The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender (Hardcover)
Morris YA Debut Award Finalist Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga. Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender.
Ava—in all other ways a normal girl—is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the summer solstice celebration.
First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human. Toon meer Toon minder. Recensie s I absolutely adored this book. A book I will read over and over, and love forever. Full of on-point whimsy, heart-wrenching tragedy and enough sweet moments to offer some hope, it's a bittersweet tale of love and loss, but it's also so much more than that.

First off, I enjoyed this book immensely. The wonderful cast of characters manages to be both colourful and dark at the same time. When one reads the back of this book, it is expected that a sentimental love-story will be found, and indeed this book is romantic at its very heart, but it is also slightly more sinister than anticipated. The hugely complicated plot unfolded in such a simple yet attention grabbing way, fab!
I love the eccentricity of the Lavender family that contrasts beautifully with the normality of the emotions felt by each and every character. It is one of those tales where you can grow up with the characters, watch them blossom, and live their lives alongside them.
A divine masterpiece. Walton has captured human emotion so purely in this novel. The plot was well paced and reached a marvellous climax. The use of language was vivid and romantic which boded well with the underlying themes of the novel. See all books by Leslye Walton.

Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life!
