a series of events rocked Bernie's world mercilessly. after the death of their first child, her husband Ryan left her for another woman he impregnated; it was followed by her father's sudden death, leaving behind brokenhearted family members; then her best friend Diane announced an unplanned pregnancy at the age of 41. she found herself quitting her job for a change and fell through the coming months stumbling through these events over and over again.
the book was an absolute fast read! Bernie was no stranger to loss and heartache, but as she struggle through these pains, she soon found her turning point once she decided to face reality. Bernie was a character very easy to relate to, her life not much different from us yet so very different. with some very heavy matters, the book was surprisingly uplifting and enjoyable. it was funny yet so very heartbreaking, and can be easily finished reading in one sitting.
