Review: The Warmest December

The Warmest December by Bernice L. McFadden isn’t a happy read but it’s an important one.

Beautifully written, this tale takes you through a young woman’s last months with her father. Her earlier life is told in flashbacks, each one slightly worse than the last. The emotional conflict she feels over losing this man is vivid and authentic. It’s a brilliantly done book.

For all that the subject matter is difficult and painful, it’s not a depressing read. It engages and it heals. It is one of the best books I believe I’ve read this year and I’ve read some very good ones.
