Book That Made Me Cry
I’m going to be honest: a lot of books make me cry. I cry at weddings. I cry at all kinds of things. But I think my favorite book that made me cry was Wild Bells to the Wild Sky. The back story is so heart-wrenching, with Lily and her younger sibling, along with her mother and the ship’s clerk. Eventually, there is another sibling and then things change on the island. Lily and her siblings live on the island for years before being found. Then they lead an entirely different life. The hardships they endure is horrible, and the tale they tell is one of life and death if told to the wrong audience.
Lily Christian was just an enchantingly innocent child of paradise when she fell in love with the sun-bronzed captain who came to take her home to England. But shamed by the resplendent ladies of the court, she bitterly despaired of ever being loved in return.
As the years passed, and fortune’s cruelty forced her into a life of adventure, the girl once forgotten became a ravishing beauty who tormented Valentine Whitelaw’s heart. And as the royal treachery that had destroyed her family now threatened her, he became her champion.
