Weekend Read


This week was spent enjoying lots of tasty birthday cake! Another tasty treat, this time for my eyes, awaits me this weekend. I'm diving into a book by the awesome Julie Wright. If you haven't met or read her, do! She has to be one of the must fun and energetic people I've ever met. Her books definitely reflect the awesomeness that is her.

Without future ado...

Olivia (The Newport Ladies Book Club)The Robbins household looks perfect from the outside: no dust, no stains, no wrinkles. Yet a glimpse into its heart reveals no laughter, no closeness, no joy. Olivia thinks that if she keeps everything tidy and serves delicious meals on time, family life is bound to get better. But when her husband, Nick, misses their anniversary, she realizes no amount of domestic success will compensate for failure in their marriage, or for her own failure to develop her identity, always busy as a mother, wife, and neighbor, she has forgotten how to be a unique and vibrant individual. Determined to make a change, Olivia joins a local book club, where she nurtures new friendships and explores new ideas. But her growing confidence falters when Nick declares his independence, and while her new friends lovingly encircle her with support, only Olivia can reach into the depths of her fledgling self to find the faith, hope, and love her troubled family needs.
