I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wynn Jeffries has wanderlust. Unfortunately, her life stalled somewhere between graduating from college and slinging drinks at the local dive bar. Stuck in a one-room apartment with no career, no boyfriend, no…life, she dreams of something more. Something amazing. Something like Oliver Reeves, her high school crush, who’s back in town and reminding Wynn of the way she used to be.
When a forgotten news clipping falls out of a book belonging to Wynn’s grandmother, a well-kept family secret is finally revealed. Is Wynn’s gypsy spirit the result of an overactive imagination, or did she inherit it from a woman so determined to live a big life, she gave up everything to have it?
Together, Wynn and Oliver attempt to put together the missing pieces of her family’s past and unravel the mystery behind her great-grandmother’s disappearance. But after so much time succumbing to fear and regret, can Wynn ditch her safe, routine life for the chance at an extraordinary future?
Emily Hemmer’s story was so engaging that it was a super quick read. I have added her to my list of authors to read and follow.
This is a story of love, past and present. It will make you laugh, and think about your choices in life. A humorous chick-lit success!!!
I was immediately drawn in to this story. I am just beginning my own ancestry search, so this book arrived with perfect timing, leaving me want to get to this information fast! I don’t think I will be as lucky as Wynn; finding keepsake papers that her Grandmother had kept. These items became a ground-breaking find for Wynn.
I am in love with the cover, and then the pages in between only made this book special to me. I need to get this copy in print, as I know I will read it again. It is definitely one of those stories!
I always enjoy books involving a relationship between a girl and her Grandmother; or Great-Grandmother, especially when they share a love or an interest.
I was inspired by Wynn’s relationship with Oliver; as well as, Lola and Michael.
This is a gift to read…even a great gift to give!
