After Genevieve: The Pathway Home
Rachel Menin’s writing reminds me of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s. Both writers’ work is marked by an engaging narrative voice; strong sense of place; compelling and tightly woven narrative; and unforgettable, endearing characters. And Lainey Traynor—the headstrong, angry, plucky young protagonist of After Genevieve—is a match for Anne Shirley of Anne of Green Gables. After Genevieve is a page-turner for readers of all ages. It addresses serious issues of aging, death, abandonment, adoption, parenting (and grandparenting), and coming-of-age . . . at any age. Most of all, After Genevieve is a grace-filled lesson in hard-won friendship, love, and loyalty. Let’s just say it’s a classic!
