A Family Affair is the latest novel to come from Robyn Carr, and it is the perfect read for those looking for a bit of an escape. It’s a bit of romance and women’s fiction all rolled into one delightful package.
Anna has spent most of her adult life ensuring that her children have the things she never did. Stability, a whole family, and advantages she had only ever dreamed of for herself. Now that they’re grown up and moved out, Anna has some time to finally think about what she wants in life.
That is, right up until another surprise hits Anna. With no warning, Anna becomes a widow. Now she must navigate the trials of grief while once again providing support to her hurting children. Yet there is always support out there for those who need it most.
A Family Affair is one of those books you read to be moved. Not physically but emotionally. There’s so much happening within these pages that the odds are more than good that every reader will find something to connect with – I know I did.
Anna’s story is, well…a lot. But it is also very human and, as I said above, very relatable. Perhaps too relatable at times, as it does tug at the heartstrings on more than one occasion. I’m honestly struggling to find words here, as I feel like anything I have to say will pale in comparison.
So I’m just going to leave it at this: go and read A Family Affair; it will be worth your time. I promise.
Thanks to MIRA and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
