Review “This Nearly Was Mine,” by Nancy Farkas
“This Nearly Was Mine,” is a work of fiction but reads a little like a memoire. The author’s writing is deeply personal, honest and emotive. I am sure most readers will relate, through their own life experiences, to some part of this story.
The journey takes the reader from the main characters first love, to marriage, children and from disappointment to celebration. Because of the authors style of writing the reader is given a window in to life that feels real, and will involve and sweep them along with the story.
From the tragedy of family, to the passion found and lost, to the disappointments and love of children, to the comfortable acceptance of long term partners and soulmates. “This Nearly Was Mine,” is a well written and well-paced novel.
I would recommend this story to romance readers, readers of memoires despite it being a work of fiction, and suggest it is probably more suitable for women readers.
