Unfortunately, I really didn’t like this book. I tried to, I was listening to it and got into the second CD before I had to stop. Part of the problem is that I had just finished listening to “Driftless” and I forced myself to finish that one because I wanted to see what that book was like. It was a fellow Wisconsin author, so I wanted to support the author by reading the book. So when I picked out Debbie Macomber’s book, not knowing anything about this author and I just couldn’t make myself care about what she was writing about I had to stop.
The story revolves around a young woman whose husband died, a husband she was actually separated from because she was wanting children and he wasn’t. He had been married before and he had kids. This was her first marriage and so he feelings about wanting children changed. They were on the verge of reconciling and he died in an accident.
The main character gets hooked up with a group of women who are all widows, of various ages. The book seemed like it was going to follow these various women’s lives, but I couldn’t make my self listen further to find out. It apparently is a series, but after listen to this book, I wouldn’t pick up another unless someone I know recommends one of her books to me.
