“⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Book Review 5/5
I originally purchased this book to carry in my bookstore.
It was beautiful and fit the specs for the shelf I was looking to fill.
After hearing what other readers said, I held off reading it. I usually stay away from books that tackle tough issues, but something kept drawing me back.
Whether the gorgeous cover, the reviews, or maybe the Universe at large – whatever the reason, I picked it up and read it in an afternoon.
Let me say that, without a doubt, Reasonable Lies is superbly written.
The storyline is heart-wrenching, and the story arc is engaging from start to finish.
Be warned, however – you will need tissues. I made it to Chapter Four before I broke down and cried. I cried for the MC, for her dad, for me, for my dad. I was a huge blubbery mess. But I could not help myself. I had to keep reading. And I pretty much cried throughout the entire book.
It reminded me of the fragility of our lives and everything we take for granted.
This book will tear you to pieces and build you back together and leave you questioning everything from the meaning of life to every white lie you ever told.
I found myself questioning what I would do if I were ever in this situation. Would I want to protect my family or would I decide to openly share my struggles?
With two young daughters of my own, this book forced me to realize that life can change in the blink of an eye. It challenged me to really think about what I would do and how I would react.
But as readers, we need books like this–books to remind us of our humanity, of our fragility, and ultimately of our strength in our times of weakness.
Thank you @tarosewood for giving us such an incredible work of art”
