Review & Giveaway:


Charlotte thought she knew what she was getting into when she married a man who is twenty years older than her. They end up moving to the home Henry has inherited and Charlotte could not believe how unfriendly the people are in her new hometown.

She ends up getting a bit too friendly with a farmer, Darryl, who is around her age. Everyone can see that spark that goes off when she and Darryl are together. Will she do the safe thing and stay in a stale marriage or will she finally give herself what she's always wanted?

This is one of those books that is great to read when you're in the middle of a transition in your life. It helps you figure things out for yourself even if your situation is completely different. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this is the type of book that hits home.
