Book by Fowler, Therese
I had read Z, the story of Zelda Fitzgerald, the wondrous book written by Therese Anne Fowler, and was so bowled over by it that I wanted to read this book, her first.
It was nothing like the writing of Z. It seems the author just wanted to put all her ideas into this one book. It was sort of a "formula" book, like Nicholas Sparks. It ends up having some good moments and good writing, but there is a lot of rhetoric that could have been left out..How about an editor? I didn't like the many so-called "letters"..letters from her mother, letters to various people for "the future", etc. I thought those were unnecessary and boring.
This book is about making wrong choices..and that happened a lot, with Meg, with her daughter, Savannah. There were too many thingss going on in this book, Meg her job, her relationship with her husband, with Carson..and Susanna's foibles, her indiscretions Meg's illness. Somehow the author fit all this together, and made it work, but often the story lagged. Some things were left hanging, like "What about poor Brian?" Did she write one of those letters to him? The whole premise of her illness, and its progression was just too sad, and the ending. Good writing at times though.
However, I didn't have a clue that it would be so sad.
I loved so many things about the book, mostly how Therese took the reader from 'commercial' fiction to 'literary' fiction (I hate labels but need one or the post will be forever!) The theme's were deep, I am grateful for the courageous stand, Therese took with her first novel.

"Fiction is where you get to read the truth" holds true for this novel. Deep Spiritual truths like you can't always control what happens to you, but you can control how your respond. The brutal nature of regrets in this novel, make one consider them in your own life. Not happy, is not happy-no matter the good intentions behind the decision.

I love the double entendre with the journals, regrets, money...... I have quite a few 'favorite lines' "if only, were there sadder words than these" was one, and of the moon: "Holy Mother's night light her mother had once told her...."

Other reviewers said it was 'heart breaking' I understand, but Therese's craft as as writer has more hope, more faith, more love than heartbreak--truly a gift.

This will be a book I re-read and that rarely happens.
This was a gift. She said it was an okay read.
A painful choice at a very young age sets into motion the futures of Meg Powell and all of those closest to her. Meg's decision poses a question we must then ask ourselves. What are we willing to do for love, out of a sense of obligation and responsibility? Can we really follow our heads instead of our hearts and still be happy?

Therese Fowler brings to us into the world of the Florida citrus growers and of the haves and the have-nots through her beautifully rendered imagery, and we understand the impact that a single choice can make. Life doesn't ever go as planned and when Meg is confronted with a situation where there is no good choice to be made, she's forced to re-examine all of her decisions.

While Meg struggles to come to terms with the hardest reality any human being can face, Savannah, her only child is courting danger. Savannah is a personable, intelligent teenager who believes she's capable of handling far more than her limited experience will really allow. Meg must come to terms with her own problems, and we watch helplessly as Savannah naively slips into a situation she's unequipped to handle.

The book is masterfully plotted, the characters are genuine and the story moves quickly. The author has managed to subtly weave literary imagery and the larger questions about parents and children, marriage, love, responsibility, regret, life and death into this fast moving story, without slowing down a thing.

Souvenir is heartbreaking and as we follow the characters, each with his or her story, we're never sure what will happen next. As each question is answered, each challenge resolved we recognize that the stories end in the only way they ever could.

This is a wonderful book, the writing is superb and the story will have you thinking, long after you read the final page.
I ordered this book for a gift. I already read the story and wanted to give a copy to my daughter. Thank you for the nice price and quick receipt.

I have just finished reading this wonderful page-turner from Therese Fowler. Great characterization, well worth every penny, and good to the last drop. A must-read.

This book was my Book Club's choice for the month. I read the reviews and looked forward to reading it. I found it was a little slow in the beginning. It did not offer a strong desire to continue but I pushed on. Really glad I finished this book as it had a wonderful finish. I felt the emotions of all the characters and could truly follow their journey to the heart breaking but understandable ending .
I read this book for a book club. It was one of the more enjoyable picks. We found very little wrong with it as a group and it gave for good discussion. I would read it again and future books from the author.
