I have had multiple aborted attempts with books during this week( Since I now do not force myself to complete a book I am not enjoying). To remove the hangup of those books, I had to read one with good taste. I was lucky to have a book on my reading queue with just the right touch.
This story is of Rosie Carter who has just lost her husband of forty odd years. She has two daughters,a business and boatloads of memories. These memories are the wind in her sails and we are given insights into the working of her mind and she deals with her life. She runs into her past and is forced to weigh the good and the bad and realize she lead the best life she could.I am nowhere near the age Rosie is, but I was still able to relate to the variety of emotions she goes through. Her family is a group of very realistic people who together form a great life with the usual and the unusual ups and downs.The writing is good, and the rediscovery of herself before she settled into the roles she plays today in her world, is the highlight of the book.
I received this book via NetGalley as an advance reviewer’s copy.
