it was amazing
bookshelves: first-reads

Splendid and delightful! Your Roots Are Showing by Elise Chidley is a perfect under the covers read. The main character, Lizzie, is an exhausted mother of twin toddlers. She inadvertently alienates her husband and finds herself starting life over (alone) from square one. Though she still is very much in love with her ex-husband, Lizzie is forced to make is best of it and re-build a life of her own.

This book runs the gamut from humorous to heart breaking to deliciously romantic. Lizzie is a heroine with spunk; if you are a mom or a wife, you’ll just get her from the first page. Chidley relays the story with impressive ease which makes for a wonderful debut. I highly recommend this novel--you simply can’t ask for a more enjoyable read.

Jessica Sounds fun and deep--odd combination. I'm going to have to add it to my to-read list (which is getting too long). Thanks for the detailed review.
