When We Let Go by Rochelle B. Weinstein

 

When Avery Beckett is proposed to by Jude Masters, a widowed father and the man she loves, it should be a time of great joy. Instead, Avery is on edge. She’s wary of the idea of family, doubtful of happy endings, and too afraid to take the leap. It’s the kind of fear that comes from having secrets.

Before Avery commits to a new life, she must reconcile with the one she left behind.

When Avery returns to her childhood farm in the North Carolina mountains, she’s surprised to be saddled with a companion: Jude’s teenage daughter, Elle, who’s grappling with the loss of her mother and the complicated emotions of first love. On a path of mending wounds and breaking down walls, Avery and Elle form an unexpected alliance. It’s giving them the courage to move forward. And for Avery, everything she needs to confront the past.

An emotional tale of mothers and daughters, loss and acceptance, When We Let Go is about the lessons that come from heartbreak and the healing it takes to embrace the joy of a second chance.

My Review


 The author has given a read that is full of love and loss, the hard part of moving on after devastation.
Be ready for this book to grab you, full of emotions, and the outcome is unknown until the end.
The young woman, Avery, has suffered the loss of her love and child, gone, and she blames herself. She also has become estranged from her sister, the woman who raised her beginning at age 8.
We are also given Luke, a man who has lost his wife and mother of his three children, two boys, and a young teenage daughter Elle.
After reacting badly when Jude proposes, Avery receives devastating news, and has to head home to NC, not realizing she has a stowaway!
This is a journey to healing and forgiveness. In the end it is forgiving yourself before you can move on.
I received this book through Net Galley and Lake Union Publishing, and was not required to give a positive review.
