Vicki Alexander is a mother, wife, and writer. She is probably a lot like you. For as long as she can remember, she has written. It is a place she goes to find answers to questions she didn’t even know I had.
“After all, you are a Brennan, and Brennan’s are tough as nails.”
Sarah has not lived a stable life. Her parents divorced when she was young, and her mother taught her to be desirable but never to fall in love. As Sarah stumbles through her life, she takes many lovers. She makes so many mistakes. But when she looks back, two people come to mind: her sister, Julie, and her true love, Maggie.
This was a profound book with serious undertones surrounding addiction, abuse, and loss. I found the characters to be well-written and fully defined.
I wanted Sarah to find happiness healthily from the beginning. She spent much of her youth lost in the quagmire her mother taught her was life. She was partying and having meaningless relationships, and struggling to survive.
It was a moving book filled with love, loss, and reinvention. I enjoyed watching Sarah take control of her life and decide to thrive. Happiness was her choice to make, and she chose it unapologetically.
