Although Lilah’s story in Unbelievable is much different than that of Maggie, from Unlovable, there is a thread that connects them together. It is not the fact that their stories include the same cast of characters. It lies in the fact that they share a need to be set free from the lives they have lived.
Gammon does a wonderful job balancing desperation, guilt, fear, resignation and longing as she tells Lilah’s story. Though I feel a bit less sympathy for this character, I am full of emotion from the book. The plot devices used by Gammon are very effective.
This is a book that is impossible to put down, so plan to read straight through. It is a moving story.
