Review: Regretting You - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends with Us comes a poignant novel about family, first love, grief, and betrayal that will touch the hearts of both mothers and daughters.

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

Regretting You
By Colleen Hoover

Review: Regretting You

With REGRETTING YOU, Colleen Hoover imparts a poignant glimpse into a tumultuous relationship between mother and daughter.

We first meet Morgan as a teen, as she’s swept up in a storm of insecurity and bad decisions. Fast forward sixteen years, and Morgan fears her daughter Clara is headed down the same path.

Clara wants to be nothing like her predictable mother, and instead flocks to her Dad, Chris, and the free-spirited Aunt Jenny. But when tragedy strikes, everything upends for both Morgan and Clara—a situation which exacerbates their worsening relationship.

Worse yet, what happened to Chris brings up questions difficult—and painful—to answer, plunging Morgan into a dark, deep place.

As the storm in their lives wreaks havoc, Morgan’s past barrels back to the present, offering her both a lifeline and clues which shed light to what’s transpired.

Meanwhile, Clara spirals into teenage rebellion, anchoring herself to a boy she’s been forbidden to see.

Before too long, everything will come to a head for both mother and daughter, as secrets and resentments come to light.

As always, Hoover’s storytelling shines with well-drawn characters and an immersive, fluent narrative. Emotions and tensions run high, as a steady beat of longing thrums throughout. Longing for a life fully owned. Longing for those who aren’t there. Longing for love lost and love desperately needed.

The pathos of the story is deeply felt, making it impossible not to devour in a single sitting.

Brimming with emotions raw and real, this is another Colleen Hoover must read.

This riff tries to capture so much of what is great about guitar. It celebrates open & barre chords, it celebrates clean and distorted single coil tones, it derives from a number of Fender-playing influences. Like guitar, I get it and it gets me. @Fender #UltraRiffContest
