Torch by Cheryl Strayed

TorchI read the author’s second book first.  “Wild” is a memoir of Strayed’s trek and search for identity along the Pacific Crest Trail. “Torch” is her first book, a novel about the early death of a mother and her family’s reaction to the tragedy.  Although it is a fictional accounting, “Torch” is rooted in some of Strayed’s real life experiences.  Like “Wild”, “Torch” is deep and real.  It’s an engrossing read.
