The Book of Polly by Kathy Hepinstall


Willow has an older mother and never knew her father.  Willow is paranoid that her mother is going to die soon because of her smoking, drinking, and her age.  Polly became pregnant at 50 years of age.

Willow wants to know about her mother's life before she married her father who passed away before Willow was born.  Willow also wants to know the secret her mother won't reveal about something that happened in Louisiana.

Willow makes it her mission to find out the secret as she continues worrying about her mother and her longevity.  Willow is a precocious, rule-following child.   I really enjoyed Willow for her spunk.  I enjoyed Polly because she was fearless and didn't really care what anyone thought of her.

THE BOOK OF POLLY made me laugh out loud.  I loved Willow and Polly and loved their relationship even though it is a strained one because Willow is always challenging her mother and Polly is always manipulating Willow.

THE BOOK OF POLLY was a delightful read because of the funny circumstances and situations the characters got themselves in.   


All of the characters were comical and lovable.  You will be laughing as well as crying but mostly laughing. 

If you need a break from murders and serious story lines, THE BOOK OF POLLY fits the bill. 

 I just loved this book.  ENJOY!!  5/5

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
