This is my first book by Wendy Hewlett so I did not know what to expect other than it was a self-discovery story with a possible love story. Little did I know that 2 chapters in and I would be “a blubbering fool” as well! Parent child relationships are so personal to me because I am both a parent and a child. My relationships with my parents/stepparents is rocky at best; however my relationship with my children is so much better. Whenever I read a story involving parents and their children I always get a little misty eyed. The way Hewlett has written the relationships with Ailey and her family had me sobbing. Then laughing, then angry, then smiling! You know: all the feels!
This story was filled with so many twists and surprises all because one man was a selfish liar. I loved watching Ailey discover herself, her family’s secrets and her new found friends. Everyone needs true friends, ones you can trust, ones you can laugh and cry with, ones that just get you. Friends that are really your tribe!
I don’t want to give away any more of this story but I highly recommend it. I can’t wait to see what else Hewlett has up her sleeve!
