Fiction Friday: Seven Year Switch



Seven Year Switch by Claire Cook

Roll out your beach blanket for this sweet summer read about making mistakes and moving on. Struggling and sassy single mom Jill-left to raise three-year-old Anastasia when husband Seth runs away to join the Peace Corp-is just about over the devastating loss when Seth reappears seven years later ready to pick up where they left off. 

Jill wrestles with her still-raw anger and her precocious daughter's heart-breaking need for her daddy back in her life. "Honey, if you don't forgive him, it'll eat you alive," counsels Jill's boss and best friend, Joni. For his part, "It wasn't the life we planned," Seth explains. But Anastasia helps him 

remember it's the life he needs while Jill discovers letting go teaches you how to hold onto new possibilities. Cook (Must Love Dogs) creates an impossible-not-to-love cast of imperfect, funny, wistful, and wise characters.
