Yes. I am in awe with "Days of Awe" by Lauren Fox. Isabel Moore, in her early 40s is in a state of reverential wonder (not in a good way) as we open with the funeral of her best friend, Josie, who died in a single car accident. As she grapple with her grief of such a lost, her marriage has fallen apart, and trying to understand a moody daughter heading towards her teen years. Can we relate? Do we relate? Ms. Fox gave us an honest portrayal of what goes through a woman's mind as her world, as she know it is falling apart.
"Days of Awe" is smart, funny, satirical in some aspects, sad, pathetic at times and Isabel's self-deprecating narration just makes you want to give her your two-cents. As you read this, you won't be able to be nonchalant about it. You'll feel a need to jump in there and enjoy the past, the present and hopefully towards a promising future with her. In all, enjoy the humor as you follow a woman's mind through her "not-yet" midlife crisis, but an adventure for a new start to learn about who she really is.
NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of this e-book from the publisher, Knoft Doubleday Publishers through Net Galley for an honest review.
