She's Got Books on Her Mind

Thirteen years ago Kate Vaughan lost the love of her life, the only life she wanted, and her newborn daughter. She actually gave that daughter away after her and Jack couldn't provide her with a united family. See everything was going well for Kate. She was with Jack Adams, who she's known for as long as she can remember and she was helping young girls feel better about themselves. Jack didn’t like all the time they were spending apart and he warned Kate but Kate didn’t listen. She lost him and all she wants for the longest time is for him to come back to her.

Jack was her first kiss on the first day of spring which becomes pretty important to her. Every day on the first day of spring she has to do something unexpected. Something she wouldn’t regularly do. The present spring she’s decided to make a clean break. She needs to talk to Jack and get closure. She decides this when she saw a wedding ring that her current boyfriend hid away. She didn’t tell Rowan that she was going. She just did it. There are a lot of things that Rowan doesn’t know about her but it’s all about to be revealed when she sees a friend request on Facebook. That friend request is from none other than the daughter she gave up all those years ago.

What I really liked that the author did with this book was give us a background of her own personal story. One of her family members gave away their child and 21 years later her child found her on Facebook. This personal story made me instantly like this story and the possibilities of where it can go. I loved that it was the daughter that found the mother especially since I’m sure it would be even more complicated if the mother or father found the daughter. Simply because maybe she would not be ready to meet the parents that she felt didn’t want her.

This seriously was an emotional book for me. Parents and children being lost and found, it all gets to me. It’s such a sweet story that feels lighthearted and happy but also is just very sad. I mean Kate gave away her child which I still don’t understand. So what if her and Jack weren’t together? Have you never met a single parent? I also thought Jack’s excuse for leaving her was just plain dumb. He could not convince me that he would let the love of his life get away from him just because they hadn’t been spending time together for a long time. If you love her, wait for her. You apparently don’t love her enough because she’s clearly happy helping children deal with their problems. Ugh. Annoying…

The style of writing is hard to explain. It just had this way about it that kind of felt… wise maybe? It kind of felt sometimes that Jack wasn’t really someone I could know though. He was distant for me but he wasn’t. I think I know who Jack was but really I think I would have liked his POV in the book so I would have gotten to really know him. His daughter was such a nice girl. She's like her mother in that she likes the "cool" guy who is also the good guy. I feel like she's humble too which I can't really explain. It's just a feeling I get off of her. I really did like this book. It was such a joy to read. I have been in a kind of reading slump where I felt the books I was reading were good but not great. This book is great. It’s an emotional, heartwarming story that I really needed. I am so happy I was able to read this book and can’t wait to read more about this author. This really was a treat for me. ( )

I don't normally read library books with a pencil in my hand, but I made an exception for this horribly written/edited book. ( )

I know that this novel was inspired by a true story, but so much in it just seemed improbable. I can't say much without giving away the story, but I just found too much of this to be too coincidental. It's a light, predictable read. I didn't find it particularly moving or inspiring in any way. If you like sugar-sweet stories, you might enjoy this more than I did. ( )

And then I found you by Patti Callahan Henry
Beautiful story of a lady who becomes pregnant but the guy has gotten married tired of waiting for her.
Kate has the baby girl, Luna and gives her up for adoption. Her whole family remembers every March 20 of the birth. Jack and Kate exchange letters to one another about their life and reminiscing about Luna every year of her birth.
Chapters go from present to the past and then onto Emily who we learn is Luna and she's trying to find her birth mother.
We are able to figure out all the details and the emotions going through each other as the book goes on. Kate is to be married to Rowan and she meets with Jack as he's now divorced to make sure it's going to tell Rowan about Luna.
Things escalate as they agree to meet Emily...love the symbolism of the feathers.
Have recently listened and read other works by the author and have enjoyed the books.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )
