Title: Ashes to Asheville
By: Sarah Dooley
Call #: J Doole.S
This heartfelt and quixotic road trip novel finds Fella and Zany
on their way to Asheville NC in Mama Shannon’s car to release their beloved Mama Lacey’s ashes. They are grieving more than their mother: since each girl was born to a different mom in the couple, the (pre-June 2015) law separates them at Lacey’s death, so they lost their family, too. Sarah Dooley writes beautifully and sometimes hilariously about grief, finding your voice and empathy. Don’t miss this book — a sweet mixture of Thelma and Louise and As I Lay Dying in a novel just right for summer!
