Review: A Grand Day to Get Lost by Kris Radish

A Grand Day to Get Lost

A wrong turn down a remote Florida backwoods highway turns into the ride of a lifetime for Emily Weaver, a university librarian, when she mysteriously discovers a manuscript written by Pulitzer Prize winning author Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings dated years after the beloved author's death. Emily unwittingly begins a treasure hunt in a world that is as beautiful as it is dangerous, and it is a hunt that could not only change her life, but the landscape of the entire literary world. 
Is it really possible that the renowned author of The Yearling faked her own death in 1953?
Parading through the scrub country in Rawlings's seemingly fresh footsteps, Emily must separate fact from fiction as she discovers more than one secret world, opens up her heart to new friendships and challenges, encounters ghosts from the past, and puts her own life in danger to uncover the truth.
A Gran Day no only resurrects a bold literary icon but also explores the emotional landscape of loss, survival, and forgiveness in a world where anything is possible for those who dare to risk and follow their dreams.


Once again Radish writes a books that is both interesting and relatable.  I fell in love with Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral and went on to read a few other amazing reads by Radish.  My favorite to date is Tuesday Night Miracles.  Is is simply amazing!  In A Grand Day to Get Lost Radish keeps up with her brilliant writing of female characters, friendship, family and life in general.  She takes you on an adventure to find truths, discover oneself and find a new way to live life to the fullest!  I really enjoyed this book and rate it 4 stars!
