I just finished up the audio book Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon. I had told you that I was on an Amy Harmon kick and was hoping to listen to all of her books. That had me listening to this one.
This book was what I might classify more of a romance than what I usually read but a nice easy romance..and no sex scenes. It was a great, easy, light read that I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s a story of loss, coming of age, and finding yourself. All topics I love to read about. I could easily put myself in the shoes of the main character and believe it was me living the life. Those are my favorite kinds of books!!
Here’s what Amazon had to say:“When Josie Jensen, an awkward thirteen-year-old musical prodigy crashes headlong into new-comer Samuel Yates, an eighteen-year-old Navajo boy full of anger and confusion, an unlikely friendship blooms. Josie teaches Samuel about words, music and friendship, and along the way finds a kindred spirit. Upon graduation, Samuel abandons the sleepy, small town in search of a future and a life, leaving his young mentor behind. Many years go by and Samuel returns, finding his old friend in need of the very things she offered him years before. Their roles reversed, Samuel teaches Josie about life, love, and letting go. Deeply romantic and poignant, Running Barefoot is the story of a small town girl and a Native American boy, the ties that bind them to their homes and families, and the love that gives them wings.”
Amazon readers gave the book 4.7 stars. I think I’d agree. I really love the writing style of this author. Happily I have a few more books of hers to read…and hopefully she’s writing more!!
