Review in Miniature: Five Miles South of Peculiar by Angela Elwell Hunt

If you are looking for that next quirky character driven summer read than Five Miles South of Peculiar by Angela Elwell Hunt is a perfect fit. Sisterly love and hate abounds in the pages of this well written novel. Join the three Caldwell sisters in Five Miles South of Peculiar, a small town in the southern part of Florida, as you open yourself up to a story about family, loyalty, love, growing-up, taking risks and faith. 

The best way I can describe the feel of this book is to say the author writes as if you she’s your best friend and she just arrived on your front porch for some tea and local gossip. Here it is in a nutshell, two of the three sisters have hit that milestone birthday number 50 and start to examine their lives or should I say reexamine their lives. Socrates said, “The unexamined life is not worth living,” and therein lies the conflict of this novel. 

I don’t want to give too much away, but if you are a fan of this bestselling author then this is a must read. If you are new to this author what a great novel to get your feet wet with as you sit pool or beachside. 

Thank you Net Galley and Simon & Schuster Inc./Howard Books for the Advance Reader’s copy of this book.

Happy Reading
