Antoine Leiris could have written this book in so many ways. Instead of focusing on the horrific event of the Bataclan Theatre bombings in Paris he took his story and spun it into a beautiful tale. You Will Not Have My Hate is the tale of a husband and father having to figure out how to live life without the love of his life by his side. He takes the loss of his wife and the loss of his son’s mother and makes it into something that made him stronger. Antoine steps up, continues to live, and continues to make a happy existence for his son. The story is not long, only 144 pages, yet there is such a punch to the story. My heart was tugged at, my mind was tested, and my life was affected. I stopped and thought about how my life could be changed if something happen to my husband, what if something happen to me and he had to take over… it opened my eyes to what those who lost someone have to do just to get through the day. This is an inspiring story. I look up to Antoine and I have never met him. Not everyone can go through the loss of a spouse in the way he has and come out not full of hate.
