Although I found In Leah’s Wake slow to get into the brilliance in the heartbreaking window pulled at my heartstrings and kept me reading. Further into the book these situations got closer together and ever more hauntingly real.
Although I haven’t ever been in Leah’s position I’ve felt like she did many times and her sister Justine, in many ways, was me.
In Leah’s Wake follows a family who could be your neighbour, your friend, or you as two loving parents question their child-raising decisions as when their oldest turns 16 it seems everything they knew about their life alludes them. A soccer pro in the making, Leah excels at school and knows right from wrong until she falls madly in love with the wrong type of guy.
You’ve been there. Thinking you had your life together and then you fall in love.
Fall in love with In Leah’s Wake, then hate it and love it again for all it reveals about yourself, your decision and the cause and effect of all you do.
Thanks for reading,
