Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a crier. I cry at movies. I cry at TV shows. I will even cry at commercials! But for some reason, it takes a lot to make me cry at books. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I cried while reading one….until now. And my crying was intense and prolonged. It was a sustained cry for the last 100 pages. It was not cute. This book, while not perfect, is one of the best books I have ever read. I finished it in 3 sittings because I was so invested in the story and characters. I am still thinking about it and will continue to think about it for several more days. I am hesitant to recommend it due to the heaviness of the plot but if you’re looking for a book that will rip your heart out and take your breath away, I can’t recommend this book enough.Continue reading “The Great Believers”

Oh my heart. I was gifted this book at my book club Christmas party, knowing nothing about it, I hadn’t even heard of it. The friend who gifted it said I would love it…and she was 100% right. Not only did I adore it, I am now encouraging everyone I know to read it. I highly recommend this book.
