Jessica is a very likable character. What I think I enjoyed most about this story is when I thought the story was over it was really beginning! I would recommend this book highly, it was very enjoyable. Everyone enjoys a good story and this was a great story.
Now, on with what it's about.. Jessica is a woman who has had hiccups in her life and is working thru them. Ups, downs, outright disasters, lovely high points. We get to experience it all. We also get into her head a bit more than the normal book, but it works. You also have to realize this book is set mostly in the 50's and 60's, so technology and things aren't up to date. This is in case you question some of the settings or happenings.
I thought the book plodded along nicely, giving a life story of this woman and her reflections of her past and moving forward. By the end, the author tied things up in a pretty bow for a "Happily Ever After". Then the epilogue... Well, that certainly was wonderful reading!!
Like I said early on, just get the book, and then settle in for a quieter time on the island.
This story takes place in the 50s and 60s. There are cars, buses, and airplanes, but cell phones and the internet haven’t arrived yet.
Jessica is trying to escape her past and the tragedies she has lived through. Stressful things happen to everyone, but her failed marriage, the death of her son, and not having a good relationship with her daughter have all added up to being too much to handle. She must escape them, escape everything that reminds her of them. No one would miss her, and she really must get away.
She moves from New York to a small island community. The majority of its inhabitants are in their fifties and sixties.
I thought the book was very well-written, but it didn’t hold my attention that well until Amy enters the story and makes friends with Jessica. The book then became hard to put down. Amy is much younger, and Jessica’s friendship with Amy makes her take an even harder look at herself and her relationship with her own daughter.
Once Jessica is living on the island, she and her daughter do reconcile. Her daughter buys her a journal, and she decides to write about her life. Romance, memories, and hope for the future fill her life and her journal. Maybe writing about her life will help her to realize who she is.
Jessica Lost Her Wobble does a great job of keeping the twist a secret until the very end. At first, I was mad and tempted to throw my Kindle, but I really didn’t want to risk breaking it. This book turned out to be more of a great psychological story. I didn’t think the twisty ending made any sense when I first read it, but I had forgotten something. “The Prologue” had completely slipped my mind because I had become so involved with what was going on with Jessica and the other characters. That alone should give you a hint as to how well the author developed these characters.
I bought my copy of Jessica Lost Her Wobble from Amazon. If you are a fan of literary fiction, women’s fiction, or stories with a psychological twist, you will love this book. Even if you aren’t fans of those genres, this book should appeal to you. My favorite genres are horror and mystery; a psychological twist is a bonus.
This book about how Jessica lost her wobble is captivating.
As well done as her first book, "Vanishing Barns on the Backroads" or, I think, even better. Buy both and share the memories of how you grew up with your grandchildren! Before those memories disappear, too. Thanks, Julie!!
Read it. Perhaps you'll find some answers of your own.
