People Who Knew Me by Kim Hooper
I won't waste any time with any small talk, I will cut straight to the chase. I really loved this book! At the very end of this novel, I craved answers that only sitting in my car with my Kindle in hand could solve. I was enthralled by the characters in this book, and grew to be especially fond of Paul, Drew and Claire. Kim Hooper is an incredibly gifted writer, and I only hope that there is a sequel to this book. This should stand as my official plea to Kim to write the second installment of this story.
Emily Morris got her happily-ever-after earlier than most. Married at a young age to a man she loved passionately, she was building the life she always wanted. But when enormous stress threatened her marriage, Emily made some rash decisions. That’s when she fell in love with someone else. That’s when she got pregnant.
Resolved to tell her husband of the affair and to leave him for the father of her child, Emily’s plans are thwarted when the world is suddenly split open on 9/11. It’s amid terrible tragedy that she finds her freedom, as she leaves New York City to start a new life. It’s not easy, but Emily---now Connie Prynne―forges a new happily-ever-after in California. But when a life-threatening diagnosis upends her life, she is forced to rethink her life for the good of her thirteen-year-old daughter.
A riveting debut in which a woman must confront her own past in order to secure the future of her daughter, Kim Hooper's People Who Knew Me asks: “What would you do?”
