Who am I?
Why did Susan love this book?
This was one of the most unusual books I’ve read, about two women after the war in England who embark on an adventure to find an elusive golden beetle. The women are nothing alike, are thrown together by accident, don’t even like each other in the beginning, but become the very best of friends.
One is running from something, and one has nothing to run from. Both characters are so believable, even though they are incredibly unique, and their blossoming friendship is lovely to watch. The story is funny and sad and heartwarming and heartbreaking and like nothing you’ve read before.
