Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia

Synopsis:

He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him-just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She’s the same as a million other girls-certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

My Thoughts:

What a great book!  By far one of my favorites that I’ve read this year.  Love, Tragedy, Comedy, Action… you get everything from this book.  I couldn’t put it down it was so good.  There were moments in this book that made me laugh out loud and other moments that moved me to tears.  This book really touched my heart and stayed with me long after finishing the last page.  I can’t wait until “Return to Poughkeepsie” is released.  This is a book that I highly recommend!!!
