Jane lives a pretty good life. She works at a floral shop, though she and her boss don’t always get along, she has a very supportive family and great friends that are always around to lend an ear. Suddenly noticing that many people around her are either getting married or having children, she’s suddenly feeling a bit worried that she’s falling behind. She’s realizing that there just might be something missing in her average world but will she finally convince herself that, after watching everyone else’s lives change, it might be time for her to get out of her comfort zone?
This whole book is very conversational and I actually rather enjoyed how it was written. I feel like my reading experience with this book was unique compared to others. I can actually picture this storyline going on as though it were on stage in form of a play. I can imagine the main stage having a table in the center and the only things they would change in between scenes would be the walls and decorations, since most of the book takes place at a table where Jane would talk amongst family and friends. There were so many delicious-sounding meals in this book as they had discussed their lives over food and it made me so hungry every time! Jane is an observer in this book and I like how it’s her turn to really try and figure out what she wants in life. I feel like a lot of people can relate to her character as we all go through our own version of self-discovery. Towards the end, I found myself having mixed feelings. I feel like there wasn’t much of a resolve yet I like how it seemed more realistic.
It was overall a very unique read and if you read it, I highly recommend not reading before you go out for lunch or dinner because you will want to buy everything on the menu!
I’m giving this book a rating of 3.5 feathers!
