***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Melissa Shuler is an expert at running away. Unfortunately, doing so always lands her in more trouble than she was trying to escape. This time, she’s running back to her hometown. Her family needs her, and she needs them—more than she’s ready to admit. She doesn’t need a new romance, and certainly not two. Melissa never dreamed that finding home would take her on a journey like this.
Parting Burden is a stroll through the lives of several twenty-somethings, told from the perspective of the main character, Melissa Shuler.
Melissa, Catherine, Angela, Seth, Travis, James, and Shane: each is searching for their path in life, love and friendship. As in life, drama and comedy walk hand-in-hand, soul-searching and self-analysis are evil necessities, and moving forward sometimes means leaving something, or someone, behind.
This book is set in a small town where everyone know everyone else. You will embark on meeting two handsome brothers vying for Melissa’s attention, Melissa’s dad and brother who she has not been close to since her mothers death, her Nana, her best friend who is a witch and many other colorful people. It is a setting that makes you feel like you are there right alongside the characters laughing, crying, soul searching and learning about love. Ms. Macdughlas does a great job of describing the setting and characters. It pulls you right into the book.
There are some bad moments thrown in there but it just ends up proving that when a community pulls together they can support each other and get through the bad times. It is a true romantic read that makes you respect friendship, family and finding love. It is the type of book that when you are finished you truly miss the characters and the story.
