Motherless by Erin Healy  I just finished this book. I have to say it was very hard to get in to this book. But I persevered through it.
I read this book over a period of about one month. The book is mainly written through the eyes of a dad who is dead. It was hard to follow and I thought that character development would have been deeper if the book followed the living characters better. It was hard to follow sometimes. 
That said....I enjoyed the struggles that each character was experiencing. Some from things that happened when they were little, some from life journey. Families are unique and we all experience things that we are less than proud of. And when you do pass on, someone may eventually find out your secrets.  I am a firm believer that secrets kill you...they do more harm than good. Yet, I find it difficult to share things that I am less than proud of. :)  All in all, I did like Motherless. I would have liked to get inside the characters a little more. I  would like them to have better development. I like to feel characters, and sympathize with them. This book was thought provoking in life in general. Lots of food for thought. 
I would love to hear what you have to say about it! Let me know!
I have gotten this book for free from Thomas Nelson Publishers to review in my own words. I have not been paid to provide my review.
