A Girl's Guide to Moving On

Review copy provided via NetGallery in exchange for an honest review


In this powerful and uplifting novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber, a mother and her daughter-in-law bravely leave their troubled marriages and face the challenge of starting over. Leaning on each other, Nichole and Leanne discover that their inner strength and capacity for love are greater than they ever imagined.

When Nichole discovers that her husband, Jake, has been unfaithful, the illusion of her perfect life is indelibly shattered. While juggling her young son, a new job, and volunteer work, Nichole meets Rocco, who is the opposite of Jake in nearly every way. Though blunt-spoken and rough around the edges, Rocco proves to be a dedicated father and thoughtful friend. But just as their relationship begins to blossom, Jake wagers everything on winning Nichole back—including their son Owen's happiness. Somehow, Nichole must find the courage to defy her fears and follow her heart, with far-reaching consequences for them all.

Leanne has quietly ignored her husband's cheating for decades, but is jolted into action by the echo of Nichole's all-too-familiar crisis. While volunteering as a teacher of English as a second language, Leanne meets Nikolai, a charming, talented baker from Ukraine. Resolved to avoid the heartache and complications of romantic entanglements, Leanne nonetheless finds it difficult to resist Nikolai's effusive overtures—until an unexpected tragedy tests the very fabric of her commitments.


You never go wrong when you pick up a book written by Miss Debbie, she has a way of connecting with her readers. Her characters feel like they are your next-door neighbor, and you’re watching their lives; you feel each and every emotion. You laugh, cry, and get mad all within a few pages. The development of the story line, as well as the characters is complete; you never feel as if something important is left out. The flow and pace of the story is perfect.

This was a story I could identify with as 24 years ago shortly after I got a divorce God put a wonderful man in my life when I wasn’t even looking to get into another relationship. I trusted God and I’ve been blessed everyday since.

You don’t run into any grammatical errors, so you know the writer and editors care about the product they are producing.
