What We Find
What We Find by Robin Carr is the story of two people who are lost within their lives and need a fresh start in order to find themselves. Maggie Sullivan is a neurosurgeon who has reached an impasse in her life and career. She decides to visit her dad at Sullivan’s Crossing. California, “Cal”, Jones is a widowed lawyer, trying to pick up the pieces of his life and move forward after the death of his wife. He returned to his gypsy ways of childhood, traveling the country, only to spend some time at Sullivan’s Crossing.
Sullivan’s Crossing is at the crossroads of the Colorado and the Continental Divide Trails. It is here that Maggie’s dad, Sully, runs a general store that had been passed down through the generations. It is here where Maggie and Cal each find a friend to talk to, share a bonfire with, as well as relax with. It is also here where the two begin to fall for each other and figure out their lives intent.
Once again Robyn Carr has written a winner. I loved the way Robyn Carr took the reader along Maggie and Cal’s journey to find themselves. Along that path the two needed to determine how to use their talents to fulfill their lives yet not lose their relationship. She showed the growth in the relationship between these two characters as well as how their love for each other continued to grow. I highly recommend this book to all readers as I struggled to put this book down.
Another home run for Robyn Carr
Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Robyn does a wonderful job of exploring the diverse and challenging lives of Maggie and Cal, and their friends and family. She has also made me long to visit the small towns of Colorado. I see a summer trip in my future.
I wanted to just love this novel but I couldn't. It was a little boring to me and took me longer than normal to finish due to lack of interest.
