Review: Chesapeake Song by Brenda Lane Richardson

Her thirteen-year marriage troubled by hurt and doubts, Tamra Lane embarks on a spiritual journey into her past and draws strength from the experiences of her mother and grandmother.

Although I felt this book started slowly, I grew more and more drawn into the story. It is a love story that explores the paths our lives take based on our childhood, or heritage, or experiences. Tamra loves her husband. She loves her children. How then can she walk away in search for herself. Ms. Richardson uses flashbacks to explore Tamra's life in Nanticoke Maryland, her family relationships and the consequences of her life and her relationships. The story involves love, marriage, family obligations, careers, substance abuse, life and death. It is a story worth exploring and I was happy with the ending. It's just life after all. 

Although I purchased this book a long while ago, so it doesn't meet the criteria for Read The Books  You Buy Challenge 2016 hosted by Kathryn at Book Date, it does meet the guidelines for the 2016 Women's Fiction Reading Challenge.  

This book is out of print, but you may be able to find it at your library or used book store. When I looked today, Amazon has it on sale for $5.60 and only 1 left!!  Just FYI!

Stay Busy and Stay Happy
