Book Review - Changing Lanes – Kathleen Long

Sunday, April 21, 2013

This is one of those books that is bound to remind you of sometime or something in your life. That point where everything is going crazy and all the plans you have made are being shattered; that period of insecurity and indecision when you to have to re think and possibly re make your entire life. That time when you realize it is time for a change-even though you didn’t expect it to happen. And when the sand settles and you finally realize that maybe it really all was for the best. This happened to me a couple of times in my life, as a matter of fact it is happening right now! Just remember there is a rainbow after the storm. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will probably read it several more times! It is a fictional novel which depicts real life!


From the back of the book:

Abby Halladay has the perfect life. Or, rather, she will…as long as everything goes according to plan. Abby never leaves anything to chance –not her job as a syndicated columnist, not her engagement to her fiancé, Fred, and certainly not her impending wedding in Paris (New Jersey, that is).

Unfortunately for Abby, even the best laid plans often go awry—like when Fred runs away to Paris (France, that is), her column is canned, and her dream home is diagnosed with termites. Forced to move back in with her parents and drive her Dad’s cab, Abby finds that her perfect life has now officially become the perfect disaster.

Then a funny thing happens: slowly but surely, Abby begins letting go of her dreams of perfection. As she does, the messy, imperfect life she thought she never wanted starts to feel exactly like the one she needs.

Poignant and heartfelt, Changing Lanes celebrates the unexpected joys of everyday life—and the enduring promise of second chances.

This book will be on-sale on 5/14/13 at Amazon, it can also be ordered ahead of time

There is indeed a rainbow after the storm. Life has its ups and downs but, as long as we keep it together, we will survive. I love books that inspires me and this sure is a good one.

Another wonderful book to read, something different from the books I've used to know.

Based on your intro paragraph the book didn't sound like one I would want to read. Let's be honest, I am more of a YA paranormal, greek mythology, etc kind of gal. But after reading the synopsis I am quite interested! Definitely going to add it to my To-Read list.

The summary made me think of what becoming a mother did to me--having to let go of everything being perfect. Sounds like a great read. I'll have to add it to my growing reading list.
