Son by Lois Lowry
This is the fourth and final book in The Giver quartet by Lois Lowry. It is the book that ties all the other books together. It tells the story of Claire, the birth mother of Gabe, the young child taken by Jonas when he was slated to be killed in The Giver.
I enjoyed the story. I liked how it tied up the loose ends of the other books. Listening to the audio did make me more aware that even though this book had the happiest ending of any in the series -- it really is not a happy book. It is filled with heartbreak, sorrow, and yearning.
