If you relate to real people caught up in today's lifestyle, you'll love Ms. Rushin's new mover. Although it is basically a tale of tried love, there is still an element of mystery that crops up to complicate the lives of Ret. Adm. Tom Cagney and widow Ellen Powell. This romantic novel of people you might know, their families and friends captures your interest and keeps you turning the pages. Bravo, Ms. Rushin! Keep them coming.

Since I am a widow myself, I could certainly associate with Ellen's trials and tribulations throughout the book. However, not just Ellen, but every character was well-defined and important as supporting members. Everyone seemed so real.

Broadsided by Love, is a story about a widow who decides to visit her daughter in Seattle, only to find much more than anticipated. Finding love isn't always easy, but with her everyday struggles, some good, some not so good, everything has its own way of coming together. I strongly recommend this easy to read novel by Beverly A. Rushin.

This is a story combined with love and family bonding. It provides you with patience, honesty and compassion that this woman expresses for all those close to her. And, what little she expects for all that she gives of herself.

Everyone should have a family like this. From Syracuse to Canada to Seattle, the loves and losses are similar to some we have all encountered. The practical nature of the daily lives as narrated bring the moments close. These are not prissy, self-righteous characters, but people whose wholesomeness shines through their coping with life's unexpected offerings. Even the less likable are at times given redeeming qualities. Delightful reading.
