Loved. This. Book.

Updated: Dec 3, 2012:
I read this novel shortly after the hardcover released and fell in love with the story and the characters. My heart was broken and pieced back together by the situation Halverson explores in THE UNDERSIDE OF JOY, and I was quite speechless when I wrote my very brief review. The paperback released last week and I wanted to add more thoughts here. As both a parent and child of blended families, I found so much to think about in the story. I was moved to joy, grief, anger, disbelief, and finally, hope and joy again while reading. There is truly no "good guy" or "bad guy"--but simply mothers who love their children and want to do best by them. This is a remarkable first novel and I eagerly await what is next from Seré Prince Halverson.
