I've read many books; I've read more this year than I can remember! I can honestly say, What Was Mine, by Helen Klein Ross, is by far the most emotional read-
The story is about a woman, Lucy, who's always gotten what she wanted. The best job, a great guy turned hubby and money to do whatever she pleased. But she couldn't have a baby.
Her desire for a child was so strong, it snatched a hold of her entire life. Her marriage, her free time, even a bedroom in her home. Things were looking rough... until the child of her dreams was just, one day, waiting for her! And that's where the story takes off.
I guarantee, if you read this book, you will feel a great range of emotions. You will be shocked, angry, happy, saddened, and so much more and that's within the first few chapters...
When I received this novel as an ARC, I happened to move and sorta forgot about it. Then I found it in my Audible.com library and thought, don't I have this? I purchased it anyway and WOW! This book was unreal.
I normally don't like the multiple points of view and voices, but it all worked for this book, making it a superlative read as well as listen. I enjoyed reading the book, then taking it with me when I walked, jogged and drove with this story because it was enthralling. The emotions tied up in this story made me want to cry with understanding, get angry and maybe even kick a bit of arse! Sorry... This book was finished in a few days because it was just that good and that doesn't happen enough for me, when it comes to adult fiction.
I will go out and look for more by Ms. Ross. She's skilled in storytelling and allows you to enter the story, experiencing every range of feeling. This book gets all up in your 'feels'. It's not a ride, it's a careful walk-through of lives that you become attached to. You want to chastise and fuss, and maybe even cry a little- but don't tell anyone I told you that!
Read this book; it's pure perfection. I'm on to the next read! 📚
