Hannah Beckerman has written a supremely emotional story seriously this book should come with a box of Kleenex This book did not break my heart it tore it out of my chest chewed it up spit it out stomped on it a couple times and then slammed it against the wall When I finish the book I dried my tears took a deep breath and just sat there uietly and thought It is days later now and I m still thinking about it This book was a poignant look at one family s journey to healing Sisters Lily and Jess have been estranged for over 30 years something happened all those decades ago and one sister is not able to forgive the other Their mother Audrey is now ill and wants to find a way for her daughters to reconnect she has two 17 year old granddaughters who don t even know each other But after decades of secrets and hurt will these sisters even be able to be in the same room I m going to be honest I have no idea if I liked this book or not It moved me and had a profound effect on me but it was brutal This is really a book that begs to be discussed so if you have read this please message me I still have so many uestions I still cannot understand why Audrey just didn t force the issue and have her daughters talk things out I cannot imagine I d allow my kids not to speak to one another for 30 years This was a family that had gone through so much tragedy they really would have benefited from the support of one another and probably some good therapy Miss Beckermen s evocative storytelling was simultaneously beautiful and agonizing Life is hard and this book does not pull any punches I don t usually add trigger warnings but this book deals with a lot of serious issues including illness miscarriage and suicideThis book in emojis A big thanks to William Morrow for my copy of this book

Hannah Beckerman Å 0 Free download Read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Å Hannah Beckerman Characters If Only I Could Tell You Hannah Beckerman pens a life affirming novel that tells the story of a family divided and the secret that  can possibly unite them a must for fans of This Is UsAudrey knows that life is filled with ups and downs but she can’t help feeling like she’s been dealt than her fair share as she’s watched her family come undone over the years Her dream as a mother had been for her daughters Jess and Lily to be as close as only sis. Trigger warning this book talks about serious illness miscarriage suicideIf Only I Could Tell You is a book everyone talked about still in 2018 even though it officially came out few days agoMany bloggers said it will be on most people favourite lists for 2019 how emotional and touching it was and now when the book is released it s Goodreads page is full of positive 5 and 4 stars reviewsI am aware that I am in minority here but I have to say I didn t like this story as much as others I mean I do appreciate it and I do think it was a touching story that talks about so many serious subjects that happen every day and need to be talked about but I needed some hope from itI read books to feel better I am aware that life is not beautiful and I also like to read serious book and hard books but I like when books have at least one positive thing in the story a little silver lining hidden between pagesThis book had noneIt was like a punch in the face filled with all the negative things life can bring with one tragedy after another And just when the story punched me so hard I was mentally lying on the floor and I needed that last hope towards the end it kicked me once again and walked awayOkay I know I m exaggerating but I hope you got what I meanThe story follows two sisters Jess and Lily who have no connection to each other because Jess blames Lily for something that happened in their past and can t ever forgive herThe third character is their mother Audrey who wants to make things right heal their family before she says her final goodbyeThat is all you have to know before going into the story because there is so many tragic things that happen in this story I don t think any premise can prepare readers for what s insideSo many events from the book can be triggering so be aware of that Miscarriage suicide illness just to name the fewThere was one scene that described miscarriage in such a detailed way that it made me weak I had to stop reading skip some pages and then after some time I was ready to continue with the storyThe story is written in third person following all three main characters perspectivesI think Hannah Beckerman is good author and I understand why people like her work but in all honesty I don t think she s the author I ll come back to At least not in this point of my lifeHowever I have a need to stress out once again that this book is loved by so many readersIf I should recommend it I would to readers who like to read tragic and realistic stories Read this and reviews on my blog
