Grace May is truly excited about turning 40 in a few months. And now that her boys are both in school and she has a stimulating new writing job, the next chapter in her life can finally begin. She can’t wait to rediscover the intelligent and interesting woman deeply buried under the layers of mother and wife. But when Grace loses her job and gets unexpected news from her husband and her best friend, life suddenly gets complicated. Grace stands to lose everything: her marriage, her best friend, and her sense of self. But by her 40th birthday party, Grace will realize who and what matter most. With laughter. With tears. With grace.
A purely honest story that many mothers, wives and women can relate to. I was instantly, I mean instantly drawn in. A crazy deja vu feeling and OMG do I feel your pain, happiness, frustration and so many more emotions because I felt like this story could be my own. The author bonds easily with the reader and just like that a literary friendship is made. A straight forward style of writing that is easy flowing and entertaining. My favorite chick lit book that I have read so far this year and I look forward to reading more from this author.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
