I loved this part from Anne-Marie’s recent review of Training Season:

Matty is talented and has the aspiration (and outside expectation) to win gold at the Olympics but his journey is an arduous one, full of sacrifice and failure, to the point that I’ve come to think of this story as the anti-fairytale. Don’t get me wrong there is a satisfying HEA, but the road to get there is not what you might expect. As I reader I don’t need to be treated with kid gloves, shake me up a little please. I loved the risks the author took – there are few safe choices – and the questions she raised:
* What is the value and meaning of failure and success?
* What sacrifices are you willing to make to find true happiness?
* Do you dare to disappoint others to be true to yourself?
Just to name a few, and yes these are the big questions and challenges in life. Do you have what it takes to meet these head on?

Thanks, Anne-Marie, for the lovely review and for going along for the ride!

    1. I totally owe you some emails. I can’t wait for all this Christmas Break stuff to be over so I have some actual life back. I can’t seem to get any time for writing, email, or anything else. The two days I was at work this week had a) one day of catch-up at work, and b) one day of having to go home because my MIL called saying my daughter was sick. (She wasn’t actually, but that’s a long story, and so I missed work for nothing.) I do most of my emailing from the office because at home I’m constantly interrupted. (For example, I was interrupted SIX times while typing this. Gah. I adore my kid, but being her sole outlet for days on end is exhausting.)
