And so the three generations of women search for a way to save the place that saved them all, finding in the process a way back to themselves and each other in The Firelight Girls, Kaya McLaren's novel of love and loss, heartbreak and healing.
If I could use just one word to describe this book it would be WOW! This story truly touched my heart. I absolutely loved these ladies. They are each going through their own personal confilcts, but with the help of each other and their amazing friendship they are able to find their way again. There were several moments were I found myself thinking back to my own camp days and I even remembered the words to some of the songs they sang. I hope when I am older sitting around with my friends, I have as fun as these ladies. Their scavenger hunt had me crying with laughter! This is a must read for anyone who honors true friendship. This book will make you want to call your girlfirends and get together for s'mores!
