'Becoming' by Laura Jane Williams was a raw read about heartbreak at a raw time for me. This book resonated especially, due to my own familial ties in Derby and my mutual ambitions to write. I found solace in her celebratory and unapologetic manner of wearing her heart on her sleeve to those around her. 'You feel things deeply, you couldn't write if you did otherwise.' Expect a few self-help cliches and epiphanies but there is an over arching message that is both feminist and uplifting. An important and encouraging portrait.
