This was a really different book from those Meghan has written previously. We don’t see any of the fun, humour laced romance that we are used to, Dear Life was far more raw and emotional than any of her previous books
Dear Life is the journey of four people, strangers whose paths cross at a time in their lives where things seem beyond their control. All of them have suffered from some kind of emotional trauma – Hollyn, a newlywed, so in love when her husband is killed tragically at work 1 year into their marriage is struggling to cope with life without him. Jace, professional baseball player who’s career is on the up when an ex girlfriend drops a problem leaving him with a new born baby to care for. He makes the agonising decision to give her up for adoption knowing that he can’t give her what she needs. Daisy has lived a sheltered life. Raised by her grandmother she is suddenly faced with the real world when she dies leaving her feeling scared and lost. Life has dealt Carter a rough deal, a talented chef he has been left cooking in his uncles kitchen when his dreams of moving on left with his girlfriend when she ran off with his life savings.
They embark on the Dear Life programme, each wanting to move on but lacking the strength to do so alone. The aim to make the participants face their pasts and use this to forge their futures. The whole book was full of emotion but i personally felt more connected to Hollyn and Jace’s stories both which brought me to tears on more than one occasion. This book pulls at your heartstrings, shows you that life is not fair, it cuts you down when you think that things couldn’t be better making you face your own mortality and realising that life is for living and you can either give up or roll with the punches and use it to make you stronger.
This was a brilliant read from Meghan, a touching and truly inspirational story that proves you can overcome anything in life if you really want to.
