THE FAMILY YOU MAKE
Jill Shalvis releases a heartwarming story of found family and love.
Today on the blog, we have a book review for The Family You Make by Jill Shalvis. The Family You Make is the first book in a new series, Sunrise Cove, written by New York Times bestselling author, Jill Shalvis.
In The Family You Make, Jill Shalvis tackles friendship, family, love, fear, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. She shows us how bonds can be formed during a near death experience. Bonds that redefine who we are and who we are meant to become. She teaches us how the past sometimes can hold us back, preventing us from finding the happiness we want but don’t think we deserve to have.
Levi and Jane are two people who have made a habit of leaving, avoiding, and standing alone. But when they are forced to depend on each other, things begin to change, in ways neither one of them could have predicted or prepared. They might play pretend on the surface, but underneath all that pretense, is something that feels all too real. And it shakes up their entire world.
A beautiful, heartfelt tale of forging new connections, rebuilding bridges that burned, and finding the courage to accept something new, something real, and something lasting, The Family You Make takes readers on an emotional journey that seeks to define what family is and how it is made. How the past cannot be erased, but a heart can be mended, and a future can be found. All it takes is a little faith…and whole lot of courage.
Rich, endearing, and honest, with the fun sense of humor Shalvis is known for and a flawed cast of characters readers will want to root for, The Family You Make is everything a single title women’s fiction novel should be. And then some.
