DAY BY DAY
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
Parr's cozy writing style will help all readers, no matter what their situation in life, to identify with the characters in this novel. Grandparents raising grandchildren is a timely and relevant topic, and Parr explores the subject in a sympathetic manner. There's also a delicious recipe at the end of the book that adds exactly the right touch.
Three women all find themselves in a similar situation. Barbara's son, a single father, is murdered, leaving the care of twin granddaughters to Barbara and her husband. Ginger's daughter left her son on Ginger's doorstep when she left to marry someone whose wealthy lifestyle and relatives wouldn't approve of the boy. And Judy's daughter, long addicted to drugs, cannot care for her son. The women forge a bond of support and encourage each other during the difficult changes that result from their new roles in life.
