''Love can be uniquely beautiful in its most raw, honest, and emotional way.'' Jenn embarks on an unforgettable journey as she fights to find and reignite the vibrant and free-spirited person she once was. She discovers that divorce doesn't mean the end as she reunites with her first love, who helps her to find the love and passion that lay dormant inside of her in author Kirsten Pursell's Long Enough to Love You.
This book is a romantic, appealing read where the character stays true to herself and is steadfast with what she wants despite middle-aged patterns and societal norms. It's liberating once you've discovered who you are, and the author humanizes Jenn in this way. The reader can follow the ebbs and flows of life, and feel the pain, the excitement, and the reigniting of self within this character, which makes her relatable.
Revisiting one's past isn't damaging in this case. This book is buoyant and relevant to those who may question their lives after divorce, having kids, or what life may look like for them after so much time has passed. The author emphasizes self-love, self-identity, and the place of a woman's vulnerability in this spellbinding book. Long Enough to Love You is in turn, chaotic and cathartic and Pursell celebrates Jenn's willingness to be vulnerable, at times uncertain and exhilarating. A poignant story written beautifully that takes a closer look into Jenn's past, present, and possible future. It is authentic and unexaggerated, a gripping romance with clear prose and complex characters.
