Book Review - Forgive Yourself by Allie Sager

Monday, November 8, 2010

There is one thing you need to remember when deciding whether or not to read Forgive Yourself by Allie Sager, do not judge a book by it's cover. When I received Forgive Yourself for review I was not impressed at first glance but once I started actually reading it things turned around fast. The characters speak they do not just lie flat there on the page, and when they speak they draw you into this short but surprisingly weighty novel.


Evocative and filled with a rare compassion, Forgive Yourself by new author Allie Sager blends supernatural dreamscapes with affairs of the heart and unforgivable betrayal. Smart and telling, the author enlists a stunning and heartfelt prose to weave one woman’s reluctant love story. On the surface to the outside world, Sammy Logan might appear to be a woman who has it all, but the fact is she is married to a man who has never truly forgiven her for a past she had no control over. Haunted each day by the vivid secret, she turns to Conner Simpson, a man she has always loved—the man without question who makes her feel complete. Caught on the brink, confused, but certainly not alone, Sammy must first forgive herself, make peace with the dark demons of her past and her mystic ancestral visions before she can truly be free.
