Turning in Circles Review

I received a complimentary copy for Turning in Circles from the author Michelle Buckman.

Once I began reading Turning in Circles, I had a hard time putting it down until I finished the book. The interaction between the two sisters kept my attention as I read the frustrations experienced by Savannah as the close relationship she had with Charleston dissolved. In spite of Savannah’s efforts, Charleston made choice after choice that kept me interested and disappointed at the same time.

Michelle Buckman’s characters felt real and believable. The story increased in drama the further I read. I visualized the settings as I read.

The sisters’ story illustrated what sometimes happens to people we love. We see them make choices that change the course of their life, often with inescapable consequences. We are powerless to stop the unhealthy changes in their life.

Turning in Circles depicts life as it often happens to us or those around us. We can learn from our mistakes and those of others to make changes for a better life.

For a thought-provoking read, pick up your copy of Turning in Circles.


Author: Virginia Pillars, author

I'm a daughter, a farmer's wife, a mother, a grandmother, a friend, a sister-in-law, an aunt, an author, a part-time musician, a part-time businesswoman, a part-time gardener who loves to talk with people. I have a passion for my faith, my family and my friends. I love to learn and teach others what I discovered. In 2004, we discovered our daughter suffered from a debilitating disease - Paranoid Schizophrenia. I knew nothing about mental illness, but we didn't have the luxury of learning at a pace we could absorb. We had to dive in and hope we learned to swim as we came up for air. Our daughter is now in recovery and I work as a volunteer for NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) to support others who battle mental illness. I wrote my journey in the book: Broken Brain, Fortified Faith: Lessons of Hope Through a Child's Mental Illness. Ask for it by name at your favorite bookstore or purchase it directly from the publisher, Familius.com or from the Amazon or Barnes and Noble website.
