    A Severing of Ties is a very well told; but perhaps slightly bit

    A Severing of Ties is a very well told; but perhaps slightly bitter sweet; story. This first emotionally charged installment of this great new series follows the first generation of the Benson family, and is about the painfully realistic circumstances that occur through out the lives of a group of children who are raised under circumstances which literally breed drug, alcohol, and physical abuse.
    In spite of growing up under such terrible circumstances, there is also a lot of hope for the characters in this story. The three Benson sisters; Willow, Emilee, and Avery; each experience their own dramatically life-altering circumstances; but still think of one another; as well as their brother Scott who was more of a father to the girls than their actual father; on a constant basis. Their lives intertwine at the most touching moments possible, and then go separate ways once more to increase the depth of the story. Their individual and unique perspectives on the events that are affecting them all make this story hit home even harder.
    The two youngest children who are born to a dying mother and an alcoholic father with no interest in his prodigy are not yet old enough for the reader to even begin to imagine where their paths in life will take them. Along with Willow and her sister-in-law Justine’s boys they are sure to encounter very realistic experiences just as moving and realistic as those that their parents encounter. Can’t wait to read the next book to see where the dramatic contrast of fate and personal drive take the Benson family’s next generation!

    I just loved this book! A friend of mine told me that I just had

    I just loved this book! A friend of mine told me that I just had to read it, and I was hesitant at first. I'm so glad I did though. It's a very sad, very compelling story with an ending happy enough to satisfy me, yet sad enough to be realistic. I highly suggest reading this book!
