Review: Ripple by E.L. Farris

Title: Ripple
Author: E.L. Farris
Publisher: CreateSpace
Genre: Young Adult
Format: E Book
Source: Promotional Book Tours
My Rating: 5
Summary: When high-powered attorney Helen Thompson discovers that her fifteen-year old daughter has been sexually assaulted, she takes drastic measures.
Finding herself in trouble, Helen must relinquish control and put her faith in a process she knows to be flawed. As a team of lawyers, therapists and women from a safe house help Helen and Phoebe find hope and healing, a sociopath lurks, waiting for his moment to strike.
A lyrical, dark fairytale that will resonate with fans of women’s literature and psychological thrillers, RIPPLE delves into the nature of evil, without seeking to provide final answers to the issue of what makes a human commit evil acts. And while the author takes readers to scary places, she ultimately shines a light on the human condition and celebrates the triumph of the human spirit in the face of great tribulation.
My Review: 
I received this book for a fair and honest review.
Due to the subject matter of this book at times it was hard to read as both a woman, and a mother. That being said though, I thought it was an amazing book.
The author really captured the emotions of all of the victims perfectly. You could feel their pain as they deal with all of the emotions surrounding the sexual abuse of Phoebe.
Helen learns the hard way what is important in life. All moms have guilt of some kind. Helen’s guilt though is something that most of us thankfully never have to deal with.
I read the Young Adult version of the book. The author I feel edited in a way to get the story across but did not go into details of the assults on Phoebe. I was thankful for that, I would not be comfortable reading the details.
