Two women. One intertwined story.
Have the tissues ready.
That's really all I want to give you.
I have to admit this book took me by surprise. I had really no idea what it was about going into it. It had been several weeks since I had requested the novel for the review program so I could not even remember what it was about. It would not have mattered. The back description gives you really no idea what you are in for. I read the first two lines of the Acknowledgements page and decided not to continue but to move on to the novel itself.
I am glad I did.
There were small spoilers on those pages.
My review will not contain any spoilers. I simply want to encourage you to read the novel.
It is well-written.
It is a tear-jerker.
It is scary at times...the struggle of the two women and how they mirror my own fears.
It is quietly encouraging.
It is not a feel-good read.
It is not an easy read.
It is not a bubbly romance.
But, it is good. Very good.
