    In the Fall of 2017, I won The Impact of a Single Event by R.L Prendergast in a Goodreads Giveaway I was finally able to make time to read it, and I m so sorry I waited this long It was superb I initially entered the contest because it was about the passing of a journal over a 150 year period throughout a few different connected families Writing and genealogy, how could I not love it At about 280 pages, it is such an easy to read novel, I devoured it in about 3 hours one afternoon.Sonia and Richard, a couple in their mid to late 30 s, stop on the road to help victims of a car accident After the ambulance arrives and carts the couple to the hospital, Sonia and Richard find the journal among the victims belongings, then rush to the hospital to drop it all off From there, the book alternates chapters tracing the lineage of the journal back 6 generations and discussing the impact of it on Sonia and Richard s current lives We learn about what s going on with Sonia and Richard in their chapters and understand what troubles they face, but we also see how the journal was used by each of the 6 people who d previously written in it In the final chapter, Sonia and Richard leave their own imprint when the journal finds its way back to their hands.Much of the writing style and language in this book is absolutely enc...
