Book Review: TWENTY (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) by @debralandwehrengle
After the death of both her daughter and her mother as well as a divorce, Meg feels “done” with life and takes “magic” green pills that will end her life in twenty days. As she decides how to live her last remaining days, she rediscovers what she loves about life. Will she be able to reverse the affects of the magic pills before it’s too late? Or, is she resigned to facing her fate? “This is one hell of a time to fall in love with my life.” Wow. This story was powerful, emotional, and thought provoking. The portrayal of grief was palpable and raw. I was brought to tears several times. I loved that the main character’s love of flowers was woven into the story, especially since it reminded me a little bit of another beloved book, The Language of Flowers (5 stars). Lastly, I am left in awe that a short, 193 page story could have affected me so profoundly while also evoking so much hope for the future. This book truly touched my heart.
