Book Review-Write My Name Across the Sky: A Novel-Barbara O'Neal

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

What a beautifully written book about familial relationships or lack thereof. Sam and Willow are sisters but did not have the best of upbringing with their Mom a star with more then one hit album to her name. Gloria-the Mom's sister finally realized she would have to give up her free wheeling life as an airline stewardess and take care of her nieces!

Both the sisters are in the middle of problems in their lives and so is Gloria. Chapter by chapter you will learn a little more about each one and get insights into what made them into the women they are today. I was almost in tears a couple of times.

The ending is super happy with most issues resolved if not about to be. This book is so worth the read-it may seem long but it will fly by page after page--just as life does.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The USA Today bestselling author of When We Believed in Mermaids returns with a tale of two generations of women reconciling family secrets and past regrets.

Life’s beautiful for seventysomething influencer Gloria Rose, in her Upper West Side loft with rooftop garden and scores of Instagram followers—until she gets word that her old flame has been arrested for art theft and forgery, and, knowing her own involvement in his misdeeds decades earlier, decides to flee. But that plan is complicated when the nieces she raised are thrown into crises of their own.

Willow, overshadowed by her notorious singer-songwriter mother, has come home to lick her wounds on the heels of a failed album and yet another disastrous relationship. Sam, prickly and fiercely independent, is on the verge of losing not only her beloved video game company but the man she loves, thanks to her inability to keep her always-simmering anger in check.

With the FBI closing in, Willow’s career in shambles, and Sam’s tribulations reaching a peak, each of the three woman will have to reckon with and reconcile their interwoven traumas, past loves, and the looming consequences that could either destroy their futures or bring them closer than ever.
