On a Someday
On a Someday by Roxanne Henke is the latest novel that I read. If you have read some of Henke's other books, you will recognize some of the characters, but you would not have to read other books by her to make sense of this stand alone novel. This is the story of what happens when you get what you want, but also how that is not really what you wanted in the first place. Jim, Claire, and Drew (dad, mom, grown son) all have a significant role in the story. Jim owns Westin Foods in North Dakota, Claire's career as an author and speaker are taking off, and Drew is a successful loan office in New York City. Each chapter tells what is happening in the life of one of the characters, and of course, each character's life is woven into the other two. A good story, and one that makes you think about what is really important. If you have read any of Henke's other books, you would like this one. If you haven't, read this one and you will probably want to read more.
