Letting Go written by Maria Thompson Corley is a story of self-discovery told through the eyes of the main character Cecile through diary entries, letter correspondence and dialogue. It is a unique love story. The story spans decades from teenage years through middle adulthood and as the reader, we are privy to Cecile's inside thoughts and experiences through detailed diary entries. I found this writing style intriguing as well as a fantastic way to continue to move the story along such a substantial time frame.
The story begins with Cecile falling in love with a young man, Teddy and continues through the evolution of their relationship. Through infidelity and other relationship issues, we bear witness to the internal struggled survived by Cecile. It is only with Langston, her true confidant and best friend, that she navigates her feelings and shares intimate details of her relationship struggles with Teddy.
