<Because of you> is a book that I didn’t read in a while. It was a suspense story and something new for me to read. But to say it right at the beginning, I liked this book a lot. This book is set up over decades and you can feel the characters growing up in the book. You notice the change in them and how some things change them more than the others.

I have fallen in love with Hannah, our main character. In my opinion,

she is one strong woman and she often gave me a feeling of wanting to protect

her. Not because she couldn’t do it herself but because of what other people

have done to her or something has happened to her. But when you look at her

life and what she’s gone through, at the end of the book, it is clear that she

is so strong. In the end, I’ve noticed that I’m in a way a lot similar to

Hannah than I thought I am. Not that I’ve went through a lot but we always put

others before ourselves and it is what hurts us in the end. Instead of thinking

about us and our own happiness, we always do our best to make others happy. I

think each reader can resonate with her.

Not only do we have a character like Hannah, but Helene has made it easy for us to feel like we are part of the books. Her descriptions of the family and friend gatherings are amazing that it makes you feel like you are with them. How often have I felt like I’m with Hannah, Sanna and Rosie, sitting around and drinking milkshakes?! Or that I’m sitting with Ella and Hannah in the small house, just listening to them talk. It is really amazing how can Helene capture this and make you feel a part of this whole story.

Not only is Hannah amazing character, but there is a big variety of different characters. Some of them you might like, some of them you might like a lot less and with some of them you might have a change of the heart while reading a book. The thing is; we all encounter people like this in our day to day life and they are not made way too fictional.

If you are in for a rollercoaster ride while reading the book, I would highly suggest you reading this book. But I have to mention few trigger warnings; rape, abuse and death. If you are not dealing with those stuff well, I’m not sure that this book is for you. If you can deal with those trigger warnings, please pick this book up and enjoy it.
