5.0 out of 5 starsAnother good book
Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2019
I’m very excite to read the next book as soon as it comes out. This series has been great so far.
This is my review of the audio version as posted on Audible:
Lizzie, a 19-year-old student, lives through a traumatic experience and has to not only get over her denial (with a little help from a psychologist) but also finally get courage to be open with her own mother... Will she be able to take action to prevent whatever happened to her happen to others?
This is the 5th story in The Year of Discovery series, and I think it's one of my favourites. The main character is a young woman, barely out of her teenage years, who has suffered more than she should and finally finds courage to ask for help... She's sensitive, she's broken, and yet she manages to finally find strength within herself to go on with her life...
As in all the stories in the series, the pace is fast and maybe the matters do solve themselves a bit too quickly and too smoothly but the issues those stories touch upon are important and concern a great number of women in the world. And they give us hope that one day women will be strong enough for teir voices to be heard - we only have to make this first small step into the world to start an avalanche...:)
As in all the books in the series, narration by Ms Hazen is very good. She is emotional in all the right moments and impartial in the narrative parts. And she does all the voices really well in the series, even the male ones sound rather natural:)

This will be a 12 short great book series, in 5th book May the main character is Lizzie a college student who had a devastating event happened to her and goes to Dr. Saito after urging of her friends. She has difficulty handling it all with added stress while her younger sister Margaret has to have immediate life threating surgery. Her friends Mel and Bonnie help her more than doc and Lizzie comes face to face with ex-boyfriend. Great narration and cannot wait for June as Mel will be primary character,
May (The Year of Discovery Book Five) was another great read by M.L. Hamilton. Lizzie is going to college to be a pediatric nurse and was always focused on school. She decided one day to attend a party and ended up in a guy's bed with no memory of what happened. She tries to move on but it isn't easy for her. She doesn't talk much about it but needs to open up to her family about what happened. I loved reading Lizzie's story and can't wait to read more in this series.
