Dear Life by Meghan Quinn

NA Contemporary Romance
Designed by: Meghan Quinn
Photographer: Lauren Perry

Four lives. Four stories. Four sets of letters. Four brave souls in need of guidance while facing life's greatest challenges.

The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons...and prove their existence.

With their lives teetering between wanting more and losing it all, all four souls dive into the program as a New Year’s resolution, sending them on a crazy, life-altering journey. 

Dear Life, 

Please be kind. 

Yours truly, Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter.

My Thoughts: 

Jace: This athlete just had one of the best rookie years baseball has ever seen but life is about to get a lot more complicated.  Jace now has to make a very hard decision that will affect him the rest of his life.

Hollyn:  Hollyn is barely living…devastating loss will do that to you.  How are you supposed to keep living when you don’t want to?

Carter:  Carter has never had it easy and just when he thinks his dreams are finally about to come true, Life pulls the rug out from under him.  Bitter doesn’t even begin to describe how he feels.

Daisy:  This innocent woman has had such a sheltered upbringing that she doesn’t even know what she has missed.  Circumstances change and Daisy is ready to live but can she get past her fears and really experience life on her own?

     What do these four people have in common? Not much except that they have all just gone through life altering ordeals and they need to heal and start again.  That is where the Dear Life program comes in.  Weekly meetings to help you get through your stages of grief, forgive Life, and learn to live again and enjoy it. 
     Meghan Quinn has given us a wonderful book on love, loss and getting back up when Life kicks you and knocks you down.  This is a slight departure from her other books in that there are less sexy times and outrageous, hilarious moments.  Instead we get tears and smiles and healing. 
     I think that Jace’s story is my favorite and probably the one that made me cry the most.  Since this story was so personal to Meghan’s I believe that is why this story in particular was so emotional and touching.  All of the other characters had great storylines as well but this one just got me right in the heart.
 If you are in need of a great PMS-y cry or a good-but-uplifting angst-y story pick this one up!

4/5 stars
