Product Description

Product Description

The Lives Between Us is about family and love. "Blend Jodi Picoult's thought provoking writing with the magic of Danielle Steele's romance novels, and you would have The Lives Between Us."~Wally's Book Review 

Reporter Skylar Kendall has run from commitment all her life, pushing people away before they leave her, until her niece worms her way into Skye's heart and settles in tight. Skye relaxes into a career she enjoys and relishes being a doting aunt.

Then her niece becomes gravely ill. Unable to bear yet another loss, Skye is determined to find a cure, but the girl's only hope lies in the embryonic stem cell therapy Michigan Senator Edward Hastings repeatedly opposes. When Skye fails to find alternative treatment in time, she vows to end the senator's political career.

Curious about the woman behind the scathing articles on his best friend, Mark Dutton pursues Skye. Dating Mark gives her access to Hastings's life and secrets that would launch Skye's career and satisfy her need for retribution... Only she hadn't counted on falling in love.

Guilt and pain drive Skylar to avenge her niece's death. Love cracks her closed heart open wide enough for hope and compassion to take seed. Through interlacing lives, this novel deftly explores family life dynamics at all levels--unveiling the trial and tribulations of relationships, the complexities of parenthood, and the risk of hiding from it all.

Can Skye avenge the lives lost to politics at the expense of her new love and friends?

Thanks to Theresa Rizzo for the free electronic version of her book, “The Lives Between Us”.
Rizzo “runs the gamut of storytelling” in this novel. This novel is politically charged and discusses hot-button issues, while still having elements of romance, drama and suspense. The protagonist, Skylar, is a young reporter who is struggling with the illness of her young niece- an illness that she believes may easily be cured if embryonic stem cell therapy hadn’t been so strongly opposed by Senator Edward Hastings. When Skye’s niece dies, she decides to personally target the Senator and end his career. However, when she becomes romantically entangled with the Senator’s best friend and gets to understand the Senator on a personal level, things get complicated for Skye and she must decide if her career is worth jeopardizing her love life and the personal lives of those she cares about.
Rizzo’s novel is very politically charged. There is a lot of discussion over United States government and politics, in relation to stem cell therapies and research, so it is definitely not a novel to be easily glazed over. “The Lives Between Us” involves some thinking, some learning and even some personal reflection of your own beliefs. Rizzo is definitely well-researched, however it is very refreshing that the book does not play out like a school text. Her characters are relatable and lovable, and the relationships between them are natural and honest. All of the characters are portrayed in a humane light, and a reader can easily evoke sympathy for each and every one of them. Rizzo has no villains in her work, just human beings trying to make the best of things with the hands they are dealt while trying to keep their families healthy and safe.

Skylar Kendall, a Detroit journalist, has had an emotionally difficult time growing up. After losing both her parents at a young age, and living with her older sister Faith and her husband Peter, Skye has moved from job to job, unable to settle down. Spending time with her nine year old niece, Niki, seems to be the only thing that keeps her grounded.
However, when Niki falls gravely ill and requires treatment involving embryonic stem cells, Skye faces her biggest challenge, the opposition of Michigan Senator Edward Hastings. In a relationship with Edward’s friend Mark but still determined to ruin the senator’s career, Skye must decide whether to pursue this vengeful path or chose her friends and family and let the past remain in the past.
The author Theresa Rizzo contacted me directly to offer a copy of The Lives Between Us in exchange for my review. I admit that I was quite flattered by the gesture having just started reviewing and blogging that I accepted with pleasure. After reading the description I was even more intrigued, and looked forward to reading the book.
Unfortunately, soon after starting I realised that The Lives Between Us, and the storyline would not be as enjoyable as I had hoped. A potentially touching story of a family facing the medical crises of one of its members, I found the writing to be heavy handed and stilted, almost forced and not capturing appropriately the intense emotional strains that these individuals were under. The prose simply didn’t allow for me to have any sympathy for these characters although I could see the possibility of it with perhaps some additional editing.

My Review: Count me in for a book that sparks a debate on a sensitive issue and has some heart. When author Theresa Rizzo offered me her book that focuses on stem cell therapy to read and review I thought that this would be a good fit.

Rizzo brings up the hot topic of using embryonic stem cells (as well as cord blood stem cells) for medical treatment and covers several viewpoints on the issue without bogging her readers down in too much medical detail. I admit that I only knew the basics of this issue and Rizzo brought to light the many different sides and morality of this debate.

This wasn't a heavy read and actually took on a much more romantic twist that I was initially anticipating. I'm all for some romance but a little less emphasis on Skylar and Mark's love life and more focus on the emotion and ethical debate would have been my preference. The romance took more of a hold of the story towards the middle and I found it to be a bit distracting with some of the dialogue between them felt weak and didn't add to the overall plot.

My main concern with this book is Skylar. She's a hard one to get behind. I liked that she adored her family but she often came off as brash and while she does mature a little throughout the book overall she wasn't very likable. And while she had a good reason for not supporting Senator Hastings views on the stem cell issue, her deep hatred of him seemed too intense and too personal.

It was actually Senator Hastings' family that really intrigued me and, I felt, got to the heart of the ethical and emotional results of stem cell use. The Senator, his son and especially his wife Noelle were my favourite characters and felt like they handled the issue with heart and believable emotion.

The ending.
