The story revolves around several characters but the main character of this novel is Libby Morgan. Libby Morgan has recently lost her job and is in a devastated state. She had put her whole life at stake which included her marriage just to get partnership offered at her firm. As an unemployed person she discovers herself doing things that she never thought she would, such as rocking babies at the nursery, knitting at the yarn store, helping a pregnant teenager and falling in love with a person who is known to have the heart of a stone at the hospital. But soon after finding happiness in her new life she is called back at the firm which would mean long hours of work and no time for the precious bonds that she recently developed in her life.
Starting Now is packed with lots of love, friendship, some romance here and there, and motivation for someone who is planning to start over. This is an ideal book to be read during the winter season while tightly wrapped in your warm blanket. Debbie Macomber has done a tremendous job with this novel. I am planning to buy more of her novels in the coming year.
Below I have shared one of the most inspiring words from this book:
“Life consisted of more than top grades in school or career in law. Happiness meant opening herself up to be with others, being loving and accepting the love of others.”
