In truth, how many of us feel like we are in a rut or can't figure out why we are not happy more often? I am certainly guilty of this. It can be hard to see past the negative and appreciate what we do have in our lives. However, this book, though fiction, tackles these very real emotions. As I was brought into Camille's life, I immediately identified with her. The sincere portrayal of this woman resonated with me more than I even thought possible.
I will not sit here and rehash the story because I truly believe everyone should read it for themselves and allow it to affect them in their own way. What I will say is this. The writing is eloquent, the characters are completely relatable, and the way the author enlightens the reader is not done in a preachy way. From beginning to end, I loved this book. In our current world where so much is negative, I cannot recommend it more.
Added bonus...there is a list of tools you can use in your real life to embrace the credos of routine-ology.
