Описание

Perfect for fans of Tell Me Three Things and The Astonishing Color of After, A Constellation of Roses is brimming with a magic all its own — lovable and flawed characters, an evocative setting, and friendships to treasure.

Ever since her troubled mother abandoned her, Trix McCabe has preferred to stay on the move.

But when she lands with her long-lost relatives, she finds out that the McCabe women have talents like her own that defy explanation: pies that cure all ills, palm-reading that never misses the mark, knowledge of secrets that have never been told.

Before long, Trix feels like she might finally have found somewhere she belongs. But when her past comes back to haunt her, she’ll have to decide whether to take a chance on this new life...or keep running from the one she’s always known.

    this is a slow building story. it hit too hard for me. I feel relate to Trix in many ways and I got scared reading how she feels and that exactly how I feel right now. her scared of being abandoned and alone had put her in this situation. she has flaw but it hard to not like her. I love the relationship building between all McCabe's woman and a little bit of a magic realism. at the end of this I was shed a tear or two for her to finally find a place to call home.

    I enjoyed how the story unfolded, how it let the personalities grow. Especially good was the logic of actions of the characters: the abandoned teen that falls into the same patterns until true change grows inside her-made possible by her own choice and supported by the ones around her. The motherly Mia slowly growing hope of trust, but also momentarily falling into her own patterns of behaviour created by her hidden fears-to later on release those fears to actions of good. The human touch of all characters was good, it let the personalities have their flaws and STILL be lovable. Also well written about small-town psychology, the "klicks" of people, the pretense of "all is good", and touching also the topic of how the feeling of ahame can be so utterly destructive to both individuals and communities. I was also positively suprised that no unnecessary long"erotic" description occurred. Over all a positive, and in a way calming book-there was no random action thrown in, and the rhythm of events was soothing-also, as it wasn't preachy about the different kinds of prejudice and sexism in society that women and girls face, it still lifted it to the forefront as the weave of the patterns of pain and fear that the characters had often were rooted in just those things. A strong "sisterhood"-book.

    I got this through NetGalley to review. I really loved this book. I did not realize that this is a companion novel to “The Deepest Roots”, however this book stands alone very well on its own. It was sweet and thought-provoking and had some magical realism as well. It's an excellent coming of age story and has some wonderful themes about friendship and family.Trix McCabe is struggling to survive on her own after her mother abandons her. She is dodging social services and making a living via her uncanny ability to steal things and not get caught. Then someone turns her in and social services is involved again, this time they place her with her Aunt...family she didn’t even know she had. As Trix starts to try and make a living with the McCabe family she learns secrets about her past and realizes that this may be just the fresh start she needs to turn things around.I really loved this story, it grabbed me right from the beginning and was impossible to put down. It was weird how similar this book was to “Midnight at the Blackbird Cafe” which I just finished the week before I read this. Both books have magic pie, a small town setting, and themes of family, friendship, love, and overcoming hardship.This book is humorous, heartbreaking, and hopeful all at the same time. Trix is a smart girl with a tough past and she is really trying to make her new situation work but old habits die hard. My heart broke for her over and over. I enjoyed watching Trix put everything back together in her life and also enjoyed the small elements of magical realism throughout the story.There is a lot about friendship, family, coming of age, and getting over a tough past in this book. The book is beautifully written and very hard to put down.Overall I really loved this book and plan on going back to pick up Asebedo’s first novel as well. I would recommend to those who enjoy coming of age type contemporary fiction with some elements of magical realism.
