Book Details
Author: Sarah Dunster
Release Date: October 2013
Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc.
Genre: Drama

This book pulls at your heart-strings and makes you wonder...what would you do if you lost your best friend, your soul-mate, your spouse? And how fast would you be able to move on?

Written with such raw emotions this book is one you just can 't put down.

SO. SO. SO. AMAZINGLY. GOOD! 
LOVED it from the very first page!

Lots of very interesting questions are brought up throughout these pages....and are given as a great book club discussion at the end of the book.

Abish has had a very hard year!

First her husband expectantly dies...so she is dealing with that grief.

Then she is kicked out of her apartment, has to move into a "single's apartment," AND a "single's ward."

Finds herself in some really awkward positions and places.

She is back in school and training for a marathon

And all the while she keeps asking "What did I do to earn this?"

Can she really find her way? Can she trust "that the plan is a plan of happiness?"

This is a book that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page!

About the Author
I am the mother of seven children, age ten and under. They are adorable and they bring light to my life. Writing is what keeps me sane.

TEN FUN THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SARAH
1) I make my own sushi. Because I'm addicted to it and live in Idaho.

2) I have seven (soon to be 8 children) and they drive me CRAZY! And make me HAPPY. Two of them are adopted from Ethiopia.

3) I love to cook international food. I'm pretty good at Indian and Ethiopian food. Most of my kids love anything spicy.

4) I get really shy at book signings. Sometimes I feel like I'm just shoving bookmarks in peoples' hands for no reason. But I actually do really like people.

5) I love fishing but have never caught a keep-able fish in my life.

6) I love board and card games but I think I can count the number of times I've won on one hand.

7) I have lived in Idaho and Utah, but I grew up in California, right around the area where my ancestors settled. I'm actually an 8th generation Californian, and I have a great grandfather whose nickname was "wild bill." (not Hickok, another Wild Bill. There were probably a lot of them...)

8) One of my far-fetched dreams is to buy an old building in town, refurbish it, make it into a stage/auditorium and start a small acting company. Completely far-fetched because I can'tact to save myself, and I have never directed in my life.

9) My husband is a fantastic dancer. Was on a university team for five years. Every wife's dream, right? However, I can't dance to save myself... (fully plan on learning, however. Once my last baby is old enough to be home long enough for us to be gone long enough to take lessons.)

10) I love my family! They're big and often disorganized and our house is sometimes not too tidy, but I wouldn't trade a single one of them for anything.
