The Beautiful Ashes of Gomez Gomez Review & *Giveaway*
The Beautiful Ashes of Gomez Gomez is a book written by Buck Storm. About the book:
"Literary Americana fiction filled with humor and heart
When his wife, Angel, is killed in a head-on collision, Gomez Gomez feels he can't go on--so he doesn't. He spends his days in the bushes next to the crash site drinking Thunderbird wine, and his nights cradling a coffee can full of Angel's ashes. Slow, sure suicide, with no one for company but the snakes, Elvis's ghost, and a strange kid named Bones.
Across town, Father Jake Morales plays it safe, haunted by memories of the woman he left behind, hiding his guilt, loss, and love behind a thick wall of cassock and ritual. Then a shady business deal threatens the town--and his good friend Gomez Gomez--and Father Jake can't just stand by and watch. But what happens when the rescuer is the one in need of saving?
The Beautiful Ashes of Gomez Gomez is quirky, heartfelt, and deeply human. Lives and hopes collide in the town of Paradise, stretching across decades and continents in this epic story of forgiveness, redemption, and love."
From the beginning of the book, I wasn't sure I was going to really be interested in this. It started off rather slow, but I kept with it and I'm glad I did because it really peaked my interest! The story is captivating and it really let me delve into a story that otherwise wouldn't have been had I given up on it.
We can all appreciate a good book while we are inside during these times, pick this book up and dive into a different world!
