One of the few things I have to thank to this crazy Pandemic/Quarantine time it’s my trying to get more involved in reviewing and reading more diversely when it comes to requested reviews… Plus I also got to meet some pretty cool people, while doing this.. Silver lining I guess… Not all has to be bad right?
I have one such book.. One that I wouldn’t have chosen myself to be honest and that would have been a shame because it’s a powerful book with a great message…
Beth: A legacy of Love by Jeffery Young
Adolescence is rough… It’s a time in our lives when We believe We are invincible, untouchable, We are The center of The Universe and We don’t need anything … We just want to have fun and experience whatever trend there is At The time… Music, drugs, excess…
This book gives you a hint of What It was like to be a teenage girl in The 70’s … With all I mentioned above … Until reality strikes and you ( or more like our main protagonists Beth and Marjorie ) in The face in The shape of disease… You are not impervious to everything after all.. And you need Faith to sustain you when your life and your best friends’ life is being consumed and There’s nothing you can do About It.
It’s a truly hard-hitting book, and yet It is filler with Hope, friendship and Love. The 70’s atmosphere is very well portrait and The writing is beautiful … Just like The message It leaves us with.. I don’t want to get into too much detail because this book has to be experienced and not told.. Just know that you’ll be getting an impactful storyline, great atmosphere and very well developped and relatable characters.
I hope I got you interested in checking it out because it’s truly worth the time, don’t forget that if you want to help me keep on creating content and making you at least smile a bit with my quirky posts and ranty opinions just visit my Ko-fi page or Paypal.me/cbookramblings and support my work..
