Review:

This book had several stories- I believe 4 – and it jumped back and forth between them. This is ok in theory except the reader had no idea how these stories connected until at least half-way to two-thirds through the book (unless I missed it earlier). Because of this the book seemed very fragmented and choppy. Once the stories all came together and everything made sense then it was a really good book but it took a long time to get there.

There were a few of the story lines that I really did enjoy. Where Will stayed with Burkhard’s family was beautifully written. That part alone could’ve been a short story.

I gave In the Midst ⭐⭐⭐/5 because of the hard to follow storylines. There were several times I was going to give up on the book but I pushed through and in the end I’m glad I did.

A special thank you to JP Robinson for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review..
