So Near (Liza Gyllenhaal)

Cover Image


In the aftermath of a devastating loss, Cal and Jenny Horigan's marriage is unraveling. Both are plagued by guilt, unable to seek comfort from one another. Burdened by remorse, they begin to lose sight of the love that once anchored them-together with their sense of right and wrong.

As the Horigans try different ways to deal with their pain, a new acquaintance seems to offer the support they desperately need-though at times they are unsure whether his guidance is leading them back to each other or further apart...

My Thoughts:
This was a book for mothers and daughters alike. After I read it I just HAD to pass it on to my mom. The story was thoughtful and engaging. The only negative was the beginning. I was not drawn in right away but I became attached as soon as I was. The characters were all so much like people you meet in your everyday life. They could have easily been your next door neighbor. Due to this I felt an intense connection to this book, way more so than any book has done to me lately.

The writing style was easy to read and not distracting. I would recommend this book to all women.

I give this a A and an adult rating.
