“Things We Do For Love” by Vered Neta is a superb family drama that highlights damage and redemption, hope and healing, and the power of family ties.

Mix together a derisive mother with a joie de vivre, a reclusive, highly intelligent father, and three sisters at loggerheads and you have the ‘Bach’ family.

In Things We Do For Love, the happy-family preconception is pulled apart string by string. In the agonizing sadness of watching their parents decline, the three sisters will individually understand something vitally important about themselves and finally allow acceptance in.

Vered Neta’s eloquent writing style draws the reader in and holds them fast. Her characters are heartfelt and real, and her portrayal of a not-so-normal family will tug on your heartstrings. Neta has given each of the characters in the story their own vulnerable and genuine role within the family. I really warmed to the fact that Neta divided the story into the five family viewpoints so that we could truly understand events from their unique perspectives. This is a fantastically raw story about love, grief, and family dynamics.

Things We Do For Love by Vered Neta is a wonderful unique, character-driven, moving tale that will sweep you away.

“Wow! What a story! Vered’s beautifully written story exploring family dynamics, complex emotions, fractured relationships, difficult choices, forgiveness, and making peace with yourself and others… It completely sucked me in, chewed me up, and spat me out the other end with a more positive, hopeful, and reflective mindset with regards to my own demon’s, trauma, and fractured relationships.

Vered does a brilliant job of teaching her readers that no one family is ever perfect. That there will always be a difference of opinion, conflicting personality traits, an action, or even words that will cause obstacles along this journey we call life. But what’s important is that we listen, ask questions, process, accept.

Vered’s characters are immensely realistic and even more relatable… Her portrayal of Alzheimer’s is raw, honest, heartbreaking, and heartwarming all at the same time, and she does it with a balance of reality, tact, sympathy, and empathy. Vered is an author who leaves a seamless imprint on your heart and mind.”
