For Margaret Jacobsen, the future looks very bright. She’s just about to start her dream job, she’s very much in love with Chip, and it looks like planning a wedding is in her near future. And then, in one terrifying moment, everything is changed forever. Now, in the hospital, Margaret has to confront the her new reality. But, she also has to deal with Chip, who’s looking for forgiveness and feeling very sorry – for himself. Kit, Margaret’s estranged sister shows up after a long absence, and throws the family dynamic into a loop – again. And then there’s Ian, Margaret’s physical therapist, whose gruffness and refusal to take things easy on Margaret make things even more difficult.
If you liked Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, you’ll love this one! Heartbreaking at times, but with a bit of humor, and a whole lot of heart. If you’re looking for a book club title that’s not too heavy, and will leave you with a smile on your face, this one would be a good choice.
