Oh wow, this book…! Touching, emotional, moving. It affected me very deeply and I thought about the themes long after I’d finished reading the book.
Just a note of warning: Before I Let You Go is a very heavy book with heavy topics. It is about addiction, how it tests the bond between families, its affect on families, and most predominantly, babies who are born to addicted mothers.
This is heavy reading here, but also important reading that I think shows how we as a society need to reach out and help people who are addicted rather than judge and ostracize them.
A heartbreaking, beautiful and powerful story. This one gets all the stars from me.
