The Book of Someday by Dianne Dixon
Can your childhood affect your entire life?
THE BOOK OF SOMEDAY connects the lives of three unrelated women. Three women with different backgrounds and different lives. Three women with pasts, secrets, and regrets. Three women wanting and needing something that they never had before and are desperately trying to find. Three women looking for answers and an answer to why and to what happened.
Micah, AnnaLee, and Livvie were somehow connected, but what was that connection? Had they met at one point in their lives and were not aware of their meeting?
Who is this woman in a silver dress and pearl-button shoes? Could she be the connection between the three women? The three women who all need basically the same things out of life. Three women who question their relationships and the relationships they really didn’t have with family and others they cared about.
The chapters detail the lives of each character with no lull in the story. Libby's story definitely is a mystery with the other women woven in. Micah's story has a health issue. AnnaLee's story has social issues.
You will love Livvie and Grace. Andrew won’t be your favorite. You won’t like Micah. AnnaLee will pull at your heartstrings because of her unhappiness. Micah was quite cruel, AnnaLee was not happy, and Livvie was always feeling guilty and afraid but was the sweetest character who grew from her hurt.
Each story is skillfully wrapped into one well-executed story that definitely is unique and will keep you turning the pages. The author is amazing in the way she smoothly takes you from one life to the other leaving a tidbit of information at the end of each chapter that kept you hanging until that character appeared again with the continuation of her story.
THE BOOK OF SOMEDAY is ingenious. The writing is flawless, descriptive, and will pull you right in. The ending will blow you away. If I can use one word to describe the book it would be: WOW!!
I hope you get to read THE BOOK OF SOMEDAY and share the love and the lessons found in each chapter. I absolutely loved the book. 5/5
This book was given to me at the BEA free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
