Book Review – Strong Enough

Strong Enough by Ellen Harger

A captivating story with strong undertones of music reverberating throughout written in a clear style with interesting twists and faultless dialogue. The journeys of three women as their lives weave through each other’s, sometimes wounding and sometimes blessing – a journey of self-realization and learning to be strong.

 The main character being Whitney, a young woman with low self-esteem issues that breaks away from her old life to forge a new one as a DJ in her old hometown. Meeting again with her old high school friends, one drama queen-past roommate and the other stuck-up and seemingly harsh – Whitney is surprised as to whom turns out to be the one who betrays her and who is there when she needs them most. Whitney is also forced to make tough decisions, try and grow with big changes in the radio station and still juggle a man as well. Whitney struggled with realizing her place in the world, making connections, healing old wounds and learning to move on.

 Filled with relatable emotional turmoils and experiences, Strong Enough is skilfully written in a manner that is both intriguing and relevant. The descriptions are spot on and the setting, in a quaint Midwest town, is explained in such a way that you feel like you have lived there before.

I was hooked from the first chapter and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am looking forward to more books from this author.

**** four stars for this enjoyable read.
