Title: Shelter Me
Author: Juliette Fay
Published: January 2009
Summary: Janie is depressed. Her husband recently died, leaving her with her grief and two young children. Every day is a struggle for her, but that is made slightly easier by the support of her family. This is the story of Janie trying to pull her life together.
Why I Am Recommending: I read this book a while ago and have also reread it, which is a very unusual thing for me to do. I really connected with Janie and found her character and her predicament to be very realistic. I like that Fay showed her grappling with the grief and the daily struggles in a way I would imagine to be fairly believable. I think the character development in this book is great and I grew to love all of the characters. I am not sure everyone I recommend this to would give it 5 stars like I did (I just totally synced with Janie), but I do find that it is mostly well-liked.
