Overview

The national bestselling author of Veil of Roses makes her NAL debut with a stand-out commercial women's novel that's smart, funny, sad, and uplifting.

Since the love of her life betrayed her, Meg has had a hard time putting into practice her Hokey-Pokey Theory of Life, which demands that you put your whole self in. What's the point of opening yourself up if your heart comes back a little more broken each time? These days, Meg and her nine-year-old son Henry are taking on the world in their own lively way, and it's enough.

Then Meg unexpectedly finds love in the form of an exotically handsome Iranian-American who befriends her and Henry over a game of chess in a coffee shop. When Meg takes another leap of faith, she begins to discover that in order to heal you have to hurt, but most of all you have to live your life and put your whole self in.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Meg Clark is content with her life as a kindergarten teacher and single mom to nine-year-old Henry. She isn't looking for love, but when she meets Ahmed at the local coffee shop, she thinks love may have just found her. Set in Tucson, AZ, and ably performed by YA actress/narrator Julia Whelen, this simple romantic story by Fitzgerald (www.laurafitzgerald.com), whose first novel, Veil of Roses (2006), was an international best seller, features relatable characters and a realistic plot line different from the lavish lifestyles and extreme characters of many of today's popular romances. Though a bit slow at times, this down-to-earth tale is a pleasurable listen overall. [The audio edition of Fitzgerald's sequel to this title, Dreaming in English, will also be available from Brilliance Audio, in January 2011.—Theresa Horn, St. Joseph Cty. P.L., South Bend, IN
