Review: The Heart’s Invisible Furies

Hearts

My Rating: 5/5 – There are very few characters that you really become attached to and feel like you’ve witnessed grow up in front of your very eyes.  Those characters stick with you like childhood friends; you think of them from time to time, things that happen in your everyday life remind you of them and make you smile to yourself.  For me those characters are Anne (Anne with an E!), the Sweet Valley twins (maybe not brag-worthy, but I don’t gotta lie to kick it!) Laura from Little House on the Prairie, the sisters from Little Women and of course Harry, Ron and Hermione – and now Cyril Avery falls in those ranks.  This book was charming and heart breaking and timely and classic and endearing and everything you need from a book all rolled up in one.  I won’t forget this book any time soon, and for that it deserves my highest rating.
