“Where the Forest Meets the Stars” is a love story of the most unique proportions. Two wounded adults and an extremely intelligent child are drawn together in a fresh and fanciful story that will have you cheering for the geeks. This is not a sci-fi book but a child’s attempt to deal with a life that is far too painful for her young years.
Glenda Vanderah has created characters that are fully developed and interact flawlessly as participants in this fast moving story. They fuss and struggle and learn to love each other with ferocity in the midst of trying to ascertain the truth of the youngsters travail. This is a unique story and in all the thousands of books I’ve read, there’s not been anything else like it. This is special and you’ll be effected. If there were a second volume, I’d be happy to reconnect with these folks.
The story is dialogue driven and the dialogue is magical. I laughed out loud many times as the pages flew by. There are no issues with gratuitous violence or sexual content and just a few f-bombs that were totally unnecessary. In fact, they were the only expletives on one page; absurd. That issue aside, this book is worth every one of those 5* and then some. Bravo, Ms. Vanderah!
