I feel that this book was so powerful and thought provoking that it almost scared me.I got it for free and was pleased that I did. Please read this book if you have or know about incest, displaced family members, or the beginning stages of Alzheimers. this author put everything into this book where you wouldn't be lost and feel as though it ran all over the place. It shows love, fear, and redemtion. Also, be very careful of what you do in the dark because it will show sooner or later in the light.

The book was a easy read, very informative, touched on a lot of subjects that the African American culture doesn't discuss. I don't want to give anything away but it's topics are such that men and women need to read.

I loved this book. Lowan Anderson writing style is wonderful. This story makes you want to climb into the book and do something about the situation. I cannot say too much, because I can not give away such a beautifully written story, but be prepared to cry. All I can say is I NEED MORE!!! I felt like I was pulled into this family. Some scenes written in graphic details. But I felt it was needed to illustrate the gravity of the situation. I just wanted to help. I need to do something. It felt so real. Ms. Anderson, Job WELL Done. You just make sure I know when part 2 is available.

Sorrow's Mate was a very heart wrenching story. The story flowed and I felt the pain of each woman in this book. Gia was a woman with more than her share of sorrow and secrets. I definitely enjoyed this book, never knowing what to expect, but never disappointed.

I cannot write a typical review for this book. First, this particular book would actually spark a great bookclub discussion. The first question would have to be
"What would you do?" As much as it would be hard to even imagine, walking in on your boyfriend having sex with someone other than you in your bed, is bad enough. But what if that person that he was having sex with was a member of your family?

That is exactly what happened when Gia walked in her home after hours of being on her feet at work, and seeing the man she loved having sex with her niece, Anita.

Now fast forward years later...

Gia marries this same man and has a baby with him.

If you think thats where this story ends, you’re in for a rude awakening, because as you can see this is just the beginning of this story.

Before you think I gave too much information on the story, read the synopsis and you will see the same thing there.

Sorrows Mate by Lowan Anderson was an excellent story. It was an easy and quick read. It was also an emotional read as well. You are sure to feel for both Anita and yes, even Gia. As hard as it is to want to hate Gia, you don't. The reason I did not give this book a 5 star is because the layout of the book was put together poorly. There was a chapter in the book that should have been put near the beginning of the book but was thrown out of sequence that made for a confusing moment in reading the book. By the time I realized what happened with this huge oversight, I had already read most of the chapter. Also, the timeframe was very unclear because the story kept switching from past to present with no clear indication of which was which. Overall though this was a very good read and like I said before would make for a great bookclub discussion.

A touching tale of all the things that can destroy a family and cause a lifetime of hurt and regret. But wait. Just when you think there's no hope, a little light shines at the end of the tunnel.
