***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***

 Let me first start by saying that drug addiction is hard.  It’s a hard demon to be around, a hard demon to witness and an even harder demon to live with.  BUT in this stand alone novel by Michelle Lynn it becomes especially hard for the main characters because they deal with the loss of one, the addiction of another and the beautiful outcome of the union.

Adam’s sister dies from her drug addiction, Leah’s brother returns battling his and needs help with the baby girl the two had.  Can Adam and Leah come together to raise Dani?  Will the emotions blur?  Will the beautiful spirit of their niece bring the family together and help them heal?

The book was well written.  It touched on a lot of emotions and demons that are prevalent during and after a battle of addiction.  The content yes is for mature audiences but it’s not over the top.  The characters are 3 dimensional and real and the contemporary world of a drug user is not unrealistic.  The issues are there and are beautifully flawed.  Michelle evoked emotions that a reader forgets that they have.  The book is gut wrenching and emotional.

Well done Michelle.  I tip my Nerd Girl Hat to you.
