The Underside of Joy written by Sere Prince Halverson
No one can love her children like she does, can they?
With a wonderful husband, two animated kids and an extended family who regard her as one of their own, Ella counts as her blessings. Yet when her soul mate Joe tragically drowns, her life is turned upside down without warning, and she finds that the luck, which she had thought would last forever, has run out. When Joe’s beautiful ex-wife, who three years earlier deserted their children, arrives at the funeral – Ella fears the worst. She is right to.
Ella discovers she must struggle with her own grief, whilst battling to remain with the children and the life which she loves. Questioning her own role as a mother, and trying to do what is right, all she is sure of is that she needs her family to make it through each day. Yet when pushed to the limits of love, Ella must decide whether she is, after all, the best mother for her children?
Wow .. what a story! This was a book I just couldn’t put down. You are gripped and pulled in straight away as the tragedy unfolds and then every page is packed full of struggles, family secrets, despair, with the odd glimpse of hope but all wrapped up in that word Love.
Written so beautifully with characters you will love and long for happiness to come to their door. Gorgeous children and with family relationships that will melt your heart. I believe that this is a debut novel for the Author who has signed with Harper publishers and if this is a Debut novel I am even more impressed, I will certainly be looking out for other books by the Author as they become available. I really do recommend this book to my followers.
