    Finding Tranquility

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a beautiful story about love, change, hope and finding yourself. It deals with some difficult topics and some parts made me almost cry, but the writing style wasn't overly emotional which I liked. There also is very little drama in this book, which worked for me. There are four different parts of which the first two take place in 2001, the first part is Brett/ Christa's point of view only, part 2 is Jess only and the later two parts are dual pov and take place in 2019. I liked the romance and seeing how these characters dealt with encountering each other again after all that time. It was well done and I liked seeing how their relationship developed, although it did feel like we missed a few pieces of their romance development. I thought the author handled the transgender topic well, showing part of the progress and also the struggles transgender people deal with. I thought the book did end rather abruptly, I would've liked a bit more time to have the last events sink in and I would've loved an epilogue to have a glimpse of what their future looks like. All in all I thought this was a great story and I am really happy I read it.

    Moving

    The emotions run the gamut in Finding Tranquility, and I felt every single one of them. At any given point, I was as likely to want to hug one of these characters as I was to want to shake the daylights out of them, Brett/Christa in particular. The thing is Brett didn't always make the wisest choices before or after becoming Christa, but the author tells the story in a way that those actions are understandable to some extent. Some more than others, but even when I disagreed, I still found the character likable. I really can't speak about the authenticity of the transgender representation here because I have no direct experience, but I am at an age where I can look back and see just how far we've come in terms of acceptance, and even how far we still need to go, and I will say that it feels like the author did her homework. A lot of this story is about Brett's journey to becoming Christa, but the big story here is, as the title claims, a love story. It's about loving the person regardless of gender and finding your happy in a world that isn't always so accepting. Gender and sexual preference aside, Finding Tranquility is a moving story about love, loss, acceptance, and forgiveness.
