An amazing must read by Teresa Rizzo
Teresa Rizzo has taken a tough and controversial topic and written a truly compelling and wonderful novel that fairly and concisely addresses all aspects and issues surrounding it fairly and with great dignity.
She has developed some amazingly strong and relatable characters from the very beginning. Ones that the reader can fully relate to and understand. She stays consistent and their roles, feelings, views, and outlook throughout the book.
Her main story line is well written and she addresses the main topic at hand with grace, dignity, honesty, and fact. She address the multiple point of views which exist surrounding any form of stem cell research. By utilizing her characters and individuals working in the field, Teresa Rizzo, has been able to explore and address the multiple uses, potential uses, research areas that exist and are still in the designing faze, as well as several other issues candidly while never taking away from the main premise of the story, the characters, and the overall situations faced by each one. This does not change as she writes the multiple mini stories that are an offshoot of the main story. They just add to the main novel, given it a more detailed and conciseness, while also making many aspects more relatable to the reader.
The author writes with such ease and fairness while never taking away from the novel. It is an extremely well written and one which grabs and holds your attention from beginning to end. I had a horrible time putting it down for the night. It is heartbreaking at times, heartwarming, truthful, honest, realistic, relatable, and a true gem.
I have never been disappointed by any book I have read by this author, and this novel is definitely one I hold in high regard, by the author, but more importantly, in general.
I will definitely be recommending it as a must read now novel. Compelling and moving, it is a book any reader will enjoy and fall in love with. A definite 5* read.
