A Book In Review.


Brief Summary: 

Romance, humor, family drama, with a touch of Buddhism. Sound interesting? When approaching life’s problems, Sophie sees in black and white. That is, when they’re someone else’s problems. So when it comes to her sister, Sophie is sure she has all the answers, and offers them without hesitation. If only her sister would listen. Then, through a series of chance encounters, she meets Sam, who is witty, kind, and downright unflappable. Sophie has the overwhelming sense that she’s known him before, and as a relationship builds between them, odd visions invade her mind. Though she tries to dismiss them, their persistence will not allow it. As someone who is quick to judge others, she is intrigued by Sam’s ability to accept people as they are. She begins to see him as a role model, but try as she may, his accepting nature is difficult to emulate. Will Sophie ever be able to put her hasty judgments aside and realize not every problem has a simple solution?


I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book wasn’t what I expected it to be from the cover, but I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the differences in characters and how they each come to fit together somehow. There was a part that made me laugh out loud, and each time I told someone about that part of the book, they laughed hysterically too! I’d recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick read, but a solid story. The author does a great job of really painting a picture and helping you “see” the book. I’d give this book a good 3 stars, it’d be perfect to take to the lake or to read at the beach, xo!
