Solace of the Road

I just finished reading this title set in England, about Holly, a young teen, who was living in Templeton House and has just been placed into a foster home. She finds a wig of her foster mother’s, Fiona, who had needed it previously for her cancer treatments. The wig transforms Holly into Sister “Solace”, her new identity, as she leaves her foster home to run away to Ireland, where she believes her “mam” is. From Holly’s memories, the reader gets a picture of what her home life had once been, and one can’t help but feel sorry for her.  I would recommend this title to older teens, (there are some sexual references) who enjoy realistic fiction. This novel comes with a stiff dose, but does have its lighter moments…
