Losing Eva by Jennifer Sivec : The Blog Tour

Book: Losing Eva
Author: Jennifer Sivec
Genre:  Chick Lit/General Fiction

Brynn Michael has endured a horrific life. Heartlessly abandoned as young Eva, she was abused and victimized by the selfishness of others. Her early life renders her unable to truly let go and love.

Despite everything, she finds her inner strength and overcomes. She allows herself to trust her childhood love, Adam. With the promise of having her own family, it looks as though Brynn may finally have the happiness that always seemed unattainable.

But life takes a tragic turn and once again, Brynn is forced to face a life in turmoil. Will the arrival of a handsome stranger help turn it around or make it worse?  

When the past unexpectedly catches up with her, Brynn must decide if she will embrace it or move forward on her own. Is love and happiness within reach, or is her chance gone forever?

My Review:
Wow is the first word that comes to my mind now that I finished Losing Eva.

I’m not gonna lie..Most of the book was hard to read, because we are all human and don’t know how much we can take. I feel like Brynn’s life was cursed for some reason. She was so full of life. Yet tragedy came looking for her. She kept losing people she loved. She kept feeling betrayed by people she loved. She had so much love to give but I feel that she hasn’t had the chance to give it, because fate kept stealing them away.

I was so sad and frustrated while reading the whole book. People who didn’t deserve bad things had all the terrible things coming to them. I just believe that so many people in this book were hurt and devastated with no reason. Lives were destroyed by selfish people, who made awful decisions and never gave a damn about how those would affect the others.

To be honest, all this sadness has left me reeling. I kept thinking how in God’s name I would be able to articulate any sane sentence that actually made sense for my review.  Reviews are meant to reflect the book to the reader’s eyes. But what happens when the story is so overwhelming when you don’t even know yourself where you’re standing?

The last 2 pages gave me my answer. Hope. And Unconditional Love. That’s what Losing Eva is all about. When you love someone more than life itself, you NEVER give up. You NEVER let them go. You NEVER abandon them. And that’s what gave me the strength and the sanity I needed to write this review, despite the fact that I am in tears right now. This incredibly pure message.

I would like to finish my review with this.
I read a post about Losing Eva written by the author Jennifer Sivec. (You can find it here :   ) It just stuck with me..

“ I feel that it’s not just My book. It’s Our book..”

Author Bio:
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember~journals, poems, short stories. I always wanted to write a novel and started several over the years, but for some reason I could never see them through to the end. Until Eva came along.
I was abandoned as a child, at about the age of 2 or 3 which I strangely never gave a lot of thought to. Then I became a mother. When my youngest child was about 2, I watched him sleeping one night as I often did. But this night, I was gripped by this heart-wrenching realization that he was about the age that I was when my parents left me. Something stirred inside of me, and eventually Eva was born. “Leaving Eva” began as a story of a girl who was heartlessly abandoned, and then her story took on a life of its own. It was no longer the story that I began, and it became something else entirely.
I’ve always been somewhat of a late bloomer, but I am happy to have finally gotten in touch with my inner Author. She’s always been there lying dormant inside of me, reflecting in other parts of my life. But now she is awake and alive, shining through me every day.
I am very fortunate to have a wonderful supportive husband, two beautiful children, and an incredible family. I have a career that is rewarding and challenging and I get to work with amazing, funny, talented people every day.
Writing has been an escape, a refuge, and an outlet for me. I feel so lucky to get to channel my energy and my creativity through my writing.

With the Eva Series left open for a possible third book, I am moving on to a couple of other projects that are currently in the works. I hope that my readers will continue to stay with me through my journey as I grown and evolve.  I am so grateful for the support I’ve received and the amazing people that I’ve encountered along the way!
