Let Her Go
Let Her Go does not disappoint. The addition of the 8 Point Buck in the plot is a bit out there, but I honestly find that it fits with the story. Being an Upstate New Yorker myself I can understand The frustration that Morgan Sullivan ...more
This is the weirdest, most nonsensical book I've ever read in my entire life!
Where the hell to even start?
She's Invisible... I got it the first 100 times.
The female MC is very self-depreciating, woe is me. Yes, her parents are asses and I get that she's been put down her entire life, but I can get her emotional standpoint ...more

Pritchard has a way of writing here that affected me on a physical level - reading about Morgan going on her runs that could be both punishing yet therapeutic made me feel like throwing on some sneakers and hitting the road myself (don't ...more
I'm a winner of this book through GoodReads First Reads Giveaways.

If you’ve ever lost anyone dear to you, the world becomes your enemy, time both your bane and you salve and everything around you crystallizes into either a ritual that enables you or an enormous, relentless irritant that drives you bad into the darkness. The beauty of M. R. Pritchard’s, Let Her Go, is the way the author frames her wounded characters with this bi-polar world. She roughens them, wears them down and lets the reader share in their pai ...more

I hated that her husband never trusted her to share his situation. And his parents - that was just beyond belief weird.
The romance, such as it was, was built gradually and was nice, but the twist that was added to it, was unnecessar ...more
The reader-discovered novels of the Kindle Scout program are like a box of assorted chocolates. While there’s a wide variety to choose from, they are all wonderfully satisfying. M.R. Pritchard’s “Let Her Go” is no exception.
Yes, there is romance in this story. But “Let Her Go” delves deeper than that. There are moments that will tug at your heartstrings, moments that will make you laugh, and moments that will have you celebrating the power of love. This is a story with soul.
I hate the ending.... let me clarify that, I hate that it ended! Loved this book, I fell in love with Morgan and Nick. Theirs was a messed up relationship, but as you read you come to understand their hearts. Even loved Bucky, and his mysterious ways. Loved how the writer put the story line together, get the tissues out, you'll need them. ...more
This is a really good book. I was expecting it to be about the death of a sister. It however was more complicated than that. It was a about the loss of a husband. The tangled relationship with her less than loving mother. It is about falling in love again. Learning to accept herself. I would recommend this book for those who love a happy ending.
I received this book free for a kindle scout nomination on Amazon. I loved it. Alex's death is heartbreaking. I was so sad for Morgan. She had so much loss in her life. So did Nick. After a long battle they end up with their hea. I really enjoyed that two broken people helped to fix each other. ...more
Saying that I could not put Let Her Go down would be an understatement. I read the entire book in one sitting. M.R. Pritchard, writes in a manner that makes you feel and fall in love with the characters. The love and tragedy become your own. Highly recommend.
