Indie Reader Review for The LoveLock - IRDA Winner

Personal triumphs and family tragedies mark the milestones of a young woman’s life in THE LOVELOCK.

Indie Reader Discovery Award Winner

Life growing up in suburban San Diego couldn’t have been more pleasant for Violet and her twin sister Amber. With two loving parents and every opportunity in the world within her reach she saw nothing but blue skies ahead of her. But when her sister takes fatally ill on a vacation to Hawaii, Violet experiences the first of many pitfalls that come with life in the real world. Still Violet always manages to find a silver lining in every situation. At her sister’s funeral she connects with a boy named Dylan, a family friend who has also recently experienced loss with the passing of his mother. The two find comfort in their shared sorrow, a comfort they will carry between them for years to come. This comfort brings them together into their college years where Violet and Dylan’s relationship rekindles into a fully adult romance culminating with Dylan proposing marriage and giving Violet the titular Lovelock necklace and the promise to be hers forever.

Life changes on a dime. Few understand this painful truth quite like Violet and Dylan, former college sweethearts united by their tormented childhoods.

When we’re young and feeling invincible, unless we have cause, we don’t give a lot of thought to our health, let alone our eyes. That all changes as we age and begin to notice we aren’t seeing as clearly as we once did, or we need stronger glasses, or one eye seems blurrier than the other. That’s what makes a book like Your Precious Sight by Dr. Eichin Chang-Lim a “must read”. Quite frankly, waiting until we have a reason to read it might just be too late. Dr. Chang-Lim’s book is not only a delight, thanks to the conversational style and a copious number of true-life anecdotes, but more importantly for the information it provides in easy-to-understand layman’s terms.
