My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Due to the sins of her father, Rose, her mother, her daughter Lucy, and eventually Lucy’s children will never have a normal life. Because those sins were covered up, the secrets threaten to tear apart her very soul. Can she outrun her secrets, and can her daughter put her life back together when it all seems to be falling apart.
Eden’s Apple is a tale of childhood trauma and redemption, although no redemption without heartbreak. I thought the internal monologue of Rose was devastatingly accurate, although honestly Lucy’s character escaped me a bit at times. I had a harder time accepting her changes than the other characters, who started out with some redeeming qualities, whereas she was pretty self absorbed from minute one. I enjoyed the pace of the book and the lilting tone, and really enjoyed the exploration of emotions and inner monologue. I think that if you have ever suffered childhood trauma particularly this book will resonate and hopefully refresh your soul.
