That is exactly what our heroine is going through in Amalie Coles’ – My Journey.
Rebecca O’Connor Smith has a loving family, a loving husband and job that pays the bills but is it enough?
After a tragedy hits her family, they are forced to move to Toronto to start over and pick up the pieces. Where her sister, Erin, fits in perfectly with the “in” crowd becoming a cheerleader, Becky is sort of an outcast. She didn’t feel as though she was a “typical Canadian” where most people cared about the Maple Leafs, she preferred Biblical archeology and ethnic music.
During her third year of college, she met Jason Smith who would come to be her husband. He made no qualms at the fact he loved her and her interests, he respected the fact that she was studying what she loved; anthropology. After dating, he proposed and they were married shortly after against everyone’s advice that maybe she is too young, but when you meet your soulmate, that doesn’t matter, does it?
After four years in a marriage that she is content with, she decides to apply for a scholarship where she will be doing an archeological dig in Israel for three weeks and thus begins the start of her journey in finding herself.
This story is filled with ups and downs that will you have you biting your nails.
Can her marriage survive through the trials of being apart, her chasing her dreams, and meeting a new guy who shares her interests? Can she choose between doing what she loves and what is expected of her? Does she have to?
One thing you will absolutely take away with this book is a new respect for anthropology. Let’s face it, most of what we know about anthropology and archeology is from Dr. Brennan on Bones or Indiana Jones. I got completely tangled up in the historical facts as well as the love story of Becky. I couldn’t help but google some of the cities and sites that were mentioned throughout and felt just a little bit smarter after reading it.
Don’t worry, no spoilers, but Becky does find her happy ending.
The only drawback was the phrasing in some areas of the book which makes me think English isn't the author's main language. Even with that, I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
