A Different Blue by Amy Harmon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm a fan of Amy Harmon. I read her title A slow Dance in Purgatory before A different Blue and she already won me over with that one. Amy's writing is lyrical and flows so well no matter what she writes, it seems.
A Different Blue intrigued me not only because I had read another title from this author, but because the premise sounded great. I have always been drawn to Native American stories, and this one was no exception.
I loved the way Ms. Harmon infused legend into the book. Blue was such a strong heroine. I love a girl that knows what she wants, and Blue fits that mold. Even though she has weaknesses, she strives to overcome them. She wants better for her life and once a decision is made, that's it. She's full boar behind it.
I loved Wilson, too, although I wanted to smack him toward the end of the book, lol. I will not be giving away any spoilers because this book is beautiful from the first page till the last and should be experienced without any preconceived notions in my opinion.
I will say that the struggles Blue faces may be different than mine, but I connected to her fight to attain what she wanted out of life. I think we all feel as though we are different. It is only when we accept ourselves for who we are that we can really shine as a person, and Blue's story is such a wonderful example of overcoming and redemption.
This book is packed with emotional experiences from joy to anger to sadness, I felt it with Blue. She is one of my favorite contemporary heroines, and I am so glad I took a chance to read outside my preferred genre. This is an exceptional book from an exceptional author.
Bravo Amy Harmon. I can't wait to read your next brilliant novel!
