Be More Anne
The Imperfect Art Of Caring by Jessica Ryn is the most delightful contemporary novel that warmed my heart and left me smiling.
The novel is set in a small community where the reader meets the various characters. We witness many experiencing the loneliness and isolation of living alone. Behind closed doors there are many needs.
As a huge hearted character enters the community, hearts, homes and lives expand. Community life is once more ignited and functions as it did in the past, with every one supporting each other.
Jessica Ryn explores the life of the carer and of those being cared for. We witness the difficulties, isolation and the paperwork minefields. As characters come together, those with experience help others behind them on life’s road.
Characters have pulled away from society either through choice or because others believed they were safer alone. As lives begin to bud, beautiful friendships blossom.
A nineteen year old with learning difficulties has been hidden away. As she is befriended, a brand new world opens up, full of possibilities which is beautiful to witness.
There are many kind hearts within the novel as Jessica Ryn has once more drawn realistic and wonderful characters. I am sure we would all have richer lives if we knew a Violet or a Tammy.
Everyone has dreams. Sometimes we hold back from participating in life and fulfilling our dreams because we believe that we are unworthy. We are listening to the wrong voices as characters are drowning in guilt and lack of self-worth. We all need someone to love us and to believe in us, so that we can pursue our dreams.
The Imperfect Art Of Caring is such a beautiful novel. I loved it. I always love a book by Jessica Ryn.
I received a free copy from Harper Collins via Net Galley. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own
