Librarian Laura’s Review of Where the Blue Sky Begins
Where the Blue Sky Begins is a heartwarming, touching, emotional story of two people who are total opposites, and the most unlikely pair to become friends or to rely on one another, and they are sure to win your heart as you read their story. Eric Larson comes to small town Montana from the big city to help his Uncle Jack in their local financial office, and while he’s there, he ends up staying in a modest house next to one eccentric Eunice Parker. As it turns out, Eunice is the same woman who was riding a scooter on the road, causing Eric to swerve to miss her in his bright blue Jeep on his way into town. Eric is unprepared for Eunice’s quick wit, purple crocs, and the empathy he will feel for her loneliness. Soon, he finds himself helping Eunice and it becomes clear that both Eric and Eunice need each other more than they could ever realize. This is a feel-good story of small town kindness and a true example of people selflessly taking care of others. There is a little twist revealed at the end that had me in tears. The story is well-written and its the perfect book to slow down the pace, experience some joy, and a reminder to appreciate what you have in life, especially the wonderful people.
