2020 has been a HUGE year for books. It’s difficult to pick just one book from all or even any specific genre but this book has stood out for me ever since I picked it up.
Liz Moore’s brilliant, heartbreaking novel 𝐋𝐨𝐧𝐠 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐑𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫 is by far my favorite read of 2020 thus far. This story cut through to my core.
The relationship between two siblings is unthreaded when one of them turns to drugs and disappears. The search by her cop sister weaves an intricate narrative into the devastating twists, turns, and unknowns that insert themselves in the hearts of loved ones affected by drug addiction.
I held onto hope as my heart broke many times over throughout the story. It’s truly a testament to the unbreakable love shared between two sisters affected by trauma and the power of grit.
