Finding Me by Kathryn Cushman
How would you react if you found out you’d been lied to your entire life? Would you run away and bury your head in the sand or dig deeper to discover the whole truth?
This is exactly what Kelli Huddleston faces upon her father’s death in Kathryn Cushman’s newest novel, Finding Me.
Kelli uncovers photographs of her father and another family while cleaning out his papers. Digging further, she finds newspaper clippings of a boating accident killing a young father and his infant daughter.
Was the story he told her of a fire claiming her mother and siblings total fiction?
Armed with a picture and the name of a town in Tennessee, Kelli jumps in her car and heads across the country to find herself and the family she thought died long ago.
But will it cost her everything?
Finding Me is a heartfelt story of forgiveness and redemption. Kelli must journey through many emotions to get to the other side and find herself.
Kathryn Cushman does an awesome job setting this story up. I instantly liked Kelli and wanted her to succeed in finding out the truth. The rest of the characters were also well-rounded. I loved Kenmore as he became her confidant. Miss Birdyshaw was a fun character, adding humor throughout. I felt the story started off a bit slow, but I soon found it tough to put down!
I give Finding Me four out of five stars.
Come and join Kelli on her journey of discovering what she lost, but more importantly what she finds as the story ends!
You will be blessed.
