When the past unexpectedly catches up with her, Brynn must decide if she will embrace it or move forward on her own. Is love and happiness within reach, or is her chance gone forever?
Losing Eva was such an emotional and touching story.The writing was great and the author did a great job with the story development.This wasn't an easy book to read.There were so many sad scenes that made me realize that everything in this world isn't what I imagined.There are cruel people out there and just because you don't know them,doesn't mean they don't exist.
The story was really intriguing and the author did a great job of keeping me on edge and describing the characters' feelings.I felt sad and desperate while reading Losing Eva.It wasn't easy not to.The characters went through so many things and the problems they faced weren't easy to overcome and forget.They were always there,a constant reminder of what happened.
I have to admit that the ending took me by surprise.I didn't expect that horrible and heart breaking twist.It was depressing and sad.The main character went through so many things and then...it was over.Just like that.But in a way,I think she found the peace that in my opinion was missing from her life.
The author's writing really drew me in because I was used to reading books told from both the characters perspectives.This was a nice and refreshing change for me.This wasn't a happily ever after story.It was heartbreaking and sad and all those things I mentioned already.But it was totally worth reading!

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember~journals, poems, short stories. I always wanted to write a novel and started several over the years, but for some reason I could never see them through to the end. Until Eva came along.
I was abandoned as a child, at about the age of 2 or 3 which I strangely never gave a lot of thought to. Then I became a mother. When my youngest child was about 2, I watched him sleeping one night as I often did. But this night, I was gripped by this heart-wrenching realization that he was about the age that I was when my parents left me. Something stirred inside of me, and eventually Eva was born. “Leaving Eva” began as a story of a girl who was heartlessly abandoned, and then her story took on a life of its own. It was no longer the story that I began, and it became something else entirely.
I’ve always been somewhat of a late bloomer, but I am happy to have finally gotten in touch with my inner Author. She’s always been there lying dormant inside of me, reflecting in other parts of my life. But now she is awake and alive, shining through me every day.
I am very fortunate to have a wonderful supportive husband, two beautiful children, and an incredible family. I have a career that is rewarding and challenging and I get to work with amazing, funny, talented people every day.
Writing has been an escape, a refuge, and an outlet for me. I feel so lucky to get to channel my energy and my creativity through my writing.
With the Eva Series left open for a possible third book, I am moving on to a couple of other projects that are currently in the works. I hope that my readers will continue to stay with me through this journey as I grow and evolve.
I am so grateful for the support I’ve received and the amazing people that I’ve encountered along the way!
