    PDF/EPUB Jo Cotterill µ µ A Storm of Strawberries PDF Ï A Storm Kindle - storm ebok, strawberries kindle, A Storm epub, A Storm of Strawberries PDFA Library of Lemons was my favourite read of last year so I was very eager to read Storm of Strawberries Main character Darby has Downs Syndrome and she lives on a strawberry farm with her mum stepdad sister and step brother Darby and Kaydee her sister have always been very close so when Kaydee develops a close friendship with Lissa Darby is very jealous and struggles to cope The story develops whilst a hurricane is building that threatens the family's livelihood not all is as it seems with Kaydee and Lissa's relationship and there's a lot of tension under the surface that upsets poor Darby In the end it is left to her to remind her family that you love people for who they are not their physical makeup This is a gorgeous warm family story that left me wanting to hug my kids although at 27 and 29 they might object especially if it
