God certainly has a plan in what He has me read. I am 50 years old and feeling very lonesome, sad, and useless in my "empty nest". This book arrived a good while ago and it got pushed far underneath a piece of furniture and I discovered it last week. As I began reading, I thought to myself....wow! A lot of what Mave is experiencing is quite similar to my life right now.
Mave is grieving the years when her two children were home, and she is urged to do something to "get a life" by her friend, Trish. She happens upon Second Chance Ministries and discovers her calling when she teaches Creative Writing to troubled teens. She has issues with her own father, who is in a nursing home due to his Alzheimer's. Dareece helps her and her husband, Jerry, as much as she helps him.
Trish leads a Bible study in her home on Song of Solomon and Mave attends. Trish encourages the ladies to accept The 21-Day Romance Challenge to improve their marriages. This "Challenge" is included in the book at the conclusion as well as the Song of Solomon Bible study.
This book truly moved me. I think that is because it touched so "close to home" for me at this point in my life. There is encouragement to minister in some way as well. You don't have to be in your "Empty Nest Years" to enjoy this book. I am already planning to share it with my 79 year old mother as I think she will thoroughly enjoy it too!
