What Lies Between Us by Nayomi Munaweera is one of the most gripping books I’ve ever read. It’s dark & gritty, and more than once I thought ‘I should stop reading this’, but I had to finish it. It was like a train wreck, and I couldn’t look away. 
Trigger warning. This book includes content about sexual abuse, trauma, and severe post-partum depression.

What Lies Between Us: Book Review

The book follows the heroine of the story from her childhood in Sri Lanka, to a new life as a teenager in America. It tells her story as a new mother dealing with childhood traumas that resurface through the eyes of her child. It was a hard read for me because I have dealt with postpartum depression and anxiety. Connecting with the dark possibilities of being in that place was gut wrenching. That being said, I also felt like it was strangely therapeutic to read about someone else being in that place and being a much “worse” mother than me. It was reading this book that brought me to write this post about my struggles embracing motherhood. 

I am so impressed with Nayomi Munaweera’s writing and the way she kept me hooked. I will definitely read more from her in the future, and she might actually be one of the best writers that I’ve come across recently.

Things you should know about me. I'd always 'rather be reading', cute shoes are my jam, and I've never met a carb I didn't want to try.

I'm also a bad-ass at launching brands, and my marketing campaigns have won international recognition. I also love writing and Instagramming (that's a word now right?)
