The Book that Matters Most really appealed to me because it is about a book club, and I belong to a book club. Each member of the book club chooses a book that the club will read in the coming year, based on the theme chosen. The title of the book, "The Book That Matters Most," is the theme for the year that Ava is asked to join the club. The book she chooses ends up not being easily available, which leads Ava on a journey while she is also going through a divorce. Meanwhile, her daughter is going through her own challenges and search for identity in Paris.
While the characters' journeys were not always easy - and honestly, made me a little uncomfortable - the outcome was good and did provide closure to the reader. The story was like a twelve-month therapy session wrapped into the book. - Rosanna (Downtown)
