Sunday's are Book Club Sunday's on Createyou86.
Welcome to the first post of our second Createyou86 Book Club book: The Truth About Love and Lightning
Part 1: pgs 1-75
The Twister Synopsis
The book opens up talking about the family, and how the twin girls are born blind, and the father runs away with the girls tutor. Section 1 opens in April of 2010, and a twister ensues. The girls Bennie,Trudy, Gretchen, and their mother Annika end up underground because the twins can sense changing weather. When they come back up after the tornado the old oak tree at the end of the driveway has uprooted, the power lines are not working, and it will most likely be days or weeks before the power is restored. At this point in the story the 4th daughter Abby is fighting with her long time boyfriend Nate about how he won't commit to the relationship or marry her. She decides that they should take some time apart, and kicks him out of the house. Abby promptly finds out that she is pregnant, and does not immediately tell Nate. She becomes worried that she cannot get ahold of her mother or sisters, and instead she chooses to take the time apart to go see her mother, and sisters, and unload the Information on them. During the time it takes for Abby to arrive home her sister Gretchen makes an amazing discovery. The walnut orchard which was previously barren has seemingly rained down walnuts while the twister was happening. She also finds an older man who was seemingly hurt in the storm. He doesn't know who he is, but Gretchen sees, and feels Sam an old flame who supposedly died doing work in Africa in him. She helps him to the house where they let him rest, and somehow the power comes back on in the home even though it clearly shouldn't be. They said that when Sam cried the sky cried with him. His father was a Shaman. Abby finally arrives home, and let's her secret out. Her mother, and sisters are very excited for her, but they also know that she is scared as well.
I hope you are enjoying the book so far. Again this book was found at The Dollar Tree, but Createyou86 is in no way affiliated with The Dollar Tree. The Dollar Tree did not pay for this book. All opinions are honest, and my own.
⭐⭐I found the first part of this book a bit scattered, and hard to get through, but I am looking forward to getting further into the story. Check back next week for part 2!
