Book Review, Blog Hop and Giveaway: Momnesia

I was excited to receive a copy of “Momnesia” in exchange for a fair and honest review. Not only that, but it’s all part of a fun giveaway event called the Sizzling Winter Blog Hop & Treasure Hunt!

When I first started to read Momnesia, I wasn’t completely sure I was going to like the book. It’s outside of my normal reading genre, and the first couple of chapters moved a little slow. By the time I finished the book, I was sad to see it end and am looking forward to the sequel that the author, Lori Verni-Fogarsi, has planned.

Momnesia is the journey of a woman with many hats: wife, mother, business owner, friend, seeking to discover who she is. Her identity has become lost in the myriad of roles that she fills. I found myself empathizing with her more and more. Ms. Verni-Fogarsi has an uncanny way of delivering some of the more frustrating aspects of motherhood with intelligent humor and realistic optimism. I found myself cheering her on, eagerly awaiting the moment when she would feel fulfilled and restored.

The more I read this story, the more I realized some of my own Momnesiac tendencies. I frequently find that I sacrifice my own needs in order to care for someone or something else. While I don’t regret becoming a wife or a mom, there are times that I miss aspects of my former life. I think that’s what made it easier to relate to this character. The surprise at the end of the book absolutely made me think about how we view moms in general – and how I could have missed something so obvious. Although I’m relatively conservative and didn’t agree with everything this character explored to find herself, I can relate to her journey. Every mom owes it to herself – and her daughters – not to lose sight of the individual she is. It’s no surprise, then, that my treasure hunt clue: SANITY is something we should all work to maintain.
