Confess: I am an emotional person and I don’t particularly like that about myself.
I just finished reading Confess by Colleen Hoover. I have read five pieces by Colleen and four out of the five have made me cry. With some it was a lot of tears and others it was an ugly cry.
Confess is about two people: Auburn and Owen.
Auburn makes a big move from Portland, Oregon to Dallas, Texas. She’s struggling. She hates her job as a hairdresser and doesn’t have much of a social life.
Owen is an artist who has his own studio and does well enough that he only has to open his studio once a month.
One day Auburn stumbles open a help wanted sign that just so happens to be posted outside of Owen’s studio. They may have only been together for less than a weekend, but that connection is enough to last a lifetime.
You find out real quick, that Owen has seen Auburn before. Throughout the story I was trying to figure out what their connection was. When I found out, is when I shed the tears.
This story follows two strong human beings. I don’t think I’d be able to make the kind of sacrifices that Owen does or be as strong as Auburn has to be with her decisions. I really liked what these characters stood for. It makes me really appreciate what I have.
I also really like how the confessions are tied into the paintings-you’ll see what I mean when you read the book. I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to slip a confession through Owen’s door.
What are you brave enough to confess? Are you able to leave a confession in the comments below?
