The story is centered on the life of Julia, all that she has lost, and all that she hopes to someday regain. She has spent her entire life trying to please everyone except for her, and in the process- trying to find some sort of perfected ideal. What appears on the surface as a simple tale of romance turns into a full on awakening for Julia, and everyone around her. All of these questions, and many more, are answered as each in the story finds their way as they walk unintended pathways towards what they hope will be contentment, and ultimately, what everyone tries to attain as the “perfect life”. In the end, Julia finally begins to live on her own terms- knowing that true happiness need not always be perfect… or even be fully understood. It is simply meant to be experienced for what it is– life.
A really wonderful book, that is fast paced. Even when sensitive topics come up, such as death , loss of loved ones and how to cope with it, the author does not focus on the darkness of it, but dares the reader to examine such issues. Beautifully written dialogue and well developed characters , Lisa Reece Lane is an author who is not afraid to approach difficult situations from a different point of view. Looking forward to her next work!!
