Book Review: Pieces of it All

Pieces of it All by Tracy Krimmer: An alcoholic. A scarred man. A thief.

Harvey, a twenty-two-year-old high school drop-out arrives home, a brief stint in rehab behind him and ready to start his life again. Then he meets Beth and her innocence and her desire to have it all capture him completely.

A girl on the cusp of womanhood. Determined. A bright future.

Beth, a recent high school graduate among the top in her class, can’t wait to get to college and fulfill her dreams. Then she meets Harvey and with his mysterious past, he stirs feelings in her she can't ignore.

The chemistry between them is unmistakable but Harvey doesn't trust easily and refuses to divulge his past to Beth though she wants to be a part of his future.

The pieces of their lives lie broken all around them, but can Harvey put his life back together and win Beth over before she begins her new life without him? And can Beth find the strength to become the woman she wants to be without sacrificing her integrity?

This book was received in return for an honest review.

This book is about two young adults on the cusp of life changing events. Harvey and Beth meet unexpectedly at Beth's high school graduation party. He is older and has had a difficult upbringing. Beth on the other hand is academic with a stable upbringing. The chemistry between the two of them was palpable but not enough to get them through. Beth leaves for college after Harvey treats her with disregard. He then spirals downwards and ends up in prison. Beth continues on the college path.

I found the story well written and I connected to Beth and Harvey feeling sorry that more couldn't be done in the end to support Harvey. While nearing the end I kept thinking that the author couldn't possibly bring the story to a conclusion in the % I had left to read. And in my opinion she didn't. It left me wanting more and feeling unsettled because I had connected with the characters and the storyline and didn't feel that the ending did these justice. This was the only downside to the story, however, so I still give it 4 hearts.
