Rowan is a young girl that starts a new life on her own just in time for college. Everything seems to be falling into place for her, but the past always comes back to haunt you. A Life Forward is a tale of a young woman learning to be strong and independent while fighting her past demons. This is a great read, especially for lovers of books with a strong female lead. I would recommend to anyone.

A story based on a realistic problem with a good solid positive ending being as happily ever after as it could be. A quick read that leads us to have empathy and hope for Rowen, age eighteen, as she battle a past of cutting because of a mother and father that never seemed to love her. She has found love in her boyfriend's family that has taken her in this last year of high school and a wonderful guidance counselor who is very supportive. They promote love and forgiveness. She also has a friend, Jess, who is pregnant and they both become support for each other, even getting an apartment together. A story full of love, hope and compassion and some leaning on God.

A life, Forward by Tracy Hewitt Meyer Publication date - 5th November 2020 Thank you to @bhc.press @tracyhewittmeyer and @netgalley for my ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book, I didn’t realise it was part of a series until I logged it on goodreads. This shows how well the book was written, and that the back story was explained to the reader. I really like Rowen as a character. She was portrayed as a strong person considering the issues she had faced, but I did feel she was slightly annoying as she seemed weak when it came to how her boyfriend treated her. I feel that as an young adult book, it covered the topics well, they were well written, without skimming over, just because the audience may be younger. I look forward to reading the other books in the series . #netgalley #arc #bookreview #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookcommunity #alifeforward
