Waiting for Joe by Sandra Birdsell. This is an emotional book by a Canadian author. The characters feel so real. The book is a picture into a time in Joe and Laurie’s life, shortly after their lives start to fall apart. They are on the run in a stolen motorhome, after losing everything when Joe’s business fails and they lose everything.
The book alternates between Joe, Laurie and Joe’s dad Alfred. Not only do you get to see their present, you also glimpse most of their lives up to that point.
The book is a solid read, 5 star, up until the end. I felt the ending left too many questions unanswered. If there was even a one page summary of where everyone is at the end of the story, it would be much more complete.
