What a great novel! This is one of those books that when you finally close it after that last page, that last sentence; you are truly sad to see it end.
The main character, Tessa, is very likeable as are her friends. This story encompasses all emotions-happy, sad, angry and tearful. It really is a book that seems to follow real life people with real life things happening to them.
Tessa is a thirty-something woman who goes on the emotional journey of her life and in the end comes to realize many things about herself and what she needs to do to take care of herself.
It shows us the importance of true and close friendships and what we need or should do to hold those relationships together. It shows us the benefits to being single or married and how both have good points. It shows us the longing of some people to have what all their friends seem to have but that they can never seem to attain.
They describe this book as a notch-up on the usual chick-lit and I have to agree. It delves deeper into the emotions of the individuals than you usually find in those type of books or at least I think so and I enjoy chick-lit. It’s not just a light read, it’s more of a drama with the funny chick-lit stuff thrown in.
I already miss Tessa and all her friends. I’m hoping that there may be a sequel and we’ll be able to find out where Tessa eventually lands in this journey we call life. I would absolutely recommend this book to other readers.
