Broken For You
Featuring eccentric characters, laugh-out-loud humor, and tremendous heart, this refreshing debut novel has been compared to the works of Anne Tyler and John Irving. Setting her story in contemporary Seattle, Kallos spins a most unusual tale of the friendship between an older woman who has learned of her impending death, and a young woman whose life is unraveling. The book explores the nature of human relationships and offers insight about the hidden strength in people we may see as flawed or imperfect. You won`t be able to put down this thought provoking, compelling page turner. Strong character development, an unpredictable plot, and beautifully poetic language combine to make this a winner.
