“The weight of what has been lost is always heavier than what remains.”

–Britt Bennett

Book No. 36 of 2017

Truth be told, I wanted to like this book a lot more than I actually did.

It was a well-written book, I can say that with honesty. The writing style was clear but creative and characters were well fleshed out. I loved the scenes revolving around a family church in Oceanside, a pretty familiar setting.

Unfortunately, there were many points where I just found it hard to relate to the characters. Some of the choices that they made were a little bit hard for me to empathize with.
