Title: Six Months

Author: Mona Sedrak

Genre: Contemporary Fiction/Women’s Fiction

Book Blurb:

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.


“Think about how a butterfly develops, Jake. It starts as an egg, grows into a larva, and then a caterpillar. In a span of a month, a tiny egg becomes a glorious butterfly. The transition is massive. The butterfly looks nothing like the egg it started as. It changed, grew, and survived. Then the butterfly unfurls into something spectacular.”

Jake brought her hand to his lips. “Just like you, baby,” he said in a husky voice. “You’re spectacular. You survived, changed, and grew. You brought me along with you. You’re a monarch, my love. God, how I love you. I’m humbled by your resilience, strength, and beauty.”

Mikala slid her hands up Jake’s chest and wound them around his neck as his arms wrapped around her. “Can this beautiful life be real? Is this really my life, now?” Her eyes were wide. “I never thought I could be this happy and this hopeful ever again. People said time heals, but I thought they were crazy. I didn’t think I would ever find peace and true joy again.”

“Look around, Micky.” Jake scanned the vicinity. “This is as real and as miraculous as life gets. Every day we wake up is a gift. How we choose to handle the minutes, hours, days, months, and years we are given is up to us. Every day I’m grateful I have you in my life. I love you, sweetheart.”

“Every second counts, Jake. Let’s never forget that. Every second, every heartbeat, and with every breath, I will love you my Super-man.”

What’s your favorite thing about the Fall season:

Of all four seasons, fall has always been my favorite. While I love the beach season, I don’t particularly like hot and humid weather unless I’m actually sitting on a beach. Winter is nice for a while, especially if I can snuggle up with a good book in front of a blazing fire with a cup of hot chocolate. After a while, however, I’m tired of the snow and cold weather. In Ohio, where I reside, spring is so brief that I don’t even have time to enjoy it before the hot and humid weather hits.

What inspired you to write this story:

This story is very dear to my heart and in many ways was very easy to write. It is a story of love and loss as well as forgiveness, hope, and joy. The human spirit is resilient, and women are strong creatures. We love deeply and with our whole heart and thus, when we lose those we love, we hurt. We may stumble and we may fall, but we eventually rise. Although readers will need a box of tissues when they begin the story, I promise they will also laugh, and find great joy and hope as they end the book.
