When secrets, tragedy, and poor decisions cause rifts in Amy’s relationships, she must come to terms with who she’s become, her unrealized aspirations for her life, and the state of her faith. Can she dare to hope that she will find love and fulfillment despite it all?
I loved this author’s witty voice! I kept laughing throughout the novel. To be honest, it took me a while to get through this novel, but I have to say that I loved it. I totally connected to the main character, Amy. For aspiring female novelists, this is a must-read. The main character is plagued with editorial rejections and stuck in this place where her heart’s desires are just not being filled liked she’d hoped. How many of us have been there? Yeah, me too. I thought the author did a fantastic job of really capturing the voice and feel of so many twenty-something/thirty-something women. Amy’s inner monologue is hilarious! The real heart of this novel is just that it’s a real-life kind of story that you can relate to. I was rooting for Amy, not necessarily that all her wishes would come true, but that she’d find that sort of happiness that really matters. Her faith is not heavy-handed in the book, but I love that the author explores Amy’s struggles with faith. Overall, I highly recommend this book. It wasn’t a quick read for me, but in the long run, I truly felt like it was an excellent story worth reading.
