One red eye flight and ten years of marriage later, Carly Bishop had what she considered a practically perfect life. Her journalist husband and her two adorable children were everything to her. But soon she would find out that her dream life didn't fall in line with her husband's expectations. Left alone to sort out the pieces of her crumbling life, Carly finds strength in her children and her growing relationship with her in-laws. Most importantly, she finds her greatest strength as she builds a friendship with herself. This is a beautiful story of one woman's strength and determination as she finds the will to move forward and be happy while the life she had grown to love crumbles around her. It is a story of a man who has lost his way and may lose it all if he can't find his way back. The Girl in Seat 24B is a story of love and forgiveness.
In ” an Oyster Shell – Another heart captivating read with great characters and a story that will become a part of you. I am learning to expect nothing less from Jennifer Peel!
The Pearls – One of the many things that I like about Peel’s books is it really is about the romance! She has many interpretations of what romance looks like, but she hit’s the nail on the head every time. The truth be told, I passed this story up a few times because all I saw in the description was it’s about a marriage that is falling apart. I was like no thank you, I like to read uplifting things. Then I really read the book and it’s not about that. In the end it’s about finding yourself which is hard to do when you have married young. Even if that relationship wavers you can learn to come out ok in the end. That’s what this story is really about.
Carly is an amazing heroine in this story. Her world comes crashing around her along with some other unexpected things and she preserves. I like that Carly learns to stand up for herself but at some point learns to forgive as well. I thought Bishop was a strong character as well though a bit gruff at times. It all worked together. Of course, there were a myriad of supporting characters that weaved together a strong worth-while story.
I can’t say much about the ending…. but from beginning to end, it’s a beautiful love story and I will probably read it again,
The Sand – I feel like Bishop’s change of heart was a little sudden. It was like he was a complete jerk one minute and the next different. It was not super clear to me what changed.
I give this 4 pearls!
