Spring means lots of exciting book club features. Our next selection’s author is no stranger to From Left to Write. We’re thrilled to announce that The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson as our next book club!
Our members have been raving over Maddie’s newest book and you’ll soon see why when we discuss it next Tuesday, April 8. Here’s more about the novel:
Jonathan and Rosie have been together so long they finish each other’s sentences—so when he (finally) proposes and asks her to move across the country with him, everyone is happily surprised. But when things suddenly unravel, Rosie sends Jonathan packing and moves back home with Soapie, the irascible, opinionated grandmother who raised her. Now she has to figure out how to fire Soapie’s very unsuitable caregiver, a gardener named Tony who lets her drink martinis, smoke, and cheat at Scrabble.
It’s meant to be a temporary break, of course—until Rosie realizes she’s accidentally pregnant at 44, completely unequipped for motherhood, and worse, may be falling in love with Tony, whose life is even more muddled than hers. When Soapie reveals a long-hidden secret, Rosie wonders if she has to let go of her fears, and trust that the big-hearted, messy life that awaits her just may be the one she was meant to live.
You’ll fall in love with Rosie, just like our members did. Pre-order your copy The Opposite of Maybe so you can dig right in after our book club discussion next week.
