After having read and reviewed several fictional novels by Author Uvi Poznansky, I continue to be a huge fan of her writing style. She has the mesmerizing and enchanting effect of drawing her readers into the heart and soul of her characters.
In this novel, Poznansky is mainly expressing the voice of Anita and the role she plays in the story Apart from Love: (Still Life with Memories, Volume 1 and 2) "My Own Voice" is the first installment in a three part series which creatively portrays the voices of the three main characters, Lenny, Ben his son, and Anita...Lenny's young wife who is approximately the same age as Ben. In doing so, the reader is given the opportunity to have a more in depth or private view of each of their lives from their own personal perspectives.
In the original story, Ben who is now 27 years old, "grudgingly returns home many years after the divorce of his parents, Lenny and Natasha. He finds that there is a mutual attraction between his father's young wife Anita and himself."
In Book 1, we now get to focus on Anita's colorful character with the stories of Lenny and Ben in separate editions. Anita is only a mere seventeen years of age when she becomes involved with Lenny, a much older man who is married to Natasha at the time. Anita bears a striking resemblance to Natasha although she is very rough around the edges. Lenny appears to love her but spends a great deal of his efforts trying to mold her into the image of his ex-wife who suffers from the devastating effects of Alzheimer's. The lives of Anita, Lenny, and Ben create a very intriguing portrayal of a bizarre love triangle.

I'm Not Perfect and It's Okay
There is also a great supportive cast in form of aunt Hadassa and her sisters .
Poznansky's writing style is sharp and poignant as she uncovers the deeper layers of her characters with a superb literary quality. Casually analytical and close to the bone of truth, this is an excellent and accomplished portrayal of a fascinating and captivating family situation.
Lead character Anita is a teen whose childhood offered limited career opportunities, and the under-educated youngster falls for a married man, whom she later marries. Soon after Anita becomes pregnant, she realizes Lenny cannot forget his wife whose suffering with Alzheimer's disease leaves an indelible mark on him. Anita feels secondary to Lenny's first love, Natasha, as he tries to somehow morph his current wife into his previous one. Transforming Anita into Natasha becomes a complex undertaking, as Anita is strong enough she has her own thoughts.
My Own Voice is an intimate portrayal of several characters who are faced with unusual emotions as they attempt to resolve issues. My review for this author's story and beautiful writing is inadequate, but I urge you to read the sample chapter. I believe you will be enchanted enough to buy this five star book about true love, desire, and guilt.
In "Anita," Poznansky's has created character who lingers long after the final paragraph. She makes her live through masterful use of dialect, exquisite interior monologue and attention to detail.
This is the second novel I've read by this extremely talented author.
Although this story is not a genre I would normally read, I was enthralled by Anita’s voice. Anita is a wonderful character, and the narrator: Heather Jane Hogan, has done a great job of bringing her to life. She has an amazing southern drawl, which is soothing to listen to. Her reading is intuitive, and I soon found myself immersed in Anita’s world.
I highly recommend this book not just for readers of romance fiction, but for all readers who enjoy a good story and detailed three-dimensional characters. Five stars.
