Nicole Baxter thinks she has the perfect life all mapped out. She is steadily climbing the corporate ladder as an intrepid journalist and she’s about to marry the love of her life, Dr. Paul Schofield.
Everything is working out exactly as she planned. Life can’t get any better.
Nicole’s carefully planned life is unceremoniously turned upside down when she gets jilted at the altar by the so-called love of her life.
She must learn to live and love all over again and decides to open her heart and mind to new people and possibilities.
She begins to realise that life is about finding her passion and with the help of her sister and some new friends she sees that getting lost was the best way to find herself.
This is a magical book, compressed into a magical area of Ireland, and set in one of my favourite cities, Cork in the deep south west of that magical country.
It spans the emotional lives of two people and their families and friends, and starts with an emotional disaster and ends with reconciliation and love. Using a deliberately small palette, Joanne Clancy has delineated a story which can go round the world, with implications and connections to anywhere in the world.
So if you are fascinated by the myriad strands of human emotion, love and despair, hatred and disappointment, turning back to human warmth, buy this book. ~ John Walker, Amazon
I hope there are sequels to this book. I want to know if Amanda and Kian ended up getting married and if Sarah finds someone who makes her want to get married. And Ben! I hope he finds someone to love.
Overall, this is a story of learning to forgive and how to handle all of life’s curveballs even when you just want to bury your head under the blankets and sleep the rest of your life away. I can’t wait to read more by this talented author. ~ Angieleigh, Amazon
