Do you ever feel like life has beaten you down to the point you just want to hide from the world? Do you want to run away from your past and forget everything?
In Reviving Jules by Peggy Trotter, one woman does exactly that.
Jules Summers has fled from everything and everyone familiar. Determined not to be found and to just survive, she settles in a small town in Indiana. Needing something to keep her mind busy, she searches for ways to fill her free time. And then one day, a little girl shows up in her yard to look at the fish.
Andi Carsen and her father, Rhett strike up an unlikely friendship with Julie. As Rhett continues to come to the rescue, Jules fights for her independence. Why, oh why, can’t she do anything on her own? And will she ever wake up without tears?
Can two people, with the help of an entertaining, energetic, and observant little girl, heal and obtain a life full of hope?
Trotter creates a world that draws the reader in. One where you will want to hug Jules one minute and shake her to tell her to wake up and look around her the next. The addition of Andi Carsen brings many laughs and smiles to a story that is sometimes filled with the hard truths of life.
This one is definitely one to add to your TBR pile!!
