My Lullaby of You by Alia Rose - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Amy is looking forward to the next chapter in her life. She's going to Chicago to study architecture, just like her father. Going to Chicago will give her a chance to see more if him. She hopes that when she's there, their bond will become stronger. However, there's a summer in her small hometown Shelby to get through first and Amy's mother has no idea what her daughter's plans for the future are yet. Amy's mother doesn't approve of Amy's father and Amy knows she isn't going to like them. Amy isn't looking forward to the long days ahead of her, but then Seth appears. Who is this mysterious guy and is it smart to form a relationship with someone when they both won't stay in town?

Seth is in Shelby to make sense of his past. He wants to talk to his father to find closure, but that isn't as easy as he hoped. His father was keeping many secrets and isn't welcoming Seth with open arms. Fortunately there's Amy to offer him some distraction. Seth might not have found what he was looking for in Shelby, but he leaves the town with plenty of new experiences. Will he be able to embrace the future now that he's faced his past?

My Lullaby of You is a wonderful story about the complexity of family, dreams and finding love in an unexpected place. I was intrigued by both Amy and Seth. They didn't have easy childhoods and their first introduction to adulthood is inevitably colored by their experiences. I was curious to find out how they'd deal with their pain and if they'd be able to move past it to have a brighter future. Alia Rose skillfully writes about their feelings, she doesn't spell everything out and leaves room for the reader to interpret, which is something I absolutely loved.

My Lullaby of You is a story about difficult relationships, forgiveness, uncovering truths and internal struggles. I liked how Alia Rose deals with her subject matter, she never makes her story too heavy and adds the exact right amount of seriousness to each chapter. Because her writing reads easily I flew through the pages of My Lullaby of You. I was captivated, enchanted and entertained. I read this beautiful book in one sitting and highly recommend it.


If you love beautiful stories about growing up and learning to love you don't want to miss My Lullaby of You.
