Book Review - Shelter Me by Juliette Fay

Friday, January 29, 2010

When I first read the premise for this book I knew I would be able to easily put myself into the character's shoes. Shelter Me by Juliette Fay follows Janie LaMarche in the time after her husband unexpectedly dies in a motorcycle accident. Her husband's death leaves her sad, angry and totally lost trying to keep life together not only for herself but also for her two young children.

As she is pushing through each day of her new life a contractor shows up with plans to add a new porch to her house, a surprise from her late husband. She isn't sure how to deal with what life has handed her so she pulls away from the world in a desperate attempt to shelter herself and her children from further pain and heartache but in the end she realizes that the only way to move on is to embrace those around her willing to help.

I can't truly imagine what I would do if something happened to my husband leaving me to take care of our son on my own but I am thinking that my journey or healing would be a lot like Janie's.
