Guest Review: A Good Home, a Memoir by Cynthia Reyes

Title: A Good Home: A Memoir by Cynthia Reyes
Publisher: BPS Books (May 6, 2013)
A Good Home describes the author’s early life in rural Jamaica, her move to urban North America, and her trips back home.

I, a non-bookworm, read Cynthia Reyes' just-released book,
“A Good Home” and found it so riveting and so totally interesting,
it was difficult to put down once I turned a chapter.

Her down-to-earth style of writing is a boon to people who are
not avid book readers but are selective in their choice of books,
fiction or otherwise. I highly recommend “A Good Home” for
entertainment and for feeling good.

It is all about family, struggles, life-changes and determination.
Many readers can relate to the author’s experiences.

ISounds like a great book.

I appreciate the note about being selective in one's reading. As someone who is a bookworm I actually find that I must be extra selective as there are too many good books to get to.
