How to Push Through is the fourth book in a series. In this book Anna Maria von Doderer has to tell a therapy patient news about a diagnosis she made many years ago.
The patient, Chrissie, is not looking forward to this visit either. She needs to tell her about Egon. Egon was abandoned during the second world war and grew as a wild child who brought many others together in different ways.
This story is told in the individual voices. I found the story to be written in a way that kept me interested, even though I had not read the previous books. The characters and the story line were woven together in a way that I felt I was living the lives of the characters I read about. I loved the descriptions that were in place as it allowed me to imagine scenes deeply.
I would recommend the reader try the other books in the series, but if they do not mind this, it is an excellent book by a talented writer.
I was given this book by the publisher, The Odyssey Press, in exchange for my honest review.
