Lily Love by Maggi Myers

Lily LoveLily Love by Maggi Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is a book I HAVE to give 5 stars for.

Its true to life, its honest, it got inside both parents minds, mostly the Mother as she spent more time with Lily.

Picture this, Caroline, the Mother of Lily. Married to a husband she not only loves but adores.
As Lily grows a little, Caroline notices some milestones in Lily that is most definitely not there like in other children her age, and as time goes on, we see Lily Love developing not only some "syndromes" that the medics cannot put a name to, but I see her developing a little personality within the pages.

I loved how this author got right inside the Mother's head and heart. Like anyone who has a disabled person and is honest, there are times when you say "Where is my life gone, just where is ME?"

As Lily Love needed her more and more her husband left.

Retrospect is brilliant, as she later learns that she not only gave 100% to Lily, she gave much more and in returned lost her love and support. But she carries on.

Her husband is there to help look after Lily. But its too late for any reconcilliations.

When Caroline meets Tate, unexpected things happen, things come to light.

Things progress.

Lily is always and always will be her first top main concern, she needs her.

I was engrossed in this book as it could relate to anyone undergoing any difficulties getting a "name" for any disibility/function, undergoing tests and things showing zilch. Its frustrating. When you know what is wrong, at least you can move forward and handle things differently, the unknowing is worse than the knowing.

Maggie Myers has written a very thought provoking book. Loved it!

I would like to thank Amazon Publishing for supplying me with a complimentary copy to read and review 

Caroline used to have it all: she was madly in love with her husband, Peter, and they worshiped their beautiful baby girl. But as Lily grows into a toddler, Caroline notices that her daughter seems to live and act with a disconnect, and soon the perfect future Caroline had envisioned, along with her marriage, begin to crumble. Now she and Peter are no longer lovers, they're plaintiffs in the throes of divorce while still struggling to care for Lily. After years of blame and overwhelming despair, Caroline's chance encounter with a stranger at University Hospital opens her eyes to the prospect of accepting new support, new loves, and new dreams.

From the acclaimed author of "The Final Piece" comes a story of a family broken and unable to cope with a daughter's disability. And a mother who finds that letting go of the life she imagined may be the only way to get to the life she was meant for
