Expected Publication Date : September 7th, 2017
I seriously did not expect to fall in love with this one, and if I had to describe this book in three words, they would be: Mesmeric, Quotable and Profound.
A gripping story about Iso, a young Guatemalan woman, who through major events, finds herself struggling with lots of issues like love, motherhood, men, and life in general. She meets and falls in love with a charming Doctor, loses him to a fatal accident which had him move away, and finds herself pregnant and alone. To add to her struggles, her daughter was kidnapped and shipped off to America thus her journey begins to get her baby daughter back.
The plot and prose was super simple but I found myself admiring how easy the words flowed which made it very easy to read. It was beautifully written and I really could have finished this book in one sitting.
I couldn’t give it the full five stars because there did come up a point where I kind of got bored and forced myself to get through those pages. I found the first part of the book more appealing than the last half. Looking at the tabs marked in my book, it would testify to that. I found myself marking more quotes in the beginning.
Overall, I would totally recommend this book. It’s not a new story or have that wow factor, but in its own unique way, it has something worth reading.
Thanks to @duck_books for this book, which was given in an exchange for an honest review.
