Nobody writes gritty and determined characters – based on real-life people – as well as Jane Kirkpatrick. This one held me from the opening sentences.
Jennie Pickett married young, thus ending her dreams of becoming a doctor. Being a wife and mother was a full-time job, but add in an unreliable husband, and she had her hands full. When she suddenly finds herself on her own, she takes a position as a live-in nurse. One thing leads to another – never easily or smoothly – until her dreams come true … at a cost.
As always, Jane will pull you through a gamut of emotions. Jennie’s life is a carousel of highs and lows. There is no “perfect ending,” this is real life, lived hard, and dedication to cause. It’s not neat and tidy, but it’s inspiring.
