KU Sunday Spotlight by KUBR + OCA

Welcome back to the KU Sunday Spotlight, brought to you by KU Book Reviews + the One-Click Addict Support Group. This week, a deeply emotional book that refuses to be categorized, written by one of my favorite authors. It’s a MUST READ, so make sure you add it to the very top of your TBR! Enjoy!


“It was all worth it. Even if I don’t get to keep him forever. Every tear was worth it.”

Now, that’s a true line if ever I saw one. Every tear in E.S. Carter’s latest release, The Definition of Fflur, was worth it. Because, ultimately, this is one incredibly touching reading experience.


It’s also as surprising as its sudden release. There’s no real way to characterize this book, except to say that it’s a little of everything—and a LOT of perfection. There’s such maturity in this book—and in Fflur, the titular character, whose story is one of pain and longing and laughter and love. But there’s also an innocence about it that called to me: a mother who wanted her to find her way; a daughter who’d experienced some {though, thankfully, not all} of her pain; a reader desperate for a happily ever after that felt both fated and elusive.

I wish I could tell you more about The Definition of Fflur—about Fflur and her flowers, about her love and her family, and about all the things that prove, once again, that Ms. Carter is exceptionally talented. But if I did that, I’d take something special—something that’s both heart-breaking and right, even when it feels wrong, wrong, wrong—and ruin it for you.

The Definition of Fflur is a book to be taken page by page, moment by moment, tear by tear. It’s an experience even more than it is a novel, and that’s a good thing. A great thing, even.

Because there truly is no way to classify this as a book, within a genre. It wouldn’t fit and I wouldn’t want it to. Just like I wouldn’t want to miss even the deepest, hardest tears that fell while I experienced this book.

Sometimes flowers grow in cracks. Some people call them weeds. I don’t. They’re the strong ones. The resilient ones. The ones who survive anything.

As of 04.01.2018, The Definition of FFlur is available with Kindle Unlimited.
