5 out of 5 stars
Well, I wanted to wait to right this review so these amazing sporadic thoughts of mine would come out coherent. I cannot begin to explain how simply perfect this book was. I mean, this book had everything any book needs, it has romance, hate, life, death, happiness, depression, and an amazing story line that was beyond flawless!
If I had one word to explain this book it would be “superamazinglyperfect”that is the only word that could even come close to describe the way this book was set up. When you read this book you will tend to feel emotions with the characters and you will be on a roller coaster of emotions! Knotted Roots is an all new amazing! This book can be described as “breathtaking” “tantalizing” but most of all you will find it “breathtaking” and “heartwarming.”
I write non-spoiler reviews so I cannot tell you that what happens in this book will change your outlook and make you look deeper in your life. But I promise you that this book will leave it’s mark and you will not only be a better person after reading it but you will realize what you are taking out of life and how you take things for granted if you do. I will remember this book forever for that reason alone.
Roxy – she is a scared girl that will learn to be the person she always should have been and you can watch her blossom into a great character.
Chase – this guy is the definition of heartbreak, he has experienced it all and continues to be the best person possible. He teaches me or you “the reader” to not take what you have and what you get for granted because he knows what that can do to a person.
Katy – she is what every person wants in a best friend, she may have the heart of gold but she also has the sense to kick you in the face if you aren’t seeing the point.
Grandma Betty – she is the grandma everyone wants, she reminds me of the most wonderful woman Derinda Love. She has a lifetime of experience and thrives to keep everyone going. She puts everyone before herself and doesn’t take no for an answer. She is the strongest woman you will ever meet and that is what makes her such a wonderful role model
About the Author:
If you had asked 6 year old Ruthi what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you a Rock Star. Those dreams faded to the background when she found out who the true Rock Stars are: Authors.
She has always had a fascination with books, losing herself completely in numerous books, enjoying the worlds she found that were so unlike her own. They were her escape, and eventually became her passion.
Her family has been putting up with her and her incoherent ramblings while she worked on her debut novel, Knotted Roots. Her five year old and Fiance have suffered through many “fend for yourself” nights, but somehow still manage to love her anyway.
She is now attending the Southern New Hampshire University, working on her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing/Fiction so that she can create her own worlds for others to fall in love with.
Okay, now that I’m done talking in the third person, let me just say that I love connecting with people via Facebook, Goodreads, my blog, etc. If you would like to chat, you can usually find me online at any given time. I also want to say thank you to each and every person who reads my book. It was a labor of love and I truly hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
