Leisa and Nan have been together for ten years Their love seems rock solid But an old secret of Nan's she'd rather forget is threatening to come out and it is driving a wedge between them Leisa's mom dies and leaves uestions than answers That and a ton of other events make for a super monsoon in their lives Can they withstand the onslaughtThis is of a love story than a romance When we meet our ladies they are already a couple We have some flashbacks actually a ton of flashbacks thoughts and even an occasional flashforward regarding their backstory We see them painfully and slowly drifting apart due to Nan's mysterious behavior When the monsoon hits full force can their love be strong enough to anchor them or will the deluge tear them apart Or will it make them stronger still if they can survive it At its core the book is about the search for family and acceptance Which is the real family The family we are born with or the family we choose to surround ourselves with Its a complex tale with a variety of interesting characters and a myriad of emotions involved grief alienation fear of loss anger and distrust and how all of these emotions can oftentimes overwhelm the most important one of all love I could give this 5 stars for the complex plot and characterizations but for the many scenes all over the book where it suddenly shifts to an entirely different scene Usually these are flashbacks or thoughts of the POV character in the immediately preceding paragraph where whatever it is they're doing or thinking reminds them of something from before or from what someone said before I felt that these scenes could be better formatted maybe italics to better clue the reader in to the shift There was even one bizarre scene that was actually a flashforward Now that really threw me lol I'm not sure if the writer was striving for a different style but she doesn't write like this in her other books Personally I think with such a rich story to tell she doesn't need to do it It disturbed the flow of the story and hence this reader's emotions Fortunately the scene shifts happen often enough that it gets easier to navigate in the later chapters I also had to do a bit of work to keep up with who the different names are that come up in the story The search function of e readers are a godsend for this 44 stars

Year of the MonsoonLeisa Yeats has always defined herself by the things that are important to her – a good family a loving relationship and a meaningful job working with kids Life is good But within a span of a few weeks all of that changes She’s always known she was adopted but newly revealed lies and secrets kept by her parents make her uestion. For as much as I love Caren Werlinger this wasn't one of her better stories in my humble opinion The characters were still very mature well rounded and the writing was very poetic but this story felt like it dragged on to me I had a bit of trouble following along with the flashbacks as well but keep in mind that I was listening on audio and not reading This one just felt a bit long but I do think I would have enjoyed it in novel form rather than on audio 35 stars
