Holland.
It wasn’t the name I was born with, but it was a gift that was given to me at the age of four. On that birthday, I didn’t know what it meant to be a Holland, but over the next thirty-something years, there would be many lessons taught by a generous and adoring family. To be a Holland means to accept differences. To compromise. To listen, but to also speak your mind

Fair warning. This is an emotional read. If you love these characters as much as I do, there are many highs and lows in this book that you will live through with them. You also get numerous points of view - aside from the main ones of Livvy and Jon - and this really heightens the poignant experience that is this book.

A Holland and a Fighter takes place a little while after Make Waves, and we do check in with Max and find out how he's doing. As the name suggests, this is a book about a Holland,

Heartbreakingly beautiful. Read it in one day. Cannot stop thinking about it. Loved it all and especially loved peeking in on all of the Hollands and Scotts. Grab your tissues. First tears for me at 7%.

To me, this book is the culmination of the Emi Lost and Found series and the Choise series combined. Lori Otto has written an emotionally charged story that will shake you to your core. It was soooo good.

I'll be honest, this book is very hard to rate. And not because it isn't well-written. It is. In fact, I love the way Lori Otto crafts a story, clearly putting her heart and soul into every word. I have loved the Holland/Scott crew from the very start and thoroughly enjoyed Livvy Holland's 4 book series, which is truly some of Otto's best work to date. And now with A Holland and a Fighter, I was anxious to get back into the world of Livvy and her Jon and the life they are building together. But ...more

Beautifully written...

For me, this is Lori's best novel yet... "A Holland and a Fighter" is an incredibly well-written story; at times it hurt to read. It brings back all of our favorite Hollands and Scotts from Lori's previous novels.

This is one of many poignant sentences that made me pause and read again: “I look down to face him, noticing the blur in my eyes brought on by heavy tears that aren’t brave enough to drop yet.”

Don't make us wait to long for the next one, Lori! Simply beautiful.

Buckle up. This one is quite the ride. This is absolutely not a stand alone book – do not rob yourself of the experience that is the Holland / Scott clan.

I do typically read the author’s books within a day or two of their release, but this one required a bit more time. Not to sound cliché but I laughed, I cried and I may have sworn at the author once or twice (sorry Lori!). The book was so rich in content and since it was shared from a few different view points, it helped to provide a more robus

I honestly feel like the Hollands and the Scotts are family to me. I don't even need to read the blurb from . Lori Otto book anymore. I just know I will love it because she is simply that kind of author to me. A brilliant story teller who have given me some of my favorite fictional family and characters. I have to say this was the most difficult book from hers I've read. The pain encountered was shocking and totally unexpected. I honestly did not know if I could continue but I did and I'm so gla ...more

I’ve struggled with how to review this book because it explores the depths of just about every human emotion. Example- It’s so well written that I was sobbing while getting a pedicure and my nail technician asked me to stop reading so I could enjoy my pedicure. It will grab your heart, twist it, break it, and ultimately soothe it. Be prepared for a beautifully written story that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading.

What an amazing journey from start to finish! I am just in love with this family’s strength. If you’ll excuse, I now have to take a couple days break from reading to recover and process this whole story.

A wonderful journey! The author made me happy, sad - yes have a box of tissues ready, and angry. She always leaves me wanting more books from her 💕
