The Imperfect Art of Caring (Hardback)Jessica Ryn (author)
- Coming soon
Violet Strong is strong by name but not by nature, or so she thinks. She listens but never talks about herself. She's friendly but doesn't have many real friends. She's become good at keeping people at a distance ever since she left home at eighteen and never looked back.
But when Violet is forced to return home to care for her estranged mother Glenys, she quickly finds out that life as a carer isn't easy. Feeling overwhelmed, she's forced to turn to the other local carers, including childhood friend Adam, for help. Although returning home still feels like a mistake, maybe it will help Violet right some wrongs. After all, she can't keep running from her past forever, and in learning to look after others, perhaps Violet can start to finally love herself.
