Book Review: Every Rose by Lynetta Halat

Book Review:

Every Rose by Lynetta Halat


4 stars

Michael Bang has loved Lorraina Dabney all her life. And he let her know it. Every day and with every opportunity he had. It took Lorraina a while but years after he professed his love for her, she realized that she was always his. This is where their story starts. When Lorraina reaches out to Michael as she returns home from school, they pick up where they left off.  For a few amazing months, they live the life they wished they had started out earlier. But both Michael and Lorraina’s pasts have charted a future on totally different paths. Now that they want a life together, they must both learn to live as the individuals they have become and embrace their differences as a couple.

I loved this book!  The soulful, sometimes intense Michael Bang is a character with depth and heart.  All throughout the book, there was a tinge of sadness that I couldn’t quite define. I know it was because of the reality that always seems to emerge when two lovers are such divergent individuals. Michael loved Lorraina with all his heart. She inspired him to become a better person, he saved her from her past.  Lynetta Halat has written such a moving story about love, loss and redemption. Her writing is fluent and evocative. There is feeling in every page of the book, elation and sadness and hope. When I first picked up the book, I didn’t expect to get emotionally attached to the characters. I guess I found out the hard way towards the end of the story when I had an unexpected response to its plot.  I wanted more time with Lorraina and Michael and wished that the author had explored their relationship a little bit more before the story had to end.

Every Rose is a touching account of a girl and a boy and the love that they shared over the years. It is a testament to how people can change for the better because of love. It is also symbolic of pain and suffering and the significance of compassion and forgiveness.  Lynetta Halat’s  debut novel is a love story in a real world with real people.  What a pleasant surprise this book turned out to be!
