    I felt this book was quite the wild ride! It follows the life of Elizabeth Lightsey, the wife of a preacher who controls her life and makes every decision for her ...for 26 years. But then he suddenly dies - and although she’s devastated, she finally gets her life handed back to her and she’s free to make decisions for herself. The craziness that happens after this is absolutely amazing. (This story kind of has a housewives vibe to it as the whole community is constantly up each oth

    This book was exquisite and just what I needed! I've loved King's other books so was pretty sure I'd love this one as well and I did! Liz is the epitome of the obedient pastor's wife, holding weekly knitting circles in her home and raising her daughter (now grown and a nurse) to believe she was put on this earth to serve men and kowtow to them. But when husband Thomas suffers a fatal heart attack, Liz realizes she has no real voice of her own until good friend, Val introduces her to community

    A Borrowed Life is a completely moving and brilliant book from Kerry Anne King. Following the sudden loss of her husband, Liz embarks on a journey of rediscovering her life.

    It was frustrating, gripping, uplifting and funny all rolled into one and definitely a book I'll recommend to friends!

    ... I do, however, wish someone would push Abigail out of an open window...

    *I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    In A Borrowed Life, Kerry Anne King cleverly delves into a forty-nine year old woman’s unexpected coming of age. Newly widowed, after a twenty-six year marriage to a man who controlled her thoughts and actions, Elizabeth becomes Liz and takes complete charge of her life, exploring her world as never before. Making decisions that bring her happiness, often at the temporary expense of her inflexible adult daughter, Liz discovers life is not linear as she contends with unexpected roadblocks. King’s stor

    I think this is going to be my nephew favorite by KAK; previously it’s was Whisper Me This. This book has all sorts of feels. It made me laugh and had me teary eyed. I love the strong female heroine aspect and how the main character pulls from her own strength and begins making her own decisions based on her needs and wants vs anyone else’s. Great character development. I could read it all over again!
    Thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for the ARC

    This was one of those books that becomes so addictive that you can't simply put it down.
    It's a non stop heart pounding piece that revolves around Lance and Liz and their new found relationship after the sudden death of her husband Thomas.
    Could it be too soon to begin a new romance?
    Is she too old to start jumping back into the dating pool at forty nine; after all there's so many things to worry about with STD's and god forbid pregnancy because birth defects escalate with age.
    Geez! I hate to be

    Thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for this ARC. I’ll start off by saying I’ve never read anything from Kerry Anne King and I was pleasantly surprised. I couldn’t put this book down, while I’m not religious so my connect to that didn’t mean anything I found myself connecting with Elizabeth (Liz). A woman who’d been with a man of god for over half of her left suddenly becomes a widow and is left to dig back into her past to find herself a again. The real Liz slowly emerges and she finds herself in a few unpred

    SPOILER-FREE REVIEW: I was very happy to read and review A Borrowed Life by Kerry Anne King, which will be published by Lake Union Publishing this fall. The gorgeous cover drew me in, but the topics are what really intrigued me.

    We meet our protagonist, Elizabeth Lightsey, as she quietly prepares for another routine day of being the pastor's wife. Married to an incredibly strict husband who sees every woman's role in life as being submissive and the helper for her husband, she hides her trashy romance novels and her journa

    Thank you to Lake Union Publishing and Netgalley for making it possible to read an advanced copy of A Borrowed Life!

    I was intrigued to read this by the very fun cover design and also because the story sort of reminded me of an updated version of the play and movie, Shirley Valentine, about a woman in her 40s who gets a second chance at rebuilding the life she's always dreamed about. While I think Shirley Valentine is the more daring take on this familiar coming of age later in life journey, I did find A
