to Timber Falls Wisconsin to care for Sam the dying father of Tess and her twin Clay and ex husband of OmaWisconsin is where all secrets begin to unravelLucy and Milo have been raised by their mother with absolutely no knowledge of their father his story or where he is now — only that he plays no role in their life Lucy is far too bright to accept this as she secretly explores her mother’s childhood and teenage years through stolen glances at Tess’s old journals Reading Lucy finds out far than she could have ever imagined about her grandfather Kring is a fantastic writer with an impeccable sense of detail atmosphere and environment and the shifts between “past” and “present” in this novel are seamless One moment I was peering over Lucy’s head at her mother’s laptop reading about all of the feelings Tess won’t acknowledge to anyone but herself The next moment I was riding along on Milo’s bike Feynman barking along next to me pedaling as fast as I can to feel like I’m finally “normal” and a part of something that for once doesn’t make me a total outsider Seconds later I’m watching a bloody fight between Sam and Oma that happened some 15 years earlier my mouth open in silent rage and horrorFor as great as this book was — and it was great — don’t get me wrong it was pretty disturbing By the time I reached the final chapters where so much of the past comes bubbling up and spills out all at once my heart was pounding so hard I had to actually get a bottle of water and put the book down for a few minutes I felt incredibly sad for Oma Tess Milo and Lucy and sad for Tess’s boyfriend Peter too that he wants so badly to love someone so closed off to love The other characters in the story — Maude Tuttle Marie Mitzy — are all so loveable too even if not in a “conventional” way To say you feel as though you know each of them is an understatement
