I do not know where to begin, but this book had me crying so much throughout the whole story, that I lost count. I feel when a book can affect you in that kind of way, it means it was very well written and the author did her job as a novelist to capture her readers. And by doing so, this book will be a great success. I read Hatvany's other book called "Best Kept Secret" (Click title for review) and it captivated me and brought me to tears as well. So when I saw her new title on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it. I guess you can say I like to cry. LOL. Now because of the impact of these two novels, I searched for her previous work and bought her first published book called "The language of sisters." This book looks like another tear jerker. I can't wait to read it.

I was blessed to have both parents while growing up. But sadly many children in this world has to grow up in a single parent household. And that's what happened in this story. Eden had both of her parents up to the age of ten. But her father's mental status and instability has led to her parents' divorce. In this story Eden starts going through changes after the divorce that she carries with her throughout her adult life. And as a reader, the author has you going through every emotion along with Eden. You feel her pain, anger and sadness.

The emptiness Eden feels in her heart is too much for her to endure on her own. So she's pretty lucky to have a great support system. One of them being her best friend named Georgia and I love her! She has spunk to tell you the truth and then sensitivity to know when to hear Eden out or let her be. The struggles Eden goes through will have you crying. Throughout the whole story, you'll find yourself rooting for her and crossing your fingers that everything works out to her advantage. "Outside the lines" was another win for Hatvany. If you're into tear jerkers then this is the story for you. A definite Good Choice for Reading.
