Angie’s review on Goodreads:
“Well, I didn’t see that coming…I could not put this book down. Maybe it was because my own broken heart found comfort in the story. It wasn’t just a romance book. The characters had depth and were relatable.
I’m kinda sad I finished reading it.”

Both Sides of Love (2014)
2019 IAN Book of the Year Awards Finalist in Women’s Fiction
Twenty-one-year-old Lizzie Adler had everything a young woman could want: she was beautiful, bright, and had both a faithful best friend and a handsome boyfriend with whom she was deeply in love. In one fell swoop, calamity strikes, stripping Lizzie of all that she holds dear. While driving with her best friend, Nan, en route to a party, Lizzie collides with another car.
The results are devastating: Nan doesn’t survive the accident, while Lizzie is forever crippled and disfigured. Lizzie undergoes scores of surgeries and endures ample physical therapy, which ultimately leave her with a face and body she can no longer recognize.
Meanwhile, Daniel has just recently left Lizzie to stay with his ailing grandparents in England. He intended to return to her arms after just one summer. Little did he know that, after months of silence from his beloved, he would receive a cold, curt break-up letter, devoid of explanation.
Unable to bear the pain brought on by memories of who she used to be, Lizzie casts her former identity aside forever and decides to go by the name of Beth.
Fast forward twelve years, and Beth is now an almost-happily-married stay-at-home mom with a five-year-old daughter, Stacy. Boredom and pressure from her husband, Alan prompt Beth to join Stacy’s school’s PTA. There, she meets Noreen: the first woman she is able to connect with since Nan’s death so many years ago. Beth is delighted to have finally found someone with whom to face the travails of womanhood.
Unfortunately, friendship with Noreen comes at an unexpected, and painfully high, price.
Both Sides of Love is the poignant story of a woman struggling to love and accept who she is while vigilantly guarding a painful secret from her best friend – a secret that would ultimately tear their families apart.
