Carmen Otto Reviews Sins of Our Mothers by Nicole Souza as Part of a WOW! Women on Writing Book Blog Tour


Sins of Our Mothers by Nicole Souza

I'm excited to review Nicole Souza's book Sins of Our Mothers as part of a WOW! Women on Writing book blog tour. 

First, here is a little bit about Sins of Our Mothers:

It has been fifteen hundred years since the solar flare devastation of the Global Catastrophe. Due to the radioactivity in the harvesting fields, society dismisses its defective children as nothing more than flawed products of the malfunctioned seeds in the field. 

But Lyratelle, a hyper-observant musical prodigy, believes these “defects” are intelligent, particularly her own sibling, the youngest child of her impervious mother. Abandoning her dream career, Lyratelle climbs the bureaucratic ladder to run the Defect Research Center, where she can safeguard the child. 

With an underground team of women who share her uncertainties, Lyratelle unearths the Old History truth that womankind’s survival actually hinges on the existence of these defects. 

When General Sarah Love, the city’s most powerful advocate against the defects, detects Lyratelle’s sympathy toward the creatures, she threatens the life of Lyratelle’s sibling. Now Lyratelle’s desperate attempt to save this child endangers everyone she loves—her team, her family, even the existence of the defects themselves.

Sins of Our Mothers is available to purchase on AmazonBarnes and Noble, and You can also add this to your GoodReads reading list.

I thoroughly enjoyed Sins of Our Mothers by Nicole Souza. This was the first time I read any books by this author but based on her writing style, I would definitely be interested in reading more of her work. In my opinion I felt like I fully understood the thoughts of each character and that pulled me into the story. The dialogue was very believable and added to the experience overall. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and an unpredictable read. My mom always asks me what I learned or what my takeaway is when I finish a book and in this case, I told her:

"What I'm taking away from Sins of Our Mothers is that no matter what everyone else is doing around you, it's ok to be unique and fight for what you believe in - whether you have help or not!"

My favorite character was Lyratelle because she is a strong, independent woman, that fights for what she believes in. She's someone I could look up to and I felt kindred to her. The unpredictability and plot twists kept me enjoying page after page - Nicole Souza is a talented author and Sins of Our Mothers is a great adventure book!
