Which is your favorite book from 2022?
Diane’s response was-
Fiction- The Good Left Undone by Adriana Trigiano. From Good Reads- “This is my favorite book this year. It pulled my emotions to the surface, and I had to stop and weep from time to time. The writing is beautiful and the message is love, faith, family, and goodness.” See more of her review at Good Reads.
