Six Strings by Jen Sanya Williamson

Six Strings

Six Strings by Jen Sanya Williamson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


 It is s lovely to read a wholesome refreshing book like this.
I'm no prude, but a lot of authors these days are using some vile language in books and making it so erotic it belongs on the top shelf!Somehow, there is a trend.

All has its place, but too much of a good thing can sometimes get boring [that's just me]

Just look at that cover, its unique, well thought out and is part of the story. To me as an avid reader and reviewer I tend to notice things MORE than what's written in the actual book. I think the packaging is something that has to appeal. Whatever you choose as your cover, if its dressed up nice, its attractive.

This has love, romance and yes its got a great storyline.


This book written by Jen Santa Williamson shows how a book can hold your attention . You know why? Because its a dam good, well thought out piece of elegance. True to life and very VERY real when it comes to Mary her Grandmother. I loved the relationship between Riley and her Gran.

The bit about time travel, I'm going to be honest, I wouldn't have freely chosen to read that, but I was helping out on a blog tour. I'm bloody glad I did as I would have missed this book and bypassed it because of that.

The title, Six Strings was a well thought out title. I thought this book was going to be another rock music book, but its not.

Riley the young lass is a fiesty headstrong girl with moral codes that guide her life. She's honest and true to herself. Nat her best mate who she grew up with is one swell fun guy. I laughed a few times at his antics.

Well written, well thought out read in MHO
The ending was amazing..........but there's more........


Riley Witt is running out of time. 

Battling Alzheimer’s disease, Riley’s grandmother Mary suffers from memory loss, mood swings, and a tendency to wander off. 

As senior year approaches, Riley has to face the reality that the one person she depends on most is slowly fading. Making matters 
worse, when Mary does remember the past, she tells tales of time travel and visions. As Mary’s version of the past gets more confused, Riley knows they are running out of time together. 
But when Riley discovers a guitar belonging to a famous rock star at Mary’s house, the truth behind the crazy tales finally comes out. 

SIX STRINGS tells the story of Riley’s journey back to 1973 where she enters a world of music, long-lost family, and first love. Her adventure is all about discovering her past, understanding her present, and figuring out how to step into her future.
