    My first thoughts on this book? OMG!!! Could you just imagine? H

    My first thoughts on this book? OMG!!! Could you just imagine? Holy Hannah! What a trip.




    This was a very well written novel. If the subject matter and the destinations hadn’t kept me captivated, Godim’s writing definitely did. The story had a nice flow and her descriptions laid everything out as if you were looking at pictures sent by the characters, rather than reading about their journey. These descriptions as well as Godim’s narrative help to build the very solid, somewhat heartening, and yet rather disconcerting story that Godim gives to us for our enjoyment. The defined progression towards the story’s conclusion allows you, as a reader, to just sit back and enjoy the ride.




    This novel presents us with a very well developed cast of characters. They become such a real part of your life that even when you want to throw a pillow at them because they are doing or have done something completely ridiculous you can’t help but feel for them. They are also a very diverse cast who manage to work together, as a family, even under the most intense and heart wrenching circumstances. Although you feel for them, and for the trials that they have been, are going, and will go through you also get a warm and fuzzy feeling from them. Also, because of their diversity you can’t help but relate to at least somebody in the series. 




    This novel definitely was a bit of a remarkable ride that really makes you wonder. What if? What if??? WHAT IF??????




    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review

    My 4.5 Star Review Through the eyes of two mothers we learne

    My 4.5 Star Review




    Through the eyes of two mothers we learned more about each of their stories, their fears, sorrows, pain and failures as well as their victories and strong determination to fight and hold on for what are theirs. 




    Amanda, a widow for the last five years takes us on an interesting journey from Russia to Israel to find her missing daughter. In the process she discovers more about herself and allow herself the freedom of exploring about life, her love life and men. In the beginning she received some dreadful news coming to grips with the revelation and set out to find a baby left behind thirty-four years ago.




    Sonya took us on another journey, this one pulling at the hearts strings as she tried to win the affection of her daughter and make a living for them between two jobs. Her drunken husband unreliable but yet influencing her life greatly. Her struggles with motherhood were at times frustrating, not knowing for sure if she need to be the mother or the peace keeper. Torn between her jobs and her teenage daughter who played her like a fiddle. She makes the wrong decisions and in the process loose her authority as a mother with dreadful consequences  Her daughter played on this until finally she was confronted with the stupidity of her own decisions restoring the relationship between them.




    The colorful descriptions of the landscape of Russia, their bureaucratic system and the poverty that clutched this once thriving country in an iron grip urge you on to leave the pages. Israel, the heat and the dangers of suicide bombers draws you into the story making it real and entertaining. Will written with a great plot you are drawn into these characters struggles, the people that shared their lives, making it more colorful making it believable and heart warming.

    I enjoyed the book. It is about a woman who's baby got switched at birth with another. There were times I smiled, laughed and yes I cried a tear or two. The ending was good but I feel the author should of took it a little further. A good read.
