Call My Name is an emotionally yet realistic view on love and friendship.
This book explores heavy topics pertaining to women and even though I am a woman and have my own fair share of trauma, reading and hearing about other women who go through the same amazes me how strong and resilient we a women is and has to be.
I enjoyed that it spans from the 60’s, “the hippy” era until the 90’s as it was well researched.
All in all, the writing was thoughtful and I would recommend this to other women to read.
*Narrator Review: The narrator on this book did not match the emotions depicted in the characters of the book. It was hard for me to listen to a cheery voice discussing a stillbirth of a child and many other delicate topics. Therefore I would not recommend this as an audiobook*
