Lara’s Story by Diane Merrill Wigginton 5 Stars
An enchanting story that begins in Ireland in 1846. It is inspiring, emotional, and full of love and determination about what it takes to overcome hardship and be the best you can be no matter what life throws at you. It is well-written and you feel as if you really know the characters. The author is one of my favorites and her books are all difficult to put down. At the end are historical facts relating to the story, I love that. It is especially interesting to me since my great grandparents came to the US during this time from Ireland. I highly recommend the book.
