Willow Hill, North Carolina, Susan Schild’s moving and witty novel tells of one
woman who loses everything—and finds more than she ever expected.
thirty-eight, Linny Taylor is suddenly living a life she thought only happened
to other, more careless people. Widowed for the second time, and broke, thanks
to her cheating late husband, Linny has no house, no job, and no options except
to go back home. There, in a trailer as run down as her self-esteem, Linny
makes a list of things that might bring happiness. A porch swing. A job that
nourishes her heart as well as her bank balance. Maybe even a date or two.
first, every goal seems beyond reach. But it’s hard for Linny to stay in the
doldrums when a stray puppy is coercing her out of her shell—right into the
path of a kind, compassionate vet. The quirky town is filled with friends and
family, including Linny’s mother, Dottie, who knows more about heartache than
her daughters ever guessed. And as Linny contemplates each item on her list,
she begins to realize that the dreams most worth holding on to are measured not
in worldly success, but in the sweetness of a life lived to the fullest.
It is really nice to read a wholesome story. I mean the character Linny Taylor has lost it all, including two husbands and a place to live, widowed twice and left with nothing, she has to start all over again. I think that it would be easy to give up but not Linny and her friend Mary Catherine, her sister Kate or her mother would give up on her.
I totally loved this sweet story. I believe this could happen to anyone. I thought the author Susan Schild did a great job in writing this novel. I enjoyed reading the story and about the Linny’s Sweet Dream List, what a great idea. I also loved the affirmations that the author put in, not sure where she got them from but I really enjoyed them as well.
If your looking for a wholesome clean romance this is a really great book to read.
