The Mothers, Brit Bennett
I came into this book knowing nothing. I didn’t read the jacket. I didn’t look at reviews. I just dove in head first.In the beginning I was confused by the POV. It felt disconnected.
My feeling was wrong. Guys. I was wrong. I felt disconnected, but I was so into the story and characters, that I devoured this book.
About halfway in, I was in love with the storytelling and unique POV. I couldn’t put the book down. Nadia and Aubrey were such robust and engaging characters. The mothers, with their iconic church lady gossip and observations, added another complex layer to this beautiful story.
I did not want it to end.
