The Pages of her Life
By James L. Rubart
New from the award–winning author of The Five Times I Met Myself.
How Do You Stand Up for Yourself When It Means Losing Everything?
Allison Moore is making it. Barely. The Seattle architecture firm she started with her best friend is struggling, but at least they’re free from the games played by the corporate world. She’s gotten over her divorce. And while her dad’s recent passing is tough, their relationship had never been easy.
Then the bomb drops. Her dad was living a secret life and left her mom in massive debt.
As Allison scrambles to help her mom find a way out, she’s given a journal, anonymously, during a visit to her favorite coffee shop. The pressure to rescue her mom mounts, and Allison pours her fears and heartache into the journal.
But then the unexplainable happens. The words in the journal, her words, begin to disappear. And new ones fill the empty spaces—words that force her to look at everything she knows about herself in a new light.
Ignoring those words could cost her everything . . . but so could embracing them.
The Pages of Her Life is an engaging story with relatable, down-to-earth characters. The mysterious journal and Allison’s struggles really drew me in. I’m more of a fantasy kind of gal, but this one was book was good enough that I stuck with it till the end. Every character had a unique voice, which I enjoyed greatly, and spoke in ways that made them seem just as real as you or me. There were also many surprising twists and turns that gave the story life.
Every page held a question that could only be answered by ourselves. The message of this book is one well needed. That sometimes, we need to stand up for our beliefs, and ourselves no matter the cost.
I rate it: 4 1/2 stars
