I am not an avid reader, but this book was worth my time. I felt connected to the characters, as if they could be a neighbor or co-worker. I have bought two more copies of this book to give as gifts. I hope my friends enjoy it as much as I did.

This is a very well written, insightful novel about a young woman coming to terms with who she is, and should become, and her struggle to overcome outside dictates as to what others think she 'should be'. I would especially recommend this book to any young woman about to embark on this same journey of self-discovery.

Jenna was only 24 when cancer took her husband. He was a very successful young artist.She was content to just be his wife and put her talents and desires on hold so she could totally support him.Her parents ad best friend were against her marriage but she was happy anyway.Years ago I had a Creative Writing teacher who tried to teach us to write according tothought pattern. I never successfully accomplished it - LK did.This was a little difficult at first to follow as the author fluctuated between past and present.She, however, was able to do so remarkably well. I would have preferred a slightly different ending but it wasn't my story. It reflected feelings and grieving of many spouses left behindby the death of the other.I gave a weak four star rating because at first it was difficult to follow along then in the middleit, somewhat, dragged. It was quite "cleanly" well-written and once the reader began to discoverthe past/present pattern, it was a good story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
