Road to Yesterday by Greta Cribbs
She did it again…She wiped me out when I read Amelia’s Children and in this one she completely shattered me. I’ve decided that if I was asked which author Id most like to meet it would be Greta Cribbs…I would love to shake the hand of the author that has one of the most creative writing styles I’ve ever experienced. How she comes up with this stuff baffles me. The old saying “you can’t make this stuff up”? Well I’m thinking she had to have made it up because believing in what happened in this story would put me over the edge, kind of in a good way because I love time travel stories.
These four siblings were brought to life in this story. I felt like they were real people, the way they interacted and went off on tangents in their conversations that shouldn’t have made any sense in their predicament, yet did! There was so much content fit into what I consider a short novel and what I loved most was, I never felt lost. She had a way in her writing that kept me from never having to go back and reread anything. I also loved how I couldn’t put it down, I carried my kindle while walking so I could keep reading. I loved how I felt every emotion I think she intended me to feel. I laughed, I cried (oh did I cry), i scratched my head while trying to figure out what was gonna happen next, and i found myself asking the same questions they were..What would I do?
To go off subject, or as I described the tangents above I have to say that her description “a giant accordion playing its workday song along I-75”, was brilliant.
I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!!
