Someplace Warm: A Novel about the Kindness of Fate (English Edition) Kindle Ausgabe
Meg is sixty and believes her useful life is over, Sully is thirty and drifts from one lover’s bed to the next, and they are both running away when she pulls him out of a freezing river in the dark of night. As they take turns driving south together through hundreds of miles of new territory, their old lives fall away and their hopes for a bright future are born. Where will they end up? Who will they be when they get there? Will they become lifelong friends or simply fellow travelers thrown together a few days by fate?

uplifting and entertainingKundenrezension aus Großbritannien 🇬🇧 am 12. Januar 2014
An enjoyable tale about two very different people who form an unlikely bond, and how they go about starting their lives over again from scratch. The characters are believable and likeable enough that you care about what happens to them. A great story especially for anyone who has ever thought about what might happen if they just walk away from their life.

Someplace WarmKundenrezension aus den USA 🇺🇸 am 21. Oktober 2014
It took me more than a week to finish this book, which is very unusual for me. I kept putting it down and going back to pick it up again. I thought about deleting it entirely and not finishing it, because I thought it was just too morbid to read. I'm glad I kept at it. After a while, the book started to get much better. Meg was going to commit suicide. She had always enjoyed her life by taking care of other people. When she was a child, she took care of her family, making sure everyone was happy. When she grew up, she transferred all this caring to her children and her husband. Her children were now grown and her husband had left her for another woman. She thought she now had no reason to live because no one needed her. She had made elaborate plans for taking her own life. She disposed of everything in her house, wrote her suicide letter and was going to jump off a bridge on her 60th birthday. When she was on the bridge getting ready to jump, a truck came across the bridge, hit a deer and went into the water. Instinctively, she ran to pull Sully, the driver, out of the river. She saved his life, just as he, in turn, saved hers that night. The rest of the book is how they both were able to find themselves as they learned to enjoy life after having come so close to death. Although I totally disagreed with Meg's praying to a statue, the rest of her transformation was interesting. It is a story of how two people were able to turn their lives around and enjoy living after having very unhappy pasts.

Finding Someplace WarmKundenrezension aus den USA 🇺🇸 am 27. Januar 2013
I enjoyed this book so much, felt I knew the characters and was a tiny bit sorry when I finished it because I was enjoying the life journey of each of the two main characters so much. Both Meg and Sully had unhappy pasts and ended up meeting at a crucial time in their lives. They traveled together, learning and growing in more positive ways. Eventually they parted ways but continued to heal their past history and create happier lives for themselves. They proved that no matter what your past was, you can create something better once you learn you can make better choices. I've done that with my life so I related to them as I recognized my own journey to a better place, someplace warm populated with people who love/like me just as I am. I'll be eagerly awaiting the next book by Annie Katz.
