The Year of Necessary Lies is about a woman named Julia trying to pave her way back in 1903/1904. When her great-granddaughter Kelly finds her tape recorder and a few tapes back when Kelly is a teenager, it opens her eyes how famous her Julia is. Years later when Julia dies, Kelly and her mom start listening to the tapes and find that Julia is more brave than they think she was.
Julia's journey is a hard one with growing up poor, marrying rich and losing 3 babies. After the last baby dies, Julia is compelled to get out of the house and that is when she discovers the Audubon Society and their quest to eradicated bird feathers from hats. When Julia discovers her husband is one of the company putting bird feathers on hats, it sends her on this journey that ends in Florida on discovering who she really is and what matters most to her.
I loved how the book incorporated Kelly and Julia together that wasn't to hard to read. This was my first book by Kris Radish and now I want to read more by her just due to how good she writes and how she makes the story come to alive!
Thank You to Kris Radish for making me want to read more of your fabulous books!!
