Mind of Her Own by Diana Lesire Brandmeyer
When I started this book I thought wow what a great way to get out of doing the household chores til I realized she was not faking it. Then I got scared that she forget about her life and thought she was someone else and not married, no kids, etc.
She returns to the house where Collin tries to help more around the house and with the kids. He discovers journals from Louisa and starts reading them, not realizing it's her true feelings, about them and life.
He tries to make things better for Jazz by doing things he's never done before with her and the kids-taking time from work and having fun activities with them all. Scents might jog her memory so he gives her many things to smell and sometimes it does remind her of some things in the past.
She brings up things he never knew about and she swears she's a writer but not bookstores carry her books.
They all go to her family reunion where she recalls one tragic event and it comes to light what happened when she was just a child and it puts one of her children in harm's way and Collin helps to stop it from happening again.
He had also never realized how much church mattered and being part of the community with religious beliefs. Good read, kept me interested and was fun to read about. Other inspirational works by other authors are highlighted at the end of this book.
I received this book from Book Club Network (bookfun.org) in exchange for my honest review.
