Saturday night arrived all too soon.
I’d been busy all day packing the bedroom, and was now finishing up packing my studio, sorting through the tubes of acrylic paint and brushes, deciding which ones to keep for shipping or discard. I wrapped up my canvases and finished taping boxes shut when Drake arrived home from the hospital after spending time signing papers and seeing the last of his patients.
He popped his head in the doorway.
“Hey,” he said, his gaze moving around the room, taking in the emptiness of it, and the boxes piled in the center of the room. “Time to get ready.”
I exhaled heavily, unable to hide the reluctance I felt about going to Michael and Claire’s house for the going away party.
Drake heard me and forced a smile. “I know, I know…” He came over to where I stood surrounded by packing boxes and put his hands on my shoulders. “You don’t have to come if you don’t want to. I’ll understand.”
“It doesn’t matter to you?”
He shook his head. “I’d like to be with you, I’d like you beside me, but I understand if you’d rather not have to face Claire. And Sam.”
“Sam, too?” I said and made a face. Of course I knew Sam would be there along with all the other interns, residents and staff who worked with Drake, as well as faculty from the medical college and some of Drake’s senior students.
“Unfortunately.” Drake bent down and looked in my eyes. “If you come, I promise to keep your hand in mine the entire time we’re there. You won’t have to deal with either of them alone, if that’s what you’re worried about.”
I shook my head. “No, it’s fine. Before the safari, I could have spent time with Claire while you did your rounds with your students and the staff, saying goodbye, but now…”
“Michael promised Claire would be on her best behavior.”
I laughed ruefully at that. What was Claire’s best behavior? I had visions of her standing off to the side of the room, whispering with Sam. It didn’t make me feel like going to the party. It felt more like I would be going to an inquisition.
I had to tell myself that I would be leaving with Drake for Manhattan on Tuesday morning. Soon, Claire and Sam would be far away.
“I’ll be fine,” I said and forced a smile. “I’m a big girl. I’ll hold a drink in my hand and smile, listen to conversations, and try to avoid them both.”
“I’ll have your arm hooked through mine. You’ll be my arm candy.”
“Arm candy?” I said with a laugh. “If you put it that way…”
He pulled me into his arms and rocked me gently back and forth. “Arm candy. Brain candy. Heart candy. All three.”
“When you put it like that, how can I refuse?”
I had a quick shower and dressed, putting on the sundress that Drake liked so much, despite it being informal, but he wanted me to wear it so I complied. Drake came into the bathroom while I was standing in front of the mirror curling my hair and he sat on the edge of the tub, watching me get ready as he liked to do.
“Are you sure this dress is appropriate for tonight?” I asked, catching his eye in the mirror.
“Entirely appropriate. It’s my favorite dress. I want to gaze at you and enjoy how the fabric hugs your curves.”
I smiled to myself and curled a long lock of hair, then tucked it into my updo with a bobby pin.
“You’re ready to go?” I asked as I applied some lip gloss. I checked him out. He looked devastatingly handsome, of course. His black hair was shiny and slightly wild, but incredibly sexy over his dark arched brows and blue blue eyes fringed with thick black lashes.
God, he was gorgeous…

My review of The Promise of Provence by Patricia Sands



This book is a beautifully poetically written journey of a woman whose life is changed overnight. Katherine thought she was in a loving marriage and is rushing home to meet her husband, James, for their 22nd wedding anniversary. Upon arriving home, she finds her traditional anniversary bouquet along with a note from James. Essentially, he is leaving her for a younger woman who has impregnated. (I say, “Adios, dirty bag!”) Clearly brokenhearted, Katherine reexamines her life over the past 22 years with James, a.k.a. “dirt bag”. During this time, Andrea, her cousin, her friend, Molly, and Katherine’s mother enter into the story.

Ultimately, Katherine decides to travel to France. During her travels in France, she meets some wonderful people and a few not so gracious people.  Although, I have never been to France, our outside of the United States for that matter, the author writes with such eloquent vibrancy that you feel you are along with Katherine and experiencing everything that she is experiencing.The beauty of the author’s writing is truly exceptional.

This book is 466 pages long and is entwined with so many stories that interconnect in such a way that reveals the beauty of friendship, heartbreak, loss, renewal, history, travels, self-discovery, love, and bravery.

I am not even able to write a fair review of the book because I do not want to give anything away! You absolutely must read this book. It was so refreshing to see a woman in her mid fifties learn to really enjoy life for possibly the first time as an adult woman without a man immediately coming to her rescue! Go Katherine!

I give this book four of out four pain aux raisins!

à demain!

I was given this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My reviews are my own opinions.

My review of Seven Secrets of Worry-Free Living


This was a different read for me but as I suffer from GAD I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and review something a little different. This book is about stress and anxiety, its effects on our mind and bodies, and how to manage and reduce stress. It is a relative easy read and contains some medical research but it is written in a way that a layperson can understand it. It is christian based book and does include a lot of reference to scripture. Also, this book has discussion questions at the end for a group study.
Even if you are not a religious person, there are still several benefits to this book. There are tests in the book to determine your level of stress and your child’s level of stress (which I found personally beneficial), ways to reduce stress (not just praying) and helpful ways to handle stress that are also not religious based. Therefore, I think believers and non-believers would benefit from this book.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with the opportunity to review this book free of charge.

This book will be available from Amazon on August 1, 2015, but is available for pre order now.

Seven Secrets of Worry-Free Living: Finding Freedom from Fear, Anxiety, and Stress

My review of Silent Cry


What a remarkable story about Ms. Newton strength, courage, and unfailing faith.
Dorothy, raised in a physically abusive home as a child, overcomes so many adversities during her life, and has so many blessings in her life. She is truly an inspiration as to what you can achieve with your life. Her faith in God was such an inspiration to me.
I also enjoyed the added interviews from her two children and her ex-husband.
Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to review this book!
