carol2585 This book has been on my tbr for pretty some time now and I finally decided to read it.

Ask Again, yes! Is a slow paced family drama which revolves around two neighbours the Gleesons family and the Stanhope family, the strong bond of friend between their children and how the tragedy of one night changed their lives forever. The book talks about many things like friends, love, mental health issue and how family history can effect one‘s currently life.

I was only going to give this book a 3 star rating at first, but ended up giving it one extra only because I was able to finish it. Though well written, its slow pace made it very boring at times. The characters were likeable but I thought the author should have done more justice to them.

The book is divided into 4 parts, the first part was quite interesting, while the remaining three just felt flat. However, the author was able the create some sort of mysterious build up in the 3rd and 4th part, which urges the reader to hang on in the hope that there would be a twist, only to be disappointed at the end. There are so many questions that were unanswered, which according to me, should have been played around with to add some sort of twist to the story like where was Brian Stanhope that night it all happened and why did he not stop her? I think that the character of Brian Stanhope should have been more developed rather than going completely silent.

Is it only me who want the know where Brian was? Or do others also feel the same? Feel free to leave a comment

Overall, a family drama with a happy ending!

My September reads. I honestly loved all of them but I‘m really excited for the new series books like A Curse So Dark and Lonely, A Court of Thorns and Roses and The Black Witch. All really great series. #circe #cinder #cityofgirls #acursesodarkandlonely #theblackwitch #askagainyes #finalgirls #thenightingale #acourtofthornsandroses

A novel about 2 neighboring families, friendship between their children, tragedy that reverberates over 4 decades, and the power of forgiveness. "We repeat what we do not repair." How can we escape the damage done to us in the past? Does the power of love and redemption make us worthy of forgiveness? This is a coming of age book which has addiction and mental health issues. Characters are well-drawn, the plot has depth with a nice pace. Recommend

Crazeedi I have this one borrowed, but I dont know if I'm going to get it read before I have to return! 3y

A wonderful family saga which swept me up and gripped me from the very first page. When Francis Gleeson and Brian Stanhope, two rookie cops in New York, first meet little could they imagine the paths theirs and their children‘s lives would, intertwined, take. Heartbreaking, sweeping in scale and ultimately redemptive this novel and its characters will stay with you long after you finish the final page. #netgalley #askagainyes
