CLG Review of Not Mine to Keep
A Story of Love Lost, Remembered, and Kept
Love Lost. Love Remembered. Love Kept. These are at the heart of YM’s novel, Not Mine to Keep. In the story, we meet Addison, a woman who knew at a young age what love was and who she would love forever. Although she loses that love, she manages to keep something close that always reminds her of it. Eventually, Addison learns that even those things you keep don’t always stay with you. I liked how YM framed the story, connecting the reader with a gripping beginning and ending that encased the heart of the story: how Addison and the love of her life came to be… and not to be. I found Not Mine to Keep to be a good read, especially because of the story’s framing and the tenderness in which YM tells the story. There were, however, some things that jarred my reading, such as sometimes not knowing who was speaking and wanting a slower pace in some places and further development of the goings on of the story.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
