Enough Really is Enough by Vivien Heim is a brilliant fictional account that will reach your deepest emotional level.
Vivien Heim is a great writer and Enough Really is Enough is a mesmerizing read. The author managed to maintain a perfect balance. Vivien crafts characters with amazing precision, using just a couple of strokes to make them distinctive and very special.
Some scenes are heart-wrenching, and some will make you blush, but the book remains brutally honest. Lucie is a wonderful character who pours her heart out to the attentive and sympathetic reader. The story is about gaining self-confidence and achieving inner growth.
I recommend this book to fans of fiction and memoir genres. by Nino Lobiladze, Readers Favorite on January 7, 2023
