All the acorns on the forest floor is a beautiful collection of interlocking stories. Kim Hooper’s writing is elegant and effortless as she weaves together the powerful stories of several families sharing their tales of love, hope, heart break and loss.

From the start I was completely captivated. The story starts with one couple giving the reader a glimpse into their lives and currently predicament. Then we are introduced to another person and story, we soon see this one is connected to the first and so on. This way of giving little glimpses into their lives shows us that even when its not immediately clear at first, we are all connected.

I was in awe as each story unfolded and the connection to the others became clear. I really cannot say enough good things about this book. I thought it was beautifully written and the narrator was great too. Hearing the stories of falling in love, the loss of love, the struggles, loosing virginity, trying to conceive, getting pregnant, entering menopause, there are so many ways as a reader I connected with these stories or saw my own family and friends within a character.

Some sections are hopeful the next section will be heartbreaking. I laughed, cried, and couldn’t stop listening. When this book was over, I was truly disappointed because I wanted it to keep going forever. If you are looking for a book that will surely cause you a book hangover, this is it.

Trigger warnings: pregnancy, infertility, adoption, marriage issues,
