JUNE by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It was a joy getting to live inside this book for a few days, and one that will stay with me after finishing. JUNE is a beautifully written family saga and love story – many love stories, actually. It’s told in dual time periods, beginning in the present, when Cassie learns she’s to inherit the fortune of famous 50s movie star Jack Montgomery. But why? The story flows back and forth between the present and 1955, the year Hollywood descended on the tiny town of St. Jude, Ohio. Did Cassie’s grandmother June and Jack meet all those years ago? Many surprising twists in this book, that even when I thought I had something figured out, there was so much more hidden underneath. Loved the richly-drawn characters. Very enjoyable. 5 stars!
