We don’t know about you, but we love us a redemption arc, which is why we picked this list of listens that’s sure to drag you down and then lift you up higher than when you started. Here we meet characters who make their mistakes and then own them, which is refreshing; unlike our mother-in-law. BRB we’re sending Lorraine a link to any one of these.
The Whittiers – Danielle Steel
Here we meet the perfectly imperfect Whittier family as they struggle with life and loss- strained relationships and bad decisions abound as the siblings and parents wonder if they’ll be able to find their way back to each other, and heal some of the most important and formative relationships of their lives.
Rules for Visiting – Jessica Francis Kane
What do you do when your life is seemingly great, but you’re lonely? May asks this same question in Kane’s touching novel all about self-discovery, redemption, and the power of friendship. It’s a testament to the relationships we build, those we lose, and those we attempt (and maybe successfully) to mend all in the name of human resilience.
How it Feels to Float – Helena Fox
Fox’s listen tasks us to contemplate the role our mental health has in our daily lives and to examine the power we give our mind over ourselves. Detachment might be safer, but is it really a better way to live? What if the very thing that keeps us going is the one thing that is hurting us the most? In young Biz, we see a portrait of a character who is discovering who she is, and who she could be if she’s brave enough to get out of her own way and start being real with everyone, including herself.
