I absolutely loved this heartbreakingly beautiful piece of writing I d give this book 10 stars if I could Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate grabbed me from the very beginning tossed my emotions around like a salad and never let go I didn t want it to end I listened to the audio version Both narrators deserve huge props for their performances I actually think this novel was enhanced by the superb narration There are two storylines going on in this novel one in 1939 and one is present day They slowly unravel and come together I thought the writing was wonderful and so were the characters in both storylines As gut wrenching as this novel is I feel it is an important story that must be read There is a bit of chick lit to the part of this story taking place in modern day I actually enjoyed the bit of romance in it but I know some diehard historically fiction fans might notPeople are comparing this to The Orphan Train In my humble opinion it s a much better bookHighly recommended
