“I finished the book a couple of days ago but couldn't directly post. I actually needed almost a week to sort my thoughts and reread some passages.
I loved the book and although the end is super sad its also one of this book that wouldn't feel right with a happy ending (although I think Alice deserved one).
It was heartbreaking how much loss she had to go trough, whos spirit wouldn't be broken after being blamed for something you can't really understand (Dodgson), hidden away and treated like some kind of dark family secret for years only to find true love which is again taken away because of things that happened years again! And than to top it of the only person who you really feel connected to dies! I think Alice came out very brave, still looking somewhat optimistic into the future and making the best of the situation!
I also loved how her middle son is just like she was as a child and how she loves him most off all, ofc if he would only have known!
And the fact that she realized how much she actually loved her husband just to lose him to, I had to put down the book because I couldn't even read on through my tears!!”
