Summary of the Book:
When you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, you’re bound to fall apart. Who will be there to help pick up the pieces?
Nellie Campbell is a fixer. She’s selfless in her need to solve the problems of the people she loves. When her mom is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, she puts her own life on hold and dives head first into caretaker mode. Her days are spent consumed with the troubles of others—her mom, her wayward sister, the neighborhood stray cat, the single mom next door. She tackles every issue as though it were her own, ignoring herself in the process.
Until she meets Jude Hargrove. After one brief encounter, he manages to awaken something inside of her that she had long left for dead. Herself.
But is it too late for Nellie? Can Jude help her see her own worth or will she be destined to see herself as a problem that just isn’t meant to be solved?
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I wanted to read this book for I new the story was going to be a little heavy. Nellie has taken the weight of the world off the shoulders of others for she believes she should do this. It has taken its toll on her and she becomes lost in the world do for others what she will not do for herself. That she has a brief encounter with Jude. Sweet and lovely Jude who has issues and problems of his own, but is will to help Nellie see the light. The book is beautiful and it touches me on many loves. Layne Deemer has woven a tale of pain, anguish, love, caring and sharing the emotions we as people must carry with us each and everyday.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
