Canary Island Song by Robin Jones Gunn
Canary Island Song appears to center around Carolyn and her life. As is with most of us, things did not go the way she planned. She has regrets, hurts, doubts and fears. So she runs away... to the Canary Islands to see her mother. And while there is a great deal of focus on Carolyn and her journeys (she has more than one and all are not physical), this book also focuses on her mother and her daughter... three generations... some of the same struggles... some different... all looking for something and holding to each other. A beautiful generational picture of womanhood.
