    Learning to live again

    I have sat with a few friends as they have gone through a divorce. No matter how one decides to deal with it, there is always pain and suffering and in our "quick fix" world, no one actually wants to know about the long haul that a person has to go through in dismantling their lives and starting over. I am grateful for my marriage of 46 years, but when my son died I experienced the glazed eyes and people turning away from me, when all I wanted was someone to allow me to talk about him and to give me a hug. They didn't even have to understand. I could therefore identify with Rosie as she was left holding the baby, both literally and figuratively. Being of a different temperament to the rest of her family members didn't help her either as it would seem she had been protected and provided for all her life. Suddenly finding herself out in the world again, was a jolt to her emotionally and physically. Ending up in the small abandoned mining town of Lucknow brings its own set of complications and Rosie has to learn to wade through her feelings and come to a place where she makes choices based on her own needs rather than what everyone else decides would be best for her. This book is sad but one applauds Rosie as she finally makes her choice, even though she knew she was going to disappoint people. I got the feeling that this story isn't over but this book is nevertheless a stand alone. It is clean and fully exhibits the trauma many woman go through when dealing with the end of a marriage. I received a copy of this book from Book Brag and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Contemporary Romance

    Nick, Rosie’s husband, was a selfish good-for-nothing waste of a man. He came home one night, told Rosie he was moving on, packed his bags and walked out leaving her with their son and no anchor to keep her grounded. What did she do? She went to live in Lucknow at the suggestion of her sister and then…once again she let others take over her life…until she wised up and decided to do what was best for her. Rosie was pursued by two men that were complete opposites. One was much like her ex-husband – a good earner, down-to-earth, sure of what he wanted for himself and his life…even if it wasn’t exactly what Rosie envisioned. The other man was a transplant to Australia from Ireland, enjoyed his drink, had an artist’s soul, was passionate and able to feel…his vision for them couldn’t have been more different than her other admirer. Which man will she choose? Will she follow her heart? Will she opt for love or stability or can she have both? Reading this made me think about what it would be like to live in a small town. It made me think about how family may want what is best for you but what they want may not really be in your best interest. It made me feel and care and wonder…and I enjoyed the story. It was a book of choices and change and finding love in unexpected places. Did I like this book? Yes Would I read other books by this author? Yes Do I recommend this book? Definitely I do wonder about Rosie’s friend, Eloise, and wonder if she will star in a future book and I also wonder if this is a one-off story or if Lucknow might star in future books. Thank you to NetGalley and Three Kookaburras for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4.5 Stars
