On My Shelf: The Waiting Room

Veronica is trying to put her life back together after suffering loss. She is trying to be human again after having her world ripped apart. Part of that is seeing a therapist and forging relationships with the people she encounters along the way. But nothing is ever what it seems.

I loved this book. This is my 4th book read by this author and I devoured this one like the others. Emily Bleeker has a way of writing stories that captivate you. They are so real I get lost in the story every time. The characters and their emotions are real. This one spoke to me on multiple levels. Having loss someone I loved dearly in a tragic way as well, the grieving and pain felt by Veronica, I know that pain. Then the forgiveness and trying to let go of some of that anger, I know that too.

This book spoke to me as a woman, a mom, a human being. It reminded me we are all struggling and connected and sometimes we have to break so we can build ourselves up to be who we need to be to continue this journey. Warning the last 20% of this book had me in tears. And the ending had me cheering for the human spirit.

*I received this book for free through Netgalley from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
