Family for Beginners by Sarah Morgan
Special thanks to Harlequin for providing our copy in exchange for an honest & fair review.
I am a total Sarah Morgan fangirl. As soon as I read the prologue, I’m getting loads of Liane Moriarty vibes. Multiple narrators, a secret that’s bubbling beneath the surface & families dealing with heartache & loss. I just love this book.
Sarah Morgan is able to write about heavier topics in a way that is comforting, positive & warms your heart. For instance, Family for Beginners by Sarah Morgan deals with a good amount of grief. Jack is a single dad. Along with his two daughters, he is reeling from the death of his wife/their mother.
Meanwhile, we meet Flora. She is florist & readers know immediately that her heart is authentic. Flora suffered the loss of her mother at a young age. A chance meeting between Jack & Flora seems incredibly serendipitous. Readers see how the connections are made between Flora & Jack’s daughters. Through alternating narrators, we get a full story.
For me, this is a tale of healing, second chances, acceptance & love. Sometimes we find relief & grace where & when we least expect it. Family for Beginners by Sarah Morgan further solidifies my love for this author. You can read my review for The Christmas Sisters, One Summer in Paris & A Wedding in December.
