A Girl's Guide to Moving On (New Beginnings #2) by Debbie Macomber
In this powerful and uplifting novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber, a mother and her daughter-in-law bravely leave their troubled marriages and face the challenge of starting over. Leaning on each other, Nichole and Leanne discover that their inner strength and capacity for love are greater than they ever imagined.
When Nichole discovers that her husband, Jake, has been unfaithful, the illusion of her perfect life is indelibly shattered. While juggling her young son, a new job, and volunteer work, Nichole meets Rocco, who is the opposite of Jake in nearly every way. Though blunt-spoken and rough around the edges, Rocco proves to be a dedicated father and thoughtful friend. But just as their relationship begins to blossom, Jake wagers everything on winning Nichole back—including their son Owen’s happiness. Somehow, Nichole must find the courage to defy her fears and follow her heart, with far-reaching consequences for them all.
Leanne has quietly ignored her husband’s cheating for decades, but is jolted into action by the echo of Nichole’s all-too-familiar crisis. While volunteering as a teacher of English as a second language, Leanne meets Nikolai, a charming, talented baker from Ukraine. Resolved to avoid the heartache and complications of romantic entanglements, Leanne nonetheless finds it difficult to resist Nikolai’s effusive overtures—until an unexpected tragedy tests the very fabric of her commitments.
An inspiring novel of friendship, reinvention, and hope, A Girl’s Guide to Moving On affirms the ability of every woman to forge a new path, believe in love, and fearlessly find happiness.
About The Author
As I began reading this book, I noticed that it was a stand alone, but was having flash backs to felling like I’ve read parts before, and other parts seemed so new. Finally I realized that I had been introduced to some of these characters before in “Last One Home”, and was so glad to get updates in all of their lives.
These women, whom are Mother-in-law and Daughter-in-law, are very close, and the men in their lives have followed the same path. Nichole has gotten out after five years of marriage, while Leanne was in hers for almost 35 years.
You will delight when you meet the new men in these women’s lives and feel how much they deserve to be cherished. Will they be able to maintain these new relationships considering their past?
Journey along as these ladies get back on their feet and become themselves once again.
I received this book through Net Galley and Ballentine Books and was not required to give a positive review.
