I like this author. She is so real and honest and spot on about real life. This story is about a woman, Mattie, who is recently divorced, has a declining mother and two confused children and is still pining for her ex while figuring out her life and talking to God for help. Her life is messy and she makes the wrong choices over and over. I like the author's observations on life, her spot on portrayal of family relations. I ended up not liking Mattie and wanting to shout at her to get her act together. I don't think there was a moral or lesson in the story so much as a picture of how people muddle through.
