I remember when I saw the cover of Second Honeymoon it made me want to pick it up. It’s amazing how powerful a cover can be. I finished this book awhile ago, but I’m just writing my review. A short premise for the book is what happens when all the children leave their mother’s house and the mother is left to feel as though her life no longer exists. It’s evident that the husband, Russell is eager to have his wife Edie back after years of raising children, but Edie does not have those feelings. She wants the house to be full again with her kids. I don’t have kids, but I do believe that this happens to most parents. As with all great plans, once Edie is given a full house she realizes that having a full house is not exactly how she envisioned it would be. Joanne Trollope does a wonderful job of giving all the characters a unique and interesting voice and maintaining a cohesive story line. In the end, Edie realized that letting go does not take away her ability to mother, it enriches her ability to love. Thank you all for reading with me.
The next selection is No Woman No Cry: My Life with Bob Marley by Rita Marley. It will be interesting to hear Rita’s account of life with the famous musician.
