Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benin is another in a string of books I have read lately that have garnered “best of 2019” status. This is another of the NYTimes’ 50 best fiction books of 2019. It was also one of Nicole’s favorites this year on The Readerly Report. I really, really enjoyed this read about a woman who leaves her daughter in Jamaica to both seek her fortune and reunite with her love and best friend in NYC. There’s a lot to this story and it’s a tough read in many ways, but it’s really interesting and thought-provoking. Highly recommend!
