I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.
Jen Craven is the author of upmarket women’s fiction, where one decision changes everything. The author of two historical fiction novels, “Best Years of your Life” is her debut contemporary work. She writes from northwestern Pennsylvania, where she lives with her family.
“The thing about crystal, thoughn, is that it’s easy to break.”
This was a heavy one. The storyline is told in parts, which I enjoyed. I liked the characters and how things moved along.
I liked Cate. She felt like an authentic woman who was struggling with infertility. She had done everything “right” and yet something she wanted so badly, a child, couldn’t happen.
I liked Jada as well. She has been through it, but she was trying and I appreciate that. There were some issues I had with her character, like not knowing about the safe haven laws while working at a medical office.
Overall this was a great read. The pacing was well done and the plot moved along smoothly. And things worked out in a way that was unexpected, but not the worst. The element of hope is strong within this story, and I loved that.
