A Year by the Sea: Thoughts of an Unfinished Woman
Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod. At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take plea-sure in her surroundings and call on resources she didn't realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an 'unfinished woman' was full of possibilities. Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers.

Review: A Year by the SeaUser Review - Afnan Aldimasi - Goodreads
This is a good book. I love stories of people finding theirselves and becoming more independent, especially females. I also find it interesting to read the thoughts of a person who is recollecting their thoughts and aiming for a clearer mind. Read full review

I found this to be an easy book to dip into before bed, sort of like reading a letter from a pen pal. Read full review
