Forgetting Ophelia: A Novel
By: Julie C. Gardner
5 out of 5 stars

The story Forgetting Ophelia: A Novel by Julie C. Gardner is an amazing book that I loved reading. It hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. It tells a story about heartbreak and betrayal however it also has parts where there is hope. I loved the character of Lia. She is a woman who has a handsome husband and a teaching job that she excels at. She is a beautiful woman who is looking forward to the honeymoon that she and Jake have plans for. Then in one evening, her world is shattered by Jake walking out. This story is a very emotional one and my emotions went up and down all the time. I found Lia to be a character that I could empathize with, what she feels and goes through. While a lot of the pain and raw emotions that she experiences has to do with being left by Jake, she also struggles with other issues. With each chapter that I read, I found myself loving Lia’s character more and more. I wanted her to find happiness. How will Lia find happiness? Is there a chance that she will take Jake back, or will she move on with her life? Read this book to find out. There are many other additional characters that you are introduced to in this story. They range from good friends with Lia, family, and some that she meets along her journey. I enjoyed the interactions and conversations between them and Lia. This is a book that I got so caught up in that I was surprised when I found myself at the end. It is an amazing story with wonderful characters. Highly recommended reading.
