A beautiful story of love and loss, Tell the Wolves I’m Home left me both crying and rejoicing along with the characters. Author Carol Rifka Brunt handles death and dying in the most sensitive and wonderful manner imaginable.
When 14-year-old June Elbus loses her beloved Uncle Finn, her entire world comes crashing down. Never beautiful, popular, or gifted like her older sister, June is now an outcast without a friend in the world. It is only when a mysterious stranger enters her life that she begins to understand the true power of love.
Toby is a wiry Englishman with a curious past and an equally deep love for Finn. He reaches out to June and the two bond over the loss of the man so extraordinarily special to each of them. Slowly, they learn how pieces of Finn live on in the hearts of everyone he influenced.
Reading this book, I was struck by the author’s incredible skill in describing and evoking emotion. I was inspired to reflect on the relationships in my life and the impact we have on one another as humans. If you have ever experienced love and loss, this book is for you.
