. . . . For twenty years, Mikala Jacobson had it all: loyal friends, a precious little girl, and a man who adores her. Then double tragedy strikes and her perfect world shatters. Good friends, Rena and Jake are instantly by her side, protecting her from her husband David’s sordid secret life and his final drunken confession.
. . . . With their help, Mikala finds strength to rebuild and redefine her life. As her spirit and heart heal, she not only finds closure, but the beauty of a new love built upon an old friendship.
We were struck by two particular chapter titles from this precious story which tells of one woman's recovery from a hideous tragedy: Surviving the Un-Survivable and Men Don't Run; Men Don't Hide.
Somehow, some way, Mikala survives what to most of us would be un-survivable: the loss of a child.
Jake Cardona is a man who doesn't run, nor does he hide--even when Mikala, steeped in insurmountable grief, tells him to go away and leave her be. He doesn't go far--and not for long. This reader is better for it.
Six Months is a Put On Your Shelf and Re-Read it. Over and over again. Do not lend it to friends or family; you'll never get it back. It's that good..
On a scale of 1-5, Six Months deserves a 7
