Fixing Delilah

Fixing Delilah Hannaford is a story about family. Delilah’s family has always had secrets her mother refuses to tell. That is until her grandmother dies and Delilah is dragged from her home in Pennsylvania up to Vermont. Coming home to the house of her childhood has a toll on her mother as well, who spends most of the days there figuring out how soon they can sell the house and she can get away from the memory of her sister Stephanie who died there when she was only nineteen. When Delilah finds her Aunt Stephanie’s diary she slowly comes to understand the importance of family, and that everything may not be what it seems. I would defiantly recommend this book, I absolutely loved it. The relationships between the family members was very real and at some points very sad, but that really only added to the charm of the book, and the message. That family is not something to throw away but to cherish, because you never know when they might leave you, or what kind of questions they will leave behind.
