Book review: The Glass boxes in which we live, by B. Sylvie

| Gifted | romance |


Rating: 4 out of 5.

A beautiful and emotional romance, very relevant and updated with recent world issues and which really brings out important elements of family, race and cultural diversity. The story is told in alternating timelines between the present and the past, which gives us a deeper insight to the backstory of the two main characters.

I like Alienor’s point of views the most, I was able to relate to her even though there is a big age difference between us, I went through similar experiences in my life (not only the fact I am also divorced) while moving around between America and Europe throughout my life.  I found it hilarious her comments of the cultural differences and difficulties she encountered. Alienor has these two kids, Alex & Ben, that were funny and adorable. I really admire Alienor’s character, being a single (recently divorced) mom of two moving to a different country alone with her children takes a lot of courage, and you can see that she puts her family first always. 


I love the romance between her and Wesley, and how these two are so different yet their dialogues were so captivating. Wesley is able to make his way into my heart, just by the way he loves her family. I was rooting the entire time for these two to end up together.

My favorite quote: ” YOU have all the colors of love. You have the colors of our love”
