Broken. Healing. Hope.
What an emotional rollercoaster this book was! The presentation of what Lucy goes through is heartbreaking and well done. Miss Powell has such a way with words. Through her storytelling, she is able to elicit a range of emotions from readers. Anger and sadness are some but most of all, hope. I was all in my feelings with this book! I felt such compassion for Lucy because I have experienced something similar. I know I am not alone in this. The author is brave for taking on such a subject. Lucy’s journey is not an easy one and I was rooting for her all the way! You are strong!
This is a wonderful read. Make sure you have some tissues handy. You’ll definitely need them! A perfect follow up to the first book. I give this 5 stars.
