Review of the idea of you
by Amanda Prowse
I definitely relate to wanting a child so badly. I felt that I could not bear to live if I did not have a child of my own when I first married at age eighteen. I now realize that I could have lived a fulfilling life without children, but the young me did not feel that way. I did have a miscarriage scare when I was early in my marriage and it was devastating to me. I became absolutely hysterical once I was away from the doctor. I really enjoyed this book and I felt it handled infertility and adoption well, but I am very emotional and I cry while reading many books and seeing movies, and I only cried once briefly during the reading of this book. I just felt that the author did not quite hit that deep part of me that completely connected with the characters, Lucy and Camille in particular. I really liked Lucy. I felt great empathy for Camille. I just felt something was missing in the emotions of the characters. I needed MORE. The final portion of the book seemed to cover too many loose ends in a quick fashion and left some important details out.
I highly recommend this book and think readers will anxiously return to finish the book as I did. I give this book a 4 star rating.
I received a copy of this book from netgalley and I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
