Summary Dear JaneDear Jane

Read é Dear Jane ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub The plan was to serve a mission marry her boyfriend and live happily ever after But all of that. Elements of this really worked well Others pulled me out enough I nearly stopped reading In all it s a good story and the ending was fantasticuinn is having a really bad year It starts with her boyfriend dumping her while she s on her LDS mission prologues ugh but worse one with an extended flashback double ugh but it goes downhill from there It s remarkable and kudos to Ward for this that so much tragedy didn t feel piled on or full of unnecessary drama There s a lot that goes wrong and it s very highly concentrated but the level of drama is proportionate and the characters react exactly as they would given everything we know about them The pitfalls of that much tragedy in a single book are legion and Ward handled it with such good grace that it never felt heavy while still providing an emotional catharsis that was extremely rewardingKey to that working is that uinn and Nick are such well drawn characters except for sometimes I ll get to that I liked uinn s courage and determination to do what s right And I liked that she s able to respond generously when provoked And Nick was even better in his honor and caring and I really loved how well Ward let us see his feelings for uinn even as she herself remains oblivious What didn t work so well were the occasions when Ward manipulated them to do stereotypical romance plot things that seemed otherwise completely out of character like with view spoileranything to do with Josh Seriously it messed with my ability to take uinn at all seriously that she didn t kick that jerk to the curb the minute he showed up It weakened my respect for her that she didn t drill down better into what the heck he was thinking and delve into the reasons why he wasn t with the woman he dumped her for Seriously this is important and that she just went along with his public marriage proposal sealed that whole aspect of the novel as an aberration that nearly made me stop reading in disgust hide spoiler

Read é Dear Jane ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Changed when uinn got a Dear Jane email Now she's stuck at home with no boyfriend no job no majo. First off I need to mention that this is an LDS fiction book References specific to the LDS religion are made There is nothing preachy but some not familiar with this religion may not understand the referencesI really enjoyed this book I read through it uickly and it made me smile The characters were well defined and I could picture the scenes and places so easily It s hard to say much without giving away the content of the book which the blurb doesn t really mentionuinn is a good solid character I really liked her Her family was flawed and imperfect but hers There was love with that imperfection and it was a good representation of most families There is always struggle and hard things in life Always Things rarely go as we expect them to People disappoint us we make mistakes we lose people we love Sometimes we just don t understand That is life Messy and hard I guess that was what I loved most about this book even though all of those things were happening there was still love and joy forgiveness and hope That is life tooThe author did a good job of balancing the weightier things with happy things so that as a reader I never felt bogged down or overwhelmed It was goodContent Some weightier issues suicide drug addiction mental illness divorce abandonmentI received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
