Some of us read for the escape.
Some of us read as a way of meditation - it calms them.
Others, read for the amazing characters and authors who invent them
I am a reader for the calming escape AND for the amazing
characters. I also read for the journey and THIS book took me on one super ride!!
5 stunning ***** from someone who took the journey!!!

This is a full-length stand-alone. There is no cheating in this book.

NOTE: I want to make this review as simple as possible so not to give the story-line away. If, no when, you decide to read this sensational book, you'll be happy I didn't reveal too much!!

I've got to be honest...when I first started this book, I was not a fan. You can see I gave it 5 what changed? That's where the journey come in. It was breathtaking, it moved me. Moved me to confusion, frustration, intrigue, happiness, tears, and I one point I think my heart literally stopped beating. So many bloggers, readers and even authors ask for books that are like nothing they've ever read. This, my book friends, is that book. It's a New Adult Mystery...and mysterious it is.

The book starts with Ann Leigh, AKA Ana Lisa, in a dream-like state. Reading those first few chapters was tough for me as I wasn't sure about the whole premise of the story. I kept thinking, 'where is this going? This better not end lame.' But the weird thing was - I just couldn't stop reading it! I couldn't put it down. Like all those eCards - 'Just one more chapter'. That was totally me!! Ana feels like she doesn't know who she is. She awakes from a 'nap' and she's in Italy, she knows enough Italian to get the gist of a conversation and communicate back, yet she was dreaming or having a flashback of a time in Nebraska.

From the very first sentence of The Making of Nebraska Brown by Louise Caiola, I knew I had stumbled across one of those rare-finds in fiction: Beautifully Written, Sharply Honest, Poignant. And as I continued to read, this book proved to be every bit as brilliant as the opening lines. The delivery? Intelligently executed. The characters? Utterly engrossing. With each turn of the page I was getting hungrier to learn the truth. And the truth came, blow by devastating blow.

The story centers on a small-town Nebraskan girl—Ann Leigh— dreaming of escaping to big screens of Hollywood but destined to marry a boy with a missing nub for a finger instead. Their relationship is everything young love is: uncomfortable, uncertain and, at times, disgusting. Convenient, passionate, confusing, and foolish. But something awful has happened, and Ann Leigh isn’t Anne Leigh anymore. She’s Ana Lisa of Italy. A woman with no past. No memories. Perhaps she’d been Ana Lisa all along. As the story continues, you want to know the truth of her past. Who she really is, where she really comes from, and why she really left. But by time you learn those answers, there are new questions that have arisen. Questions that are painful to ask and even more painful to have answered.

Many times when a book starts off so remarkable, it is bound to lose momentum. But not so with The Making of Nebraska Brown. Louise Caiola’s story is a steam roller of emotion, and the tension builds ever further with each turn of the page. Suspenseful, engaging, the story pulls its cloak around you and wraps you in Ann Leigh’s plight. You are so immersed in this story that you are drowning in it. This story is an ocean, and you are underwater and everything outside of this place is muted.

First off, let me be clear that this was an ARC that was gifted to me for an early review.

Second, I love, love, loved! this book. There is so much I loved about this story that it's going to be hard to think of everything and mention here.

The author's style of writing kept me engaged. It was like sitting down with Ann over a glass of wine after not seeing her in several years. I was her very best, long lost friend playing catch up in the most intriguing way possible.

Miss Caiola's writing was very good about keeping me on the edge of my seat. Her ability to paint pictures with the descriptions made me feel like I was truly standing with the character, following her along as she went on an emotional journey to figure out who she was and what had happened to her memories.

This book pulled at my heart strings. I laughed in parts, cried in others, and I felt close to the character. I suspected with her, searched with her, and even came to terms with her.

I'm astounded by the writing and the story. Love, lost, betrayal and lies, hope, fear, discovery, all of these are elements within The Makings of Nebraska Brown. When it ended, I was sad. I wanted more. I wasn't ready to let go of Ann's story. This story is definitely one that will stay with me for quite some time.

I highly recommend this to anyone who loves active and engaging reads that grip you from the first word, and never leave you once the last word has been read.
