At first glance of this whimsical cover, Making Marion looked like it would be a lighthearted romantic comedy. Well, I though it did, anyway. What I got between the covers of this book was a poignant story of a woman searching for answers and wanting and needing to be loved and finding her own worth. This is a good read, just not really a lighthearted one. There are moments of laughter, but there are more difficult subjects as well. Death, cancer, abuse (emotional and physical), are some of these subjects. Marion is a woman searching to find answers about her beloved father. What she finds is so much more. This is a book about learning how to forgive, friendship, love, and ultimately finding out you are worthy. I very much enjoyed Marion growing in her character and even the physical changes that took place as she stepped up to be the woman she was meant to be. I would consider this an inspirational read, however there is a little bit of language. I would say around 5 words or less. I very much enjoyed this story and read it very quickly. I received this book from The Book Club Network, Inc. (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
