old book 2000

But their perfect happy family, scattered during the tragedy of Christmas morning, when Jack went to office to collect his paperwork, was shot by his client’s husband. Liz and the children continue their life with sorrow and emptiness; she had to work overtime to keep moving their law practice on her own, while in the same time help her children recover from their father’s death.  However, even time passing by, she still feel empty and often miss her husband until she met Dr Bill the workaholic and serious guy, that save Peter’slife.

Danielle Stelle (best selling author)
In my opinion, the storyline was a moderate one, nothing urge my nerves to read more passion as I can expect the end of the story, seem s like other Malay novel which full of relationship between family member and lover but what make me stay still to read more as the story told with the simple language, simple style, not complicated and success in making me feel the misery life of Liz.

 As I read the story, I remember the time when my mothers want to get married after 4 years become a single mother for 6 children also underage same like Liz. (My parents divorced, after my father get married once again,  when I still in 14 years old, other siblings 15,13,12,7 and 5 years old). I agreed without thinking while one of my sister and one of my brothers hesitated and never happy. My mother deserve more even to had a partner in her life as I remember the time when she raise us by her own, start selling nasi lemak, open small business  sewing clothes and so much time she never fail give us what should we have on our own age. She was the superb one, had a power of woman even men, full of humour and determination.  I never regret my parents separated as now look what they had in the ending of the failed first marriage. They get what they wanted, happiness with their own partner, and Praises to Allah for the best fate that He created for us. Full of mystery!

"Allah menguji keikhlasan hati bila kita bersendirian,
memberi erti kedewasaan bila kita ditimpa masalah,
melatih kita dengan kesabaran dalam kesakitan,
tak pernah ambil sesuatu yang kita sayang,
gantikannya dengan yang lebih baik,," 
salam ceria!!
