Review & GIVEAWAY - You Were There Too

WINNER of You Were There Too:


I’m already looking forward to the day I re-read this book and experience the excitement, joy, ache, anticipation, and awe for the second time. You Were There Too is un-put-downable and sits atop my 2020 Favorites list!

I don’t want to say too much about the plot because I don’t want to ruin even the smallest detail, twist, or nuance for readers. But what I do want to say is I thoroughly enjoyed the writer’s voice, the characters she created, and the mysterious dreams facet of the story. And the emotions! Oh my. I was pulled through a multitude of them!

Mia is easy to like, and though this story includes multiple points of view, it mainly centers on her. I sympathized with her desire to have a baby. I connected with her quickly and loved that she was a creative soul married to a professional. The opposites-attract adage is true in my own life.

Harrison is an active, attentive, and complex doctor and husband. His thoughtful yet logical demeanor pairs well with Mia’s imaginative, artistic view of life. I love the humor they share, and how their comfortable relationship is tested.

Oliver is both familiar and mysterious. He exemplifies understanding, tenderness, and appeal. I was charmed by his sincerity and honesty and absorbed by his place in this story. I eagerly trekked beside him on his search for the possible meanings and outcomes of his (and Mia’s) dreams.

I’ve always had vivid dreams and I’m fascinated by how our brains continue delivering images, thoughts, fears, joys, and messages as our bodies sleep. My guess is, this story will come to mind if I have any surreptitious dreams in the future. 

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher.
