#SRC2015 Book Review: It’s You by Jane Porter


Week of June 29: It’s You by Jane Porter
Dr. Alison McAdams has just suffered a tragedy that has rocked her life to the core. Lost, she returns home to Northern California to help her sick father; although, in her state, Ali does not know how much help she can provide anyone. Ali unexpectedly makes friends with her father’s community, hearing stories about life during WWII. Through these stories take Ali on a journey of lost love that will lead her across oceans and deep into the past. Through it all, Ali slowly begins to piece herself back together and rediscover that there is hope in life. 

After losing her fiancé, Andrew, just a few weeks before they were to be wed and her mother shortly after, Ali is lost. She is going through the daily motions of life, but is not truly living it. When her father is injured, she heads to visit him and there she meets her father's friend, Edie. 

Edie, a woman in her 90s initially does not like Ali, but as they find mutual ground, the two connect and form a friendship. Edie even trusts Ali with her secrets which leads Ali on a quest that helps her to find herself and to heal.

It's You by Jane Porter is about personal growth and discovery and is inspirational to women everywhere. Whether you are 27 or 87, this book appeals to every age and touches every heart. 

It's You is touching, gripping, and emotional. There is heartbreak, but also hope in the midst of despair. Jane Porter touches each reader and gives them inspiration and something to believe in after the grief has begun to fade.

I laughed, I cried, and I recommended this book to all my friends. I can't even begin to put into words how much I truly loved this book and the feelings it provoked in me. You would have to read for yourself and experience it on your own in order to get the full effect.
