Take Care, Sara is a heartbreaking story. It starts out at the pits of Sara's despair over the death of her husband and takes us on a journey of pain, realization and healing. This is a beautifully written book that really tugs at some raw emotions. The main character's are Sara and Lincoln--the brother-in-law.
What I liked about this book is that it doesn't apologize. It doesn't make excuses for some of the really dark depths Sara sinks to because that is just the way it is. She's mourning. Sometimes you want to hate her, sometimes you just wish you could reach into the pages and hug her, tell her it will all be alright.
In the end she is very deeply human and very flawed, and I think that's what gets you so invested in her story.
I've never suffered a loss like the one Sara or Lincoln did, but to me the emotions rang very true.
The book moves along slowly at times and is very internalized, which may turn off some readers. But, in the end, it's a well-written book. Just be prepared to shed some tears.
I'm giving Take Care, Sara 5 out of 5 stars.
