… I’ll cry if I want to.
Oh boy, another birthday …
Karen could be excused for crying on her birthday, especially as it’s the first one since her husband got on a plane to the States and never came back. Then there’s the fact that her workmates were practically bribed to attend her birthday meal. But when a restaurant double booking leads to her sharing a table with single dad Elliot and his daughter, things start looking up.
As Karen gets to know Elliot she experiences feelings she thought she’d never have again. But is it enough? Or will the thing that destroyed Karen’s previous relationship also ruin things with Elliot?
Warm, encouraging, and poignant!
It’s My Birthday is a mature, romantic tale that takes us into the life of Karen as she meanders through all sorts of highs and lows, from struggling with infertility, turning forty, being newly divorced, a blossoming new romance, and an ongoing, deep-seated desire to become a mother.
The writing is fluid and sincere. The characters are multilayered, compassionate, and authentic. And the plot is a heartfelt journey of hope, heartbreak, friendship, family, parenthood, determination, independence, and happiness.
Overall, I would have to say that It’s My Birthday is a sweet, engaging, heartwarming novel that reminds you to always grab life by the horns no matter your age and to always follow your heart.
