Losing Us by Gloria Davidson Marlow takes place in Key West in Miami. The main characters are Olivia and Daniel Carson, Oliver and Sylvia Darlington, Aunt Junie, Corliss, Dianna, Opal Horowitz, and Harry Tyndale. The story picks up the pace with unexpected discoveries and the characters' reactions to these. The author brings to light how people react when their safe world is shaken by unexpected and shocking incidents. In Losing Us, the author shows how mean and petty people can be, how they must find their own way back to their life, and that they are the only ones who can put things back together no matter what the circumstances are for the breakdown in the beginning. However, some circumstances are worse than others.
The twist in the tail at the end makes the reader think that sometimes people behave like school children in a playground who cannot get their own way and will then pout and throw temper tantrums. Losing Us is well worth reading especially after having suffered a loss and the different reactions that are taken. Gloria Davidson Marlow has taken a love story and put her own unusual spin on the tale, which held my attention from beginning to end. Thank you Gloria for a lovely, interesting, and inspiring read. Losing Us is well-written and thoroughly enjoyable and the lessons I learned from it will stay with me for a long time.
