This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

A Perfect Day - Richard Paul Evans

Robert Harlan has always dreamed of being an author. When he suddenly finds himself unemployed, his wife encourages him to use the time to finish the book he has been writing for the previous few years.

As he finishes the book and is lucky enough to get it published, Robert's quiet and content life becomes a whole new world of book tours and fans lined up around the block.

Soon enough, Robert begins to drift further and further away from home, until one day it seems impossible to go back.

Enter a stranger, who gives Robert some unsettling news in which he must decide what he really wants.

For the most part, I did enjoy this book. However, if I am to be honest, I found the whole stranger-comes-in-and-changes-his-life to be a little off track and pulls away from the way the story was up until that point. I did not like that aspect of the book. I did like the rest of it though.

That sort of seems to be his theme though, don't you think? I have only read a couple of his other books... but in one it is a stranger who leads him to the statue and the other is a stranger in the airport... in each case the meeting with the stranger changes his life.

I wonder if that has actually happened to him (Richard Paul Evans) in his own life?

We should start an online book club :)
