I just finished reading Leaving Eva by Jennifer Sivec. Leaving Eva is a dark troubling story that truly hits your heart. This book opens your heart and eyes to the darker side of humans. It touches on drug use, murder, child abuse, Alzheimers, among others. Leaving Eva truly makes you feel. It is beautifully written. You root for Brynn.
This story makes you question how you would deal with everything that this child/young woman was thrown in to. It very rare that I find a book that leaves me in tears and has me begging for more. Jennifer has brought all these darker sides to the light in such a manner that you feel as if you are truly living through the scenes with her. You sympathize and root for Brynn….. and eventually you understand what makes Eva who she is.
