Review: Finding Annie by Katherine Turner
There were so many sentences I underlined in this book because they resonated with my INFJ-ness. Annie’s story took me somewhere else at just the right time; it’s worth the read.
I normally don’t get into contemporary romance novels but Finding Annie gets right to the heart of an issue I feel people don’t want to talk about—sexual abuse and its many ugly, sometimes unrecognizable, heads. While reading, I found myself relating to Annie as she found comfort in imagining herself deep inside a painting, among the scenery—or feeling small enough to fold herself up inside her own body.
I felt closest to Annie as she tried to strike a balance between recognizing and accepting abuse that had happened and giving herself permission to enjoy a human experience once she was ‘older and wiser.’ It’s a tough spot and I thank my INFJ friend and author, Katherine Turner, for opening up and diving so deep into such a taboo topic, making it easier for me to understand my own experiences.
If you’d like to give this book a read, you can pick it up on Amazon.
