What I'm reading: February

I picked up Between Here and April to read this month. The main character, Elizabeth, starts to look into the disappearance of her childhood friend April. She learns the tragic tale that her childhood friend and her sister were killed by their mother, who then committed suicide. As Elizabeth looks into the story further, she stirs up painful memories and hurt feelings. Elizabeth delves deeper into the life of April's mother, Adele, who had to deal with postpartum depression, something not well understood in the 1970s. The parallels between Adele and Elizabeth become more apparent. Elizabeth never finds out the true story of April's death. Heavy subject matter, but the ending felt a little unfinished to me.
