Tricia Copeland’s “Drops of Sunshine” is a pleasant, heart-warming story about a young girl coming to terms with some major life changes. The tale is well-written with interesting characters.
I especially like the fortitude of Nina, the main character. At first, she’s a little too-perfect. I thought I was reading about someone much older. But slowly, the carefully constructed bravado drops and you get to know Nina. A lot has happened in her short life and she’s trying hard to cope with it all.
A character I would have liked to know more about is Jacob. The little glimpse Copeland provides is intriguing. I’m wondering what other secrets he has hidden.
The paranormal angle sneaks up on you in this novella. Copeland wrote it in such a way that it had me wondering if the powers mentioned might be real.
I look forward to reading more by Copeland.
