I downloaded this book hoping that it would be something different to my usual choice of fantasy or historical novel and boy was I right to do so. I have tried many new authors on Kindle before occasionally I've been very lucky and stumbled across something fantastic but more often unfortunately I've also been very disappointed - but not in this case!
This novel is wonderful, very written and beautifully constructed, it starts slowly but its worth the wait. The plot is based around a mother, her marriage(s) and her two daughters and their lives from each perspective. What snared me was the relationship between the mother (Sarah) and her daughters (Jenna & Lindsey). Their relationship is real there is no gloss or and each speaks from their perspective, each making mistakes, each driving their own path and being unable or unwilling to see another point of view or what is happening in each other's lives.
She & I is a bang up to date contemporary novel dealing with some difficult issues which will keep you guessing to the very end. The careful writing makes you care about these characters, it's a novel I picked up and read straight through, I couldn't put it down.
