I stayed up till almost one in the morning finishing this book. I truly enjoyed every moment. Her relationships with her sister’s family, her relationships with her patients (she is a caregiver), her sympathy and empathy towards a homeless man she falls for and her relationship with her online buddy. I cared for and worried with her over the numerous situations that arose, and I laughed with her. The book is full of humor and good spirit. She tries over and over to understand,help, and be the best person she can be and also try to find out what will make her life complete. Although I felt almost starved for the human contact that I hoped for between some of the characters, in the end, you realized that you just cannot judge a book by its cover. Reminded me a little like the lessons “The Fisher King” and “To Kill a Mockingbird” taught me. I will recommend this book. The wording flowed effortlessly, and the story draws you in. I would buy this one.
- I was given this book for an honest review.
At thirty-nine, Leona Accorsi is broke, single, back in school, and living in her sister Carly’s basement. She’s perfectly content being quirky Auntie Lee to Carly’s four children. That is, until Leona’s doctor tells her that if she wants to have a child, she’d better do it now.
Leona does want a baby. She always has, but the circumstances have never been right. Now she has a huge decision to make: face motherhood on her own or risk missing out on its rewards.
Unfortunately, she’s let her romantic life go stagnant. She barely even knows any single men. She has just a few prospects: a Vietnam vet and partial amputee, his intimidating son, the sweet but troubled man who tutors her niece, and a fellow nursing student she’s never actually met.
As Leona discovers more about each one, she realizes any of them could be the right man for the job. The more important question is, has she become the right woman?
