Twelve HousesTwelve Houses by Olga Soaje
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In this engaging tale we follow the difficult and emotional journey of Amelia Weiss who after 35 years of marriage finds herself a widow. Understandably the grief affects her profoundly, work becomes impossible and other family relationships suffer. Before long a crossroads is reached where important decisions that will decide Amelia’s future path have to be made.

As I followed the life altering journey she takes I could not help but be moved by her plight, I found myself heavily invested in the book as a result, it really struck a chord with me and I feel I will not forget it any time soon. This was a really complex and difficult subject to write about, it needed to be handled with extreme care and in my opinion it was. Olga Soaje really has shown off her literary talents here and I’m looking forward to future work from her.

Overall this powerful book will have a profound effect on all who read it, rarely can writing cause such a variety of emotions but this is no ordinary book, it is one that should be celebrated for the brilliance it contains.
