And Then I Found You: A Novel by Patti Callahan Henry

Kate Vaughan is no stranger to tough choices.

She’s made them before. Now it’s time to do it again.

Kate has a secret, something tucked away in her past. And she’s getting on with her life.  Her business is thriving. She has a strong relationship with her family, and a devoted boyfriend whom she wants to love with all her heart. If Kate had ever made a list, Rowan would fill the imagined boxes of a perfect mate. But she wants more than the perfect on paper relationship; she wants a real and imperfect love. That's why, when Kate discovers the small velvet box hidden in Rowan's drawer, she panics.

It always happens this way. Just when Kate thinks she can love, just when she believes she can conquer the fear, she’s filled with dread. And she wants more than anything to make this feeling go away. But how?

When the mistakes have been made and the running is over, it’s time to face the truth. Kate knows this. She understands that a woman can never undo what can never be undone. Yet, for the first time in her life she also knows that she won’t fully love until she confronts those from her past. It’s time to act.

Can she do it? Can she travel to the place where it all began, to the one who shares her secret? Can the lost ever become found?

Overall I thought this book was a really good read. It took me 2 weeks to read it, but that was only because I had to put it down and get homework done as well. Once I started reading the story I couldn't put it down that is until I forced myself to. I love how this story is almost like a real life event; I thought it was wonderful that such a wonderful story could come out of something so sad and the fact that the author’s sister went through something like this must have made writing this book a little bit more personal.  I cried through most of the book.

 While reading this book I experienced many emotions; sadness, happiness, disbelief. As I was reading “And Then I Found You” I felt like I was the one going through what the woman in the story did. I started to question whether there would ever be any happiness in this book and I was rewarded at the end of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story, especially if someone wants to read about happyily ever after, then this would be a good book for you. You may have to endure other emotions throughout the book but I promise you will get to read about a happy ending.  Happy reading!!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
