Review: The One That I Want
I got this book from the Read it Forward program…what a great way to find new authors.
The story is about a woman, Tilly, who lives in the small town she grew up in and loves holding on to the memories of high school. She finds this as happiness, at least she thinks so. She is the person in the family who takes care of it all and shoulders most of the burden of family issues. There is at least a couple facets of the main character that any mother/wife/sister could relate too.
Tilly then receives the gift of clarity that allows her to see the future unfold itself to her. While that part is a little far fetched the point that she can now see things for what they are is common. She starts to realize that while she wants everything to be happy and perfect when she really pays attention she realizes that it wasn’t just so, including her own happiness.
There is alot of destruction that comes into her life and she hits some lows..but at the end she rebounds and regains a new clearer perspective on life.
It is a perfect end of summer read or one that you can read a little bit at the end of our crazy days.
