In I Almost Forgot About You, Dr. Georgia Young's wonderful life--great friends, family, and successful career--aren't enough to keep her from feeling stuck and restless. When she decides to make some major changes in her life, quitting her job as an optometrist, and moving house, she finds herself on a wild journey that may or may not include a second chance at love. Like Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, I Almost Forgot About You will show legions of readers what can happen when you face your fears, take a chance, and open yourself up to life, love, and the possibility of a new direction."
This was one of those reads that you will not want to put down this engaging and entertaining read until the end. The author offers the her readers so much in her read from relationships between best friends. ex-spouses, ex-lovers, parents, children, grandchildren, friendship, humorous, with some very interesting characters, love of family, second chance with a past lover, gay, lesbian, self discovery, to commitment and even more you may find when you pick up the read.
I loved reading about Dr. Georgia Young[African-American] who was a Optometrist in her mid 50's, twice divorced, two daughter and now she thought it would be a wonderful idea to contact her old lovers and let them know just how much they had meant to her in her life. Just why would she want to do this? To find out you will have to pick up this well written read to see how and why this author brings it out so well to her readers. What will Ms. Georgia who was a 'home owner, attractive and independent' find out about her life as she looks back on what has gone on the first half of her life?
Be ready for a little bit of it all as the readers are lead on a journey.....from "love, regrets, romance, love inspiration" with a wonderful protagonist that will keep it so real to the readers from page one to the end.
What I especially liked about "I Almost Forgot About You" showed that just because you are in your mid 50's [or whatever] doesn't mean you are at the end of your life...for many it may be time to start a brand new chapter.
Thank you 'Blogging For Books' for gifting this read to me for my honest opinion of the read.
