The Plans We Made by Cushman and Beccue
About The Book:
When past secrets hold the only key to hope for the future…Caroline Chapman is reeling from a broken engagement. Determined to start again, she moves cross-country for her dream job of planning events in the historical mansions of Newport, Rhode Island. Just as her life is getting back on track, she gets an email that shakes her very foundations. Linda Riley’s life looks picture perfect - a wonderful husband, two great kids, involved in church and the community. Then comes the diagnosis that shatters the facade. In order to save her son’s life, she must reveal secrets that can rip everything apart. Connected by more than painful circumstances, these two women discover a sacred bond. In this beautiful story of love, loss, and the fight for life, Caroline and Linda experience the reality that life doesn’t always go according to The Plans We Made.
I never understood how two authors could write one story, but these authors pull it off. And it is an excellent debut for Beccue. Indeed, it doesn't matter what plans we make in life, it could all change in an instant. I know that all too well. This is an emotional read, whether you have a connection to sickness or tragedy, or not. I could not put this book down and was done with it in 2 days.
