Days Like These by Sue Margolis is a delightful piece of realistic fiction.
It might seem strange to describe a book about a widow dealing with the care of her two grandchildren while her daughter and son-in-law take care of disaster victims in Nicaragua as delightful, but the characters are so well-drawn out and the situations she finds herself in are completely relatable.
It’s easy to get caught up in the drama and find yourself at times shaking your head, but mostly rooting for the characters from the sidelines. They are a great group of people in often difficult situations doing the best they can.
I received this book as an Advanced Reader Copy from First To Read.
