I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
A woman shares the journey her life takes a decade after the loss of her husband and the mission she undertakes to “redefine the impossible” in author Barbara Barth’s memoir, The Unfaithful Widow Ten Years Later.
Picking up where The Unfaithful Widow ended, Ten Years Later continues the author’s journey from widow to a slightly askew woman. A memoir written with warmth and candor on being single again, aging, and finding a creative path surrounded by dogs, friends, laughter, and a bit of craziness. Barbara Barth shares stories on the adventures that followed her first year alone as she moved headfirst into a new life, listening to her heart, sometimes not so wisely, but always full speed ahead. Join her on the ride of her life, from owning an antique shop to moving to a Victorian cottage outside of Atlanta, and all the follies in between. Going into the next decade with six dogs by her side, the author proves you are only as old as you feel, and happiness begins with a grateful heart. A funny and engaging memoir for anyone who wants to be their own superhero facing life’s good and bad moments.
A truly well written, honest and fascinating read, author Barbara Barth has created a fantastic novel that openly and honestly explores life after losing a spouse or loved one, while also exploring the journey to redefine or find your true self in this world.
While I haven’t read the first book that this novel is a sequel of, the authors straight forward, truthful and eye-catching way of writing will instantly draw readers in, and the following chapters will keep readers engaged as the author explores a year of her life in each chapter for the last decade.
From her purchase of an antique store to moving into a Victorian home in a historic small town outside Atlanta and the journey she took along the way, the author has created a wonderful work of art that many readers, especially those who are older and feel the pressure put on them by society to become “old”, will find inspirational as the author proves age is just a number, and there is no age limit on following your dreams, pursuing your goals or finding life after loss.
A thrilling and truly honest memoir that cannot be missed, author Barbara Barth has done an excellent job of creating a narrative readers will not be able to put down once they get started. A fairly evenly paced read that keeps the reader invested throughout, the author showcases a wonderful talent for bridging the emotional aspect of loss and life, and the thrill of adventure that comes with exploring what life has in store for us. It’s a must read novel and a top memoir of 2019, so if you haven’t yet be sure to grab your copy of “The Unfaithful Widow Ten Years Later” by Barbara Barth today!
