Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?
4 out of 5 Hearts
Knotted Roots is more then a love story. It's a story about growing up, growing closer , LOVE and FAMILY. To me the romance was secondary to Roxie's growing relationship with her grandmother. Families are full of secrets and Roxie's is no different.
Why has she only seen her grandmother once?
Why are her parents getting divorced?
Why are her friends so shallow?
Why does she have to go away for the summer?
Why does grandma say to stay away from Chase?
Why why why?
So many questions and some were answered some were not. Roxie is about to experience things she never has before hard work, satisfaction, so many feelings that she has cut off before now. Knotted roots to me was all about finding not only your own roots but your own path and trying to find out who you really are. Chase and Roxie go through a lot of ups and downs and right when things are starting to look up her grandmother gives her some horrible news and my only response was
then I was all like this is
But in the end the story is perfect just how it is.

About the Author:
If you had asked 6 year old Ruthi what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would have told you a Rock Star. Those dreams faded to the background when she found out who the true Rock Stars are: Authors.
She has always had a fascination with books, losing herself completely in numerous books, enjoying the worlds she found that were so unlike her own. They were her escape, and eventually became her passion.
Her family has been putting up with her and her incoherent ramblings while she worked on her debut novel, Knotted Roots. Her five year old and Fiance have suffered through many “fend for yourself” nights, but somehow still manage to love her anyway.
She is now attending the Southern New Hampshire University, working on her Bachelor’s in Creative Writing/Fiction so that she can create her own worlds for others to fall in love with.
