**** Four Star Review ****
Finding love in the middle of grief.
This book is about loss and love. It's about finding your way back through grief. It's about a new life coming from the most unlikely of places.
Devney Perry does a wonderful job and combining grief and finding love simultaneously. The path of finding yourself and starting a new life when it seems like it will always be stuck.
This is such a unique story about a woman who lost her husband and years later still holding onto that loss. Then finding a person who is connected to her grief in an unusual way, who will be the one to hopefully help her move on.
The Birthday List is full of kismet moments. Everything happens for a reason. People come into you life in the moment you need them most. These moments of kismet materialize in a few different ways. These twists and "coincidences" are what make this story.
I really enjoyed this book. It was such a unique idea for a plot. I am really glad I got the opportunity to read it. It's definitely one I would recommend.
