I thought a book about brain injury would be a good transition after being immersed in a lengthy trilogy. There weren’t any reader reviews for Oliver Loving: A Novel, but the description intrigued me. I was expecting a story about the struggle to reconnect with a once lost son but it was so much deeper than that. If you’ve ever wondered how a family remains so strong, how people manage to keep going when bad things happen to them? Stefan Merrill Black knows that they don’t stay strong, and how they manage to keep going is just barely, and at best, quite poorly. The baggage we carry doesn’t conveniently disappear. This story is about the Loving Family struggles to fill the rolls forced upon them while trying to figure out who they really are. The story’s end is poetry.

I just kept waiting for the story to take a redeeming turn. But I never really felt it did. All the characters were just too sad and depressing for me.
