Comments Finding Lily

  • Vicki

    This is one of the most emotional books I’ve ever read. I could feel Claire’s pain, and it brought back memories of when my sister lost her baby when he was a few months old. I could see the pain my sister felt in Claire.Her emotions were so raw, and she had to cope in the only way she could, which was to move to the lighthouse she had visited many times as a child. She felt a connection there, and that gave her a bit of comfort, and ultimately helped her heal.I love the beach and lighthouse [...]

    The idea was interesting, but I felt a lack of connection to the main characters and some of the plot points were unrealistic which detracted from the story. There was nice use of imagery though. Full review to come soon. *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*

    Finding Lily by Lisa D. Ellis is a very emotional story that is very likely to break your heart and yet ultimately offer hope. Claire and her husband Jim had anxiously awaited the birth of their first child Lily and are devastated when they lose her shortly after she is born. Everywhere Claire turns there are reminders of her baby girl and she outwardly grieves. She cries and is unmotivated to do anything at all.

    This story is hauntingly sad and eerie. It is also one of the most heartfelt books I have read. The plot is very simple but the writing is very complex. This book was so honest and raw it was almost painful to read at times. I love sad books so this story was really just the thing for me. My daughter and I are so close now to have lived a life without her I wonder what I would have felt if I too had lost my only child.The character development is amazing. The author really gets into the heart of [...]

    Review in EnglishReview in SpanishFinding Lily begins with a tragic event: Lily, Claire and Jim’s baby, dies when she only has lived for a few hours. Claire can’t face all the pain she feels, so she decides to go to a friend’s house in a seaside village, next to a lighthouse. This village is special for Claire because she has gone there every summer since she was a little girl, and she also met Jim there for the first time, so it seems to be the perfect place to stay for a time and think a [...]

    Finding Lily is an amazing book. It is hard to imagine how one might react to the imaginable pain of losing a child. I, myself, would be destroyed. The author brought you to the core of Claire's heartbreak with her words. She crafted a well written story that gave the reader the opportunity to become a close friend of Claire, and as that close friend, allowed the reader to suffer through her loss along with her, as well as her healing. I think that God helps us heal in a way that only the person [...]

    Here is the story of the pain one woman experiences after the loss of her newborn just hours after she is born. A birth defect takes the small life as she enjoys the warmth and comfort of her mother's arms. Now, the parents have to cope with the loss.Let me tell you that this is an emotional read. I struggled with getting through it only because I'd find myself crying. Then I'd put the book aside and pick it up the next day. I tend to get very involved in the stories I read.The POV is from the g [...]

    One of the most heartbreaking occurrences in life is to lose a child. While the storyline brought me to tears, I followed Claire as she struggled to grasp the inevitable, her crumbling marriage, her grief and her future. Who could really see what their future will be when they have lost something as close to their soul in nature so drastically? I loved the flow of Lisa’s writing style and how she capitalized on the exploration of grief and loss and how it affects one’s life, relationships an [...]

    In the interest of full disclosure, I received a free copy of Lisa D. Ellis' debut novel "Finding Lily."This short novel is narrated by Claire, a woman who grieves the loss of her newborn baby by running off to live in a friend's lighthouse. She is torn apart by her loss and angry with her husband Jim who grieves in a totally different manner. There is a solid emotional core to the book, which is well-written. The characters are interesting, particularly the secondary characters, but I wish they [...]
