Book Review: The Unbreakables by Lisa Barr
“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.” - Auguste Rodin
I don’t even have the words to discuss how deeply this book moved me. When @prose_and_palate calmly demanded that I add this to my summer tbr, I was confident it was going to be a good read, but I was NOT PREPARED for how good of a read.
Like, real talk. I had a three hour shuttle ride today and I read the ENTIRE THING on that drive, that felt like it lasted 18 seconds, and I’m still reeling from this story.
This is a story of heartbreak, yes. Of the irreversible damage that cheating in a marriage will wreak. Of the explosion of a life that you believed to be solid. Of devastation, agony and grief.
But it also a love story. Of finding yourself after not realizing you had become so lost. Of finding joy and freedom in a life that you’d never imagined for yourself. Of forgiveness, passion and ecstasy.
This book is a phenom. This book SHOULD be on your tbr if it is not now. @lisabarr18 has woven a story that will break your heart wide open, and fill you with every conceivable emotion known to man. Probably a few you didn’t know about too.
Just do yourself a favour and read this book, immediately. And then please come talk to me about it, because I have just SO MANY FEELINGS to process and I need a support group.
Lisa - congratulations on bringing something truly beautiful into the world. I cannot wait to see what you write next. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an Unbreakables list to compile. xx
