ON A REVIEW SITE:
What a wonderful and charming romance! There was something about this book that had me connecting to it right from the beginning.
Olivia is a fifty seven year old wife and mother. She has dedicated her life to her husband and her children.
Just when she thinks that she will be able to settle into the final chapter in her life and enjoy her grown children and all that entails she is thrown a huge curveball.
Her husband Alan gets a job transfer. She has to move from her home in Texas to Chicago.
Can she reinvent herself and leave behind her children and her beautiful house?
What if Chicago holds a future she could have never imagined?
Like I said before, this book somehow manages to draw you right in. I was even holding back tears right from the start.
Especially when Olivia and her daughter are drinking wine and saying goodbye to the house.
Another thing I loved was how many characters this book had. They were all very well developed and they each brought a unique element to the book.
Overall this book is a solid five stars and I will definitely be recommending it to all of my friends who read romance.
Olivia is a good woman, a good mother, a good wife. She’s got it made. She doesn’t want anything to change.
Of course, it does…
Swept from her perfect paper-doll life in Houston, Olivia finds herself in Chicago, alone, betrayed, and far from home. Soon everything she thought she knew about herself and her life will be challenged. She has only courage, love, and her passion for music to carry her through the maelstrom—or draw her further in.
Ash is the man who has everything—everything except healing from the losses of a lifetime. His only peace lies in the sweet flow of music pouring from his guitar.
What happens when the married woman and the widower are thrown together by fate?
Out of the Box Awakening is a story of shared passion and shared joy. Jennifer Theriot has written a compelling book about what happens when two people find new life and new love for themselves and for those around them.
