Title: Six Months
Author: Mona Sedrak
Genre: Women’s Fiction
For twenty years, Mikala Jacobson had it all: loyal friends, a precious little girl, and a man who adores her. Then double tragedy strikes and her perfect world shatters.
Good friends, Rena and Jake are instantly by her side, protecting her from her husband David's sordid secret life and his final drunken confession.
With their help, Mikala finds strength to rebuild and redefine her life. As her spirit and heart heal, she not only finds closure, but the beauty of a new love built upon an old friendship.
Mikala’s world had been obliterated. No matter how hard she’d pushed, Jake refused to give up on her. Perhaps with him by her side, she would find the strength to redefine and rebuild her life.
For as long as Jake could remember, he’d loved her. How had he survived without her? Why had he taken this long to realize the depth of his love for Mikala? He’d compared every other woman who entered his life to her, and every one he’d found lacking.
What I love most about the holiday season:
While everyone else is running around preparing for the holidays, I have learned to slow down and remember daily the precious people in my life. The holidays can either drive you insane, and they have done so to me in the past, or you can make a concerted effort to slow done and count your blessings. My family and I decided several years ago a change was in store, and thus, during the holiday season we pause, spend time with one another in simplicity and joy and rest. The simplest meals, mixed with a glass of hot chocolate or wine, and a run of Christmas classics on TV make us happy. The fire warms us as we snuggle under blankets and occasionally even roast a marshmallow or two. We feel immensely blessed for the food on our table, the roof over our heads, the warmth radiating from the fireplace, and the love we share.
Why is your featured book a must-read to get you in the holiday mood?
Rone Award-nominated, Six Months, is a beautiful story of resilience, forgiveness, and love. While the story starts on a sad note that will tug at your heart strings, soon love starts to bloom and you will not be able to put this complex story down. Escape your world and enter that of Mikala and Jake’s and be blown away by their powerful story of loss, love, forgiveness, and rebirth. Finish your last-minute shopping then treat yourself and maybe a friend or two, to this powerful, life-changing book that will last with you way past all the presents have been opened and the holiday cookies devoured.
