Now 17 years later her son is asking to see his father. All these crushing blows have made her one angry witch. She is mad at his father, she is anger at her parents, she is mad at the world. Justifiably so, but all this anger has made her caustic and hard. She loves her son there is no doubt there. She has made a good life for the two of them. She was smart to begin with and she made school happen. it wasn't the big university she had planned on but the community college served her purpose. She is independent and has a good career.
On the down side, she has been like many parents today. She has planned out her son's life with no regard to what he wants. Of course, she does it all in the guise of "what's best for him". Big mistake. It seems most parents think the most important thing in the world is to have a career that pays a lot. Happiness will come later after all, they know what is best. She also made one big mistake. She kept his father from him so that when he finds out, the explodes all over her and blames her for everything. It always happens that way, Dr. Phil will tell you it serves no purpose and you will pay in the long run because they will resent you for it. But after all, she was doing what was best for him. Or so she told herself.
Dad and the hero is a surgeon serving with an organization like Dr.'s without Borders But his son has asked to see him so he leaves and returns to their hometown to meet his son for the first time. Needless to say there is a LOT of drama as the three of them come to grips with the past, the present and the future. Make no mistake, he did a lot of things wrong but he has paid a price as well.
I didn't really care for this heroine. She was a bitter, angry woman and she made everyone in her path pay for it. I could understand her heartache, she was betrayed by the "boy" that she thought loved her. She was betrayed and abandoned by her own parents, she became a mother when she was just a child herself. She had a lot to be angry for but she allowed it to control her own life and she became as controlling and uncompromising as the hero's parents and her own parents. I don't think she ever saw that. It is like I can do what is best for you but her parents couldn't do what was best for their daughter. A pattern that is all too common. We give a child life and that is exactly what we should do, give them life and then allow them to live it.
There are lot of members in this family dynamic even the cat plays a bit part!! It is a very good story. One that will hold your attention from beginning to end. I will say that he found her smart mouth cute, I found it annoying! But, it was all part of her personality and obviously he liked it. I definitely recommend the book. On the sex scale I would give it a 4. Probably not appropriate for all ages but then with kids today, most know more than their parents! Their parents just don't know that they know!!! So, you decide what is best for your kid! :-). It is a very good read and very interesting to see inside the mind of a parent and what makes them tick.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 8/25/17
I usually like to think about the book after I've read it, not this time.
