Leaving Eva, By Jennifer Sivec

Abandoned as a child, Brynn is adopted into a violent and tumultuous
world under the deceptive guise of a Mother’s love. She accidentally
discovers a secret way to survive which helps to disguise the brokeness
within. Early and often Brynn is left to fend for herself, as those who
are supposed to love and protect her most, fail.

In High
School, Brynn unexpectedly falls for sweet, handsome Adam. He tries to
teach her that she can have hope and happiness, if she only will embrace
it. As an adult, it appears as though Brynn has her life together. No
one except for Adam really knows her secret pain and history has an
unkind way of repeating itself.

Suddenly she is faced with
destroying her greatest love, and the need to confront her own fear
before it swallows her completely. In the end, Brynn discovers a truth
about herself that changes everything, and gives her the freedom to
accept the beautiful possibilities of what life can be.

*** This book contains acts of violence against a child; also drug
abuse.  If you are uncomfortable reading
that this is your heads up. ***
                While reading this story, there
were moments where I told myself I was going to put the book and stop reading
it.  And there were a couple times that I
did actually do that.  However, curiosity
did get the better of me and I couldn’t stay away from it.  By the time that I had finished the book, I
was so upset with the cliffhanger that I actually told the author that as well!
                This story touches on subjects,
such as child and drug abuse, but it does it in such a way that you could
almost learn from what has happened in the book.  Jennifer was able to write this story and
even with the topics it touched on, you wanted to learn what happened to the characters.  Brynn’s character was so well written that
even with everything that she had went through in her life; you could tell how
strong she was.
                The different characters in this
story, they each had their own demons they were fighting with and you learned
about them during the course of the story.
                My only complaint about this
book is that when Jennifer started a new chapter, there was no timeline given,
or when it was a different character talking in that chapter.  You have to read sometimes several pages into
a new chapter before you are aware of how many years have passed, or when it
was a different character talking. 
                The ending to this book was well
written and it left you wanting for more. 
It’s almost as if you want to find out what is going to happen next, and
you don’t want to wait to find out more.
