Four lives. Four stories. Four sets of letters. Four brave souls in need of guidance while facing life's greatest challenges.
The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons...and prove their existence.
With their lives teetering between wanting more and losing it all, all four souls dive into the program as a New Year’s resolution, sending them on a crazy, life-altering journey.
Please be kind.
Yours truly, Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter.
It is no secret what a fan I am of Meghan Quinn and it seems like there is a new tradition happening that I hope never stops. Last year, my first five star read was The Mother Road by Meghan. This year, my first five star read is Dear Life. Two absolute completely different books, which only shows just how talented Meghan is. This is the perfect example of why I will read anything she puts out. Anything.
Dear Life is a beautifully written, thought-provoking and powerful story that tugs at not only your heart but your mind as well. I cried. I laughed. Most importantly, I questioned my own life choices to see what I am doing to “prove my existence,” as Meghan calls it.
Four strangers with four totally different life situations and experiences who are struggling to make sense of where they are in their life. One program brings these strangers together and forces them to face the reality of the situation and learn to accept it, learn from it, move on from it and grow from it. These four strangers will find the most unlikely friends with one of the strongest supports anyone could wish for. Every single person can relate to at least one of their stories and each one of them makes you feel everything right along with them.
Normally I have a favorite in each book. I don’t think I’ve ever equally liked all the main characters and I’ll be honest, at first I thought Carter would be the one that pushes past everyone else. But just as I think the brooding man (my kind of book boyfriend) wins my heart, Hollyn will do something. Or Jace. Or Daisy. Each person had a story and a journey that was difficult. Together they meet the mark in anything I could ask out of characters. They were all relatable and likable and had me rooting for them from the very beginning.
I really don’t think there is much more to say unless you want me to scream how much I loved it. I do. I will already call it in my top books of 2017. I challenge you to read this. I challenge you to embrace it. I challenge you to take the time and examine it and allow it to make you think about your own life and your goals. Well done, Meghan. You continue to soar and deliver us amazing stories. I can’t wait to continue to ride along with you as you keep going.
