I got to the point where I just couldn't put this book down and was desperate to see a happy ending, it's such a heart-wrenching but also heart-warming story that really grips you and I would definitely read another one of Em's stories.
I just have to say wow! This book was a very heartbreaking and emotional. To not be given any choices in your own life. This book pulled my heart into a million pieces.
What a sensational debut that was a pleasure to read.
I can honestly say that it is a very long time since I have been so emotionally involved in a book.
Em Muslin pours her feelings into this book and they materialise into vivid images for the reader.
A fine debut and I look forward to reading more from her.
This book is a real page turner, it will toy with your emotions and have you reaching for the tissues. Em has written a truly compelling story that will tug at your heart strings.
A stirring, emotional and heart-wrenching tale that stands shoulder to shoulder with some of Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain’s best work, Em Muslin’s stunning debut novel, Before You Were Mine, is a book sure to linger in your mind long after you turn the last page.
