Jen is a bit of an everywoman. She's not entirely down on her luck, but she's not having a lot of career success or doing what she wants with her life. She has friends and family, but she also has an ex who likes to take advantage of her kindness. All of this is a great set-up for the series of random---and funny, poignant, and triumphant---events that happen over the rest of the story.
Like all my favorite stories, this is much more focused on character development than on the individual plot points. Jen goes from being somewhat meek to brave and confident, and we get to cheer for her along the way.
I loved the way Jen's relationship with Eleanor unfolds. It should be noted that this is not exclusively, or primarily, a romance. While there is a love story, it's far more about who Jen is as a person. When she meets Eleanor, her reaction is much like how most of us would behave in her shoes: she's a bit star-struck. But she's forced to get over it quickly in order to fulfill her work duties.
Although this is about Jen coming into her own and about two women slowly finding their way into each other's hearts, it's the kind of story anyone can enjoy and relate to. It's definitely a bit of wish fulfillment, too. After all, who of us hasn't at some point wished our jobs or our relationships were more satisfying? But it's the story's optimism that makes it such a joy to read and leaves one feeling there must be hope after all.
For delightful characters, beautiful writing, and a lot of warmth and humor, this gets 5 stars.
