My Review: The LoveLock by Eichin Chang-Lim

The LoveLock

Overview

This is the first book I have read by Eichin Chang-Lim, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. The LoveLock has reached into my soul and touched me deeper than I ever remember a book doing. The Author’s prose is laced with the deep-seeded knowledge of what it is to lose someone you care about. But the story isn’t only about loss, it’s about love and the courage to keep love and hope alive no matter what.

Captivating and Compelling

Upon The LoveLock’s pages, Ms Chang-Lim’s characters become real and familiar. I believe from page one I related so strongly to Violet not from losing a twin or a sibling, but just from the emphatic knowledge of how it feels to be rejected and still seek to have that person in your life. The Author’s writing is beautiful and  touching, captivating and compelling.

Closure

I was elated at the end as these two people, so injured by loss as children embrace their pain and rise above it, reaching out to others in need and from those experiences heal to become the adults they were meant to be. Yes, it’s just a story, but at the same time, it could easily be a memoir. Beautifully written, Eichin Chang-Lim. I highly recommend The LoveLock.
