Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book for review. All opinions are mine.
Recently I’ve had the opportunity to read the new book, Lucy’s Worth - Part 1 by Letrise T. Carter.
Lucy’s Worth is part one of this young woman's desperate journey to find herself, while trying to make it on her own. Faced with her first true relationship, Lucy's long battle with low self-esteem will cause her to fall down a path with a dangerous man. Will Lucy be able to escape the trap that's been set for her? She's going to have to make the most important decision of her life -- because her life depends on it!
This is an intriguing book which follows the story of Lucy Mason on her journey to self-worth. Lucy is a young woman who is facing many challenges as she navigates the waters of adulthood in trying to build a life for herself. As a reader, I was cheering her on as she made her first steps into independence. However, she soon finds herself in the middle of a toxic relationship and this sends her along a difficult path. Lucy’s boyfriend is terrible.
The important issue of domestic abuse is effectively woven into this story. The author does a great job at making the characters come alive and there is a real authenticity that comes through. We get to see Lucy's family dynamics. Her relationship with her parents and her sisters provides an interesting look at Lucy's foundations as a person. We get to witness Lucy’s emotions and her thought process up close, and this offers a window into the mindset of someone going through a dysfunctional relationship like this. Lucy’s Worth is a cautionary tale, and it is a story that needs to be told.
I look forward to reading the rest of this series.
