This review is from: This Nearly Was Mine: A Novel (Kindle Edition)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book about Annie and the emotionally draining relationship she has with Spain and Francisco, with her husband Matthew and her challenging children. She does not seem able to leave behind the time and people she left behind in Spain and is totally reliant on a dream that may or may not have been! Life seems to come along and knock her for six at regular intervals and she clings to things that are not really there for her. She is a decent person, in my view trying to capture something she would have liked but never really came close to having (if that makes sense!)
I do not usually go for chick lit, but this was interesting and quite thought provoking! And I would very much look forward to reading Nancy Farkas' next book.
