Turtle Season by Miriam Ruth Black

Book: Turtle Season
Author: Miriam Ruth Black
Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: When Anna Simon becomes a widow, she loses everything she has identified herself with. To boot, menopause is really kicking her butt! A revelation of a shocking betrayal only intensifies her loss. Can Anna form a new identity for herself or will she revert back into a shell?
My rating: 3.5 Stars ( 4 stars on Amazon/Goodreads)
My opinion: I must admit that there was something about this book that I really found I liked. Was it kind of predictable? Yes. Was there a feeling that there are tons of books out there just like this one? Yes. However, I found myself really getting into Anna's story and cheering for her. I think one of the things that stood out to me was Anna's determination of recognizing her true self even during the most painful of times.  I felt like I could relate, so that is what brought me most into the story versus anything else in the story or the writing style of the author.
