Carbon Under Pressure by Meg Heart is a book based on real events. This emotional and moving story begins with Rose being awoken by her sixteen-year-old daughter’s sobs and tears. Rose was taken by surprise at her daughter's emotional breakdown as she was always cheerful. Rose's surprise and sleepiness leave her immediately, however, after hearing her precious Sophie say, “Mum I'm so sorry, I can’t do this anymore. Please forgive me.” Rose realized that fateful night that her cherished daughter had the weight of the world on her shoulders and that she was being crushed by it. Those sorrowful words would reverberate and echo in her life for a long time and they would forever change Rose's life.
Carbon Under Pressure is a story worth telling, and it was told beautifully. Meg Heart did a brilliant job of conveying the horror, disbelief, sadness, and despair that Rose experienced. Rose's ordeal was both gripping and emotional, so much so that I couldn’t help but shed a tear or two. Apart from the well-written story, another thing I loved about this book was how the author could convey strong feelings and emotions that various characters had in a few words, as that helped ground the whole story for me. The constraint that the author employed when traumatic events were being discussed was greatly appreciated as I, for one, find it hard to read through such passages in a book based on actual events. This book was such a roller coaster of emotions for me and at the end of it all, I was glad to read it as this book is the best true story that I’ve read in a long time. I’d recommend this book to readers with an interest in emotional true stories.
