In “Chokecherry” by Sheri Meshal you get an inside view of a woman whose life has fallen apart around her, but somehow she still found the strength to put it back together, somewhat. Dana has been through more tragedy than anyone should have to deal with in one lifetime. She lost her entire family at a young age, and then her only remaining family member at 41. It would take a person of stone not to fall apart in her circumstances. She struggles with survivor’s guilt, and wonders why she was spared, when all she has seemed to do was waste her chance, when her family had no chance. Moving back to Chokecherry, her family’s farm, seems to be the only way she can truly heal.
Dana’s personality is a little off putting to me. I think it’s because she is just so unstable that it’s hard to connect with her or relate to her. I really liked Stu’s character though. He brings a lightness to the novel that it really needs, and he helps to balance Dana out. I was confused throughout a lot of the novel. Things like Malcom’s super strong connection to Dana’s dead family, her rapid BFF relationship with Stud, and her up and down emotions were a little overwhelming to read at times. Sometimes it just seemed really disjointed, like it didn’t flow smoothly for me. I felt like I was constantly missing things, and would go back to look to see if I had skipped something, but I hadn’t. The whole book is a little bizarre, and the ‘touch messages’ were really confusing, because I just didn’t get where they were coming from.
Over all, I didn’t dislike the book, it kept me interested and wanting to know more about the characters and their stories. However, it was just a little confusing for me, and I felt like the story was all over the place at times.
I give “Chokecherry” a 4 out of 5 stars.
