Fourth of July Creek by Smith Henderson
Fourth of July Creek

Laney F, July 14, 2014

Fantastic book. I kept reading about Fourth of July Creek before it came out and eagerly bought a copy when it became available. The chatter was not hype or hyperbole. This is a terrific book; good story, great character development, researched nuances throughout, and no wasted words...everything works here. Fourth of July Creek is one of those rare books that, when you recommend it to a friend, you have no doubt they will love it.

I just finished reading this remarkable memoir. I kept waiting for the happy ending, which I knew, and which Sonali Deraniyagala kept reminding the reader, was not to come. It is an extraordinary book of unimaginable grief and pain, and how the author is still trying to deal with her loss.

Ms. Deraniyagala holds nothing back in relating the process she went through for years after losing her entire, immediate family to the "wave." It is a moving piece, in which she explains her very personal process of healing - if one can call it that - or at least one person's way of coping and carrying on...for ever after.
