The Idea of You, A Beautiful Story, Well Told!
The Idea of You is a powerful and moving story.
Anyone who has lost a child, battled with a teen, or struggled with a blended family, will be wholly immersed in, and captivated with this novel.
Lucy and Jonah Carpenter were heart-broken; the pain of three miscarriages had taken its toll. The overwhelming sadness in their home was straining their marriage. Lucy was also agonizing over a tense relationship with Jonah’s teenage daughter as well as with her own mother. But, what was really wearing Lucy down was the dark secret she had unsuccessfully tried to bury.
Lucy’s sister, Fay, envied Lucy because of her prestigious job, and the free time that came along with having no children. But, what Fay didn’t realize was that Lucy was aching to have a child of her own, to cuddle with, cook for, and fuss over.
This is a beautifully written book about parenthood, relationships, and families. Life can be cruel, and unfair, but it can also be exhilarating, blissful and full of love. This story flows effortlessly, allowing the reader to feel, ponder, and like a soothing balm, even heal. Amanda Prowse is an amazing writer, and an author I’m glad I found.
