New Review! What We Do For Love by Anne Pfeffer 4 Cranky Stars

What We Do For LoveWhat We Do For Love by Anne Pfeffer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Cranky stars

The lengths we will go to for our children are extraordinary and this book tells such a tale.
Nicole lived with her son Justin who she loved more than anything in the world. They had a very good mother and son relationship. Life on the whole was happy, she made just enough money making her pottery to keep there heads above water.

Then one day everything changed. First she was asked by a local gallery to do an art piece for them that would be at the entrance to the event and the first piece that anyone saw as they walked in. She was over the moon at last she may be recognised for her art and not just for making tea sets etc. She couldn't wait for Justin to come home from school to tell him, he would be so excited for her.
At last he returned with a girl in tow, their faces said everything. Nicole asked what the problem was to be told that the girl Daniela, was pregnant by him. There was more, she had been kicked out by her parents who apparently did not want to know. The devastation was obvious and didn't get better as time went on. Justin did not love this girl.

This is the start of a very tangled web of feelings, although a very enjoyable book I did find it a little slow going for the first part. The second part truly made up for this with the presence of Daniela's mother and her best friend for years, Mike. Emotions such as jealousy sadness, anger, love and betrayal all running rife.

Do things all work out in the end? Who knows what is right for one person may not be right for another!

I recommend this book and if you feel like me it is going a bit slow persevere as the second half is an exceptional read.
