Jessie is in a funk. She’s basically living as a hermit on an island that is in it’s off season. Her daughter is off in New York trying to be an actress, and her son died in a tragic hit and run accident. Trying to find where she belongs Jessie opens her horizons and begins to try some new things, like yoga and cooking which end up being a lot more fun when she meets her new younger friend Amy. Just as Jessie is enjoying life again her past comes back to bite her. How will Jessie cope with and will she ever really lose her “wobble”?
I found this book hard to get into at first. Reading about Jessie’s hermit existence was pretty boring and the prologue made no sense. I stuck with it and found myself beginning to really enjoy the book once Amy and Jackson were introduced. The more I learned about Jessie’s life the more I was cheering for her to overcome her past and finally be happy. Then when I finally got to the epilogues (there were three!) everything I thought I knew about this character’s story was pulled away from me and left me feeling mad, but at least it finally tied the prologue into the book. Granted, it was a shock and one I never saw coming, but it felt like a slap in the face at the same time because of this shock I rated this book 3 out of 5 stars.
