REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
The House We Grew Up In is emotional, tragic, and a never-ending series of family dramas. I’m having a hard time reviewing this book – because the characters were well-done, the plot was good and the writing has very interesting. But this type of book in not my thing. If you do like family dramas, where each member makes a selfish decision that affects the others, where each member in some way does something life-changing and loses touch with reality … then this is for you. It’s a testament to the author that – despite my dislike of a family tragedy – I read the entire thing and had to know what happened to the characters.
If you want to read this book stop here (spoiler alert) … if not read on, I had to tell someone about all the tragedies in this book because they are so numerous. They include: Mental illness, suicide, sister cheating with brother-in-law, father falling in love with son’s baby mama, senior mom and lesbian girlfriend, cancer and more!
