In Search of Lucy: A Journey of Love and Self-Discovery ~ a rite of passage ~ 5 Stars!(Paperback and eBook)
Two sisters: one confused, depressed and suicidal, the other desperately ill but wanting to live. After no contact for years, both sisters agree to meet. We then begin our heartfelt journey with Lucy as she looks for friendship, love, understanding and forgiveness.
30 year old Lucy Lang has major problems, a lousy job, few friends and no one special enough to call her own. She leads an unfulfilled existence mainly as a result of an absentee, alcoholic mother. Lucy suffers from an internal strife and struggle making her an easily identifiable character.
In Lia Fairchild’s book she takes you on an emotional ride where the story focuses on how Lucy eventually finds herself by making a life-saving gesture to her sister.
I did enjoy this story and found the characters to be pretty realistic, with believable conversation between each of them. The reader will feel empathy towards Ms Fairchild’s characters enabling the reader to be sufficiently interested in what is going to happen next and together with Ms Fairchild's descriptive language I found each scene to be quite vivid. I recommend this book as a really good read; especially if you like what is essentially a pretty graphic rite of passage. ‘In Search of Lucy’ has all the best elements - love, a serious illness and a road to recovery where Lucy climbs out of the pit of her despair and repairs her own fragile life, finding love in the end.
