This is a very compelling and moving book about a widow’s journey of self-discovery and of capturing the essence of herself outside the boundaries of wife, widow, mother, daughter, business woman.
Retreating for a yearlong escape from her ordinary, Jamie Barlow finds a new definition of herself in the mountain home she and her deceased husband own. Embracing nature and the beauty that surrounds her, Jamie embarks on a personal campaign to discover who she really is as an individual not defined by her roles. Along the way, she meets Jacob Kelly, a lost soul seeking meaning in a life that has lost it. Their relationship builds and grows as they learn from each other how to live in a world that has completely changed for them both.
