4.0 out of 5 stars Loss and Pain!, September 1, 2012
This review is from: Those We Love Most (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is filled with pain, loss, and suffering which made it almost impossible to stay in the story. For me, someone who reads fairly quickly...I had a very hard time continuing the story and not putting the book down over and over again. Those we Love Most is absolutely thought provoking and very well written, but I believe it would have benefitted from some lighter moments. For this reason alone I gave this book 4 stars.

Maura is first and foremost a mother who loves her children unconditionally! Maura is also a woman in a marriage that seems to have derailed and sadly she loses focus on what is important. One very tragic accident brings Mauras life and the lives of her family to a screeching halt. The aftermath of the tragedy exposes the weakness of not only Maura, but her husband, mom and dad. Woodruff gets across eloquently that there is nothing like tragedy to make you see the important things in life....most importantly those that you love.

I really struggled with this review as I always like to put in a description of the actual plot, but in this case I felt to do that would be to give away too much of the story that you really must read to get the full impact. I will say this and you will certainly understand once you read the book....I would be highly interested in reading the story of Alex and how he deals witn what happened and how that shapes his adult life.

I too, would like to know more about what happened to Alex. His character was not developed fully enough for my liking. Maybe there is another novel there for Ms. Woodruff. My heart went out to him more than the other characters in this novel.

I had the audio--and it was so unrelievedly drab and sad, I quit. They had a before and after moment--what happened before is different than everything after. You have to find some way to process that. I had one. Not everyone does. But I just didn't love the personalities of the people enough to really care if they worked it out or not. They were sure hard on that Alex--it was an accident!
