New Review! Give Me Your Answer True by Suanne Laqueur, 5 Cranky Stars

Give Me Your Answer True ("True") is Suanne Laqueur's follow-up to the wonderful The Man I Love "TMIL").  If TMIL is Erik's story, this is Daisy's.  True  is not so much a re-telling as it is a parallel narrative, filling in further pieces of the puzzle on an epic story.  

The work spans ten years before and after a soul shattering event.  True moves back and forth unpacking Daisy's story, how an act of violence effected her, sending her into a downward spiral, and ultimately, costing her nearly everything.  

We first meet Daisy Bianco, the accomplished dancer, at Lancaster University in the Theatre Department.  There she meets Erik (Fish) where the draw is instant, world changing, and a love for the ages.  

Surrounded by a group of friends, Daisy is the youngest, but a rising star.  Her stardom seems inevitable, her future assured, until a violent act turns her dreams to ashes.

There begins the climb to recovery, but ascent is almost impossible when someone is slowly dying inside. 

If you loved TMIL like we did, True is the book for you.  Suanne Laqueur has a way of drawing you into an elegant world where an inelegant act rips through the fibre of a place of beauty.  The characters in this story are real, they are relatable.  You cheer for them, laugh with them, and cry for them.  

We highly recommend Give Me Your Answer True and look forward to more from this author.
