In Before We Say Goodbye an adult woman who is greiving the loss of her dead mother is given an envelope from her mother containing one thing; the address of her first love, the man her mother would never let her have. In shock, she travels to his home, planning only to stay the weekend. Two days becomes four and four becomes a summer. As time goes on, she doesn't know what is going on, can she stay with him and his daughter or should she go back to her husband, two sons, and her life. This heart-wrenching story about a woman finding out who her mother, and more importantly, who she is will glue your eyes to the page until you finish. This fiction book is so well written, you could believe that it was true.
I give it 4.5/5
