(6) Your Roots Are Showing by Elise Chidley

Lizzie Buckley has had enough.
Her three year old twins keep her beyond busy. She needs to maintain the "perfect" ancestral home that has been in her husband's family for generations & well, she has just had enough. Exhaustion dogs her every step, she never lost the baby weight, & a husband that does very little to help out has pushed her over the edge.
She is so exhausted that she doesn't realize that the venting email that was intended for her sister, Janie, was sent to her husband, James.
And just like that, it is over. James comes home, packs his bags & tells her to hire a divorce attorney. In the months following that dreaded email Lizzie learns a little bit about love & a lot about herself. But is it too late to save her marriage?
Your Roots Are Showing is a story about a woman trying to survive post-pregnancy life. It is about the importance of communication & compromise in a marriage. It may be hard to read, because Lizzie is such an identifiable character, but it is not pretty. But then again, neither is Motherhood.

Sounds like a good book. I might be able to read it when I finally get my work reset up.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
