Laura Dave hit a home run with this one. I can honestly say this has been my favorite book that I have reviewed for BlogHer. This is the story about Annie Adams. She has an exciting career and a comfortable long-term relationship. When she was expecting a marriage proposal she got a "we need some space" instead. When the future she had planned on is pulled from her things get a little spontaneous. And by spontaneous I mean she meets a chief, falls in love, gets married and moves from LA to the middle of nowhere.
As Annie struggles with the decisions she had made her ex comes back and gives her even more to think about. Now Annie has to decide which man is her soul mate. The man she had spent years with and who left her or the man she barely knows.
I loved this book for a few reasons. The first is that I know that feeling. That feeling when you had your whole life laid out in front of you and then the one person who you thought would always be there leaves and suddenly your future is uncertain. It was such a scary and exciting time. You don't know what your future now holds and you are very likely going to make some bad decisions at this time. I eventually got excited for the future without this person. I realized I was better off and my future was bright. Then he came back. Did everything he could to right the wrong he did. Just like Annie I had to decide which road to take.
This book is a great read and I recommend it for a good vacation read. We are discussing this book over at the BlogHer Book Club. Come over and join us!
