review Between Two Skies Joanne OSullivan ð 4 Free download Between Two Skies Free download Í 104 Ine s aching heart Told in a strong steady voice with a keen sense of place and a vivid cast of characters here is a novel that asks compelling uestions about class and politics exile and belonging and the pain of being cast out of your home But above all this remarkable debut tells a gently woven love story difficult to put down impossible to forge. I really loved this beautifully written story Evangeline and her family must evacuate southern Louisiana in advance of Hurricane Katrina Her family ends up in Atlanta while her friends end up scattered across the country Add in a slow burn romance a broken heart and the death of Evangeline s beloved grandmother and you ve got the makings of an introspective heartfelt story
