Copyright: A Novel by Lori Lesko
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
How would you feel if your written manuscript is stolen? Years of hard work and labor goes down the drain in just one minute. And how would you feel, if you find your book in a bookstore, under someone else’s name?
Yes, this is how Amber Tyler feels, when the writer's worst nightmare becomes a reality. We see how in just one day, the heroine faces tragedy upon tragedy and our inner- writer is horrified with the events taking place. We can easily sympathize with her. Her health, her family and her career, everything goes down by just a heart attack.
The writer Lori Lesko is like a magician, captivating us with her simple phrases and making us feel the same things that a character is feeling. The characters are powerful and hold their positions perfectly. I love how easily she has described the Lesbian relationship of the heroine with her lover Karen, without any hesitation of the traditional society. Even though the characters are not perfect (what with the heroine being an alcohol addict with a lot of issues) the idea of a perfect family is unique and new (Lesbian couple and two kids, Danny & Kira).
The plot is a strong and continuous one. The author unfolds the story Step-By-Step and doesn’t confuse the reader. We feel heartbroken with whatever happens to the heroine and how the person she trusts, actually betrays her. We all feel proud, when she confronts the antagonist and is saved by her son.
In the end Lori shows that no matter what situation you are in, it is your family and your loved ones who will bring you back to your life, support you and stand by your side. It took a little time for the heroine to set up her priorities straight and to bring her life back on the line but throughout the novel the readers are supporting her. She is like a real life individual, who makes mistakes and wrong decisions but in the end will always have a lot of supporters, when she gets back on the track.
The story was intense. Sometimes you would feel frustrated at the heroine for her choices and sometimes you would wait for her to take a next step, praying all the time to make things right for her.
It is truly a heart wrenching Psychological Thriller – that will give you an amazing roller coaster ride. It is a “must-read” book for all the readers, bookies and bookworm. I will give it 4/5 stars. Great Book!
