The Paragraph Ranch Book Review

I was sent a copy of "The Paragraph Ranch" hoping I would publish a review, all opinions are 100% my own.

This book is about going home again, the home you fought to leave.  Where duty overcomes your personal wants and goals. Having to do the right thing regardless of your plans, dreams or emotions.

The Paragraph Ranch
When Dee's mother is injured in a mysterious car wreck, Dee is forced to cancel her summer plans and care for her mother on a farm in the panhandle of Texas.   
Struggle with Dee as she survives the summer living on the farm she fought to 
leave and making decisions to do what is best for her mother.   See how she incorporates her adult self into the life she couldn't wait to leave as a young girl.

This book did touch me as I had to do something very similar, as I know so many others have.  I too grew up in Texas but in a small dusty west Texas town.  I fought to leave that town and make my mark in the world but had to return to care for my Mother when she developed Alzheimer's.  
Seeing how the character Dee made the best of the challenge and made her mark in the community, helped me find closure.  It made me think about finding your place but not losing your inner soul in any situation.  

Maybe not everyone will see and feel what I did from reading the book but either way it's a heartwarming story and just a great read.
