Megan’s Way by Melissa Foster

When Megan receives the bad news that her cancer has returned, and is more aggressive and advanced than before, she struggles with what to do. Her daughter Olivia is devastated, not sure how to react. Together they must find a way to come to peace with each other, the current situation, and their complicated past.

This was a very emotional, character driven story all about living in the moment. It reminded me of a Nicholas Sparks book (or movie). As a movie, it would be classified as a tear jerker.

Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of those types of movies. As such, I didn’t really enjoy the story. I can see the appeal it would have for lots of readers, but it just wasn’t for me. This was very much a story about characters and their emotions. I found the plot moved extremely slowly, and I just couldn’t connect with the characters enough to care what happened to them.

Rating: 2/5
