Me for You #ourgoodlifebooklist

If you are dealing with the loss of a spouse or a child, this may not be the book for you.  Author Lolly Winston tells an accurate portrayal of both, Rudy who lost his beloved wife Bethany and Sasha, who lost her little girl who drowned at a neighbor's pool.

I was given this book for free in exchange for my honest review.



Rudy and Sasha both work at the same department store, Rudy as a piano player and Sasha as a salesman in the watch department.  Sasha enjoys listening to Rudy as he plays, and he plays tunes that originated from Sasha's homeland.  Rudy, the kind and gentle man that he is, enjoys pleasing Sasha with his song choices.

Winston throws in a lot of twists and turns, none which really add much to the storyline.  Someone confesses to murdering Bethany, their daughter's marriage falls apart, Sasha's husband comes back to her after years of being gone, Rudy ends up in a psyc ward and the man confessing to the murder was lying.  

I thought the characters were charming and I really hope that Sasha and Rudy get together!  I think they deserve one another and it is apparent that Rudy is smitten with Sasha. 

While the book may be a bit overdone, it would be an excellent choice for a book club.  How people imagine or experience grief is unique to all, but there are some universals that would make a great discussion.  There is a wonderful book club guide here.

If you are interested in purchasing this book, consider purchasing it from me!  I get a small fee but the book's price is the same for you.  Little actions like this one help keep this blog going!

  2. This sounds like an interesting read. I've always found works surrounding grief to be very appealing. I've had to work through my share of it, and I enjoy seeing how authors portray the struggle.
