What I read: Provenance by Carla Laureano
Why I picked it up: Someone I follow on Goodreads read and love it.
How I read it: On audio at 2x while walking, mowing, and driving.
What it’s about: Kendall grew up in foster care and at 18 set out in the world on her own to make something of her life, which she did. She apprenticed under a great interior designer and ended up starting her own business. Now she finds out she’s inherited a plot of land and 5 houses from her grandmother, who she never even remembers meeting. It’s set in small town Colorado and made me want to go live in the new village they’ve designed!!
What I liked: The mayor was a delight!! The way he was true to himself and his faith was really a great read. I also love that he gets his own great family story.
What I disliked: Kendall ended up in foster care because the computer system to communicate lost children was defunct. If society had done a better job, she wouldn’t have had the suffering she did. That made me sad because I know it’s true life for so many.
Genre: Christian romance, foster care, adoption.
Rating & Recommendation: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and definitely!!
