Friendships and starting over
What a wonderful story of self discovery, friendship and letting go of the past. Jade’s life is turned upside down when she returns home from a trip to an unexpected surprise. As she works through the pain, she meets some friends along the way that become her allies and sounding board. As she begins her new life there is a lot of soul searching, reflection and forgiveness that helps her cope with the future. The new friends all have a little baggage of their own, yet as they lean into each other and support one another they find out what the true meaning of friendship is. A really beautiful story. I requested an arc and I am proving my honest review.
