The Love of Her Life by Harriet Evans

The Love of Her Life

In London, Kate Miller had an enviable life: an exciting job at a fashion magazine, an engagement and a wedding to plan. Then it all fell apart -- spectacularly, painfully, and forever. That was three years ago...and she fled to New York City to live with her mother and stepfather. 

Now Kate is a true New Yorker, in love with the pace and rhythm of Manhattan. But deep down, she knows her life is in a holding pattern, that there is something -- someone -- more to love. But when her father becomes ill, Kate realizes it's time to return and face the friends and the memories she left behind. What really happened before Kate left London? Can she pick up the pieces and allow herself to love life again?

I found this book in a charity shop (thrift store) and I am really glad that I did.  I thought this was going to be another chick lit easy to read summer story but it really is so much more than that.  Following Kate through her journey, I was just routing for Kate's happiness and for her to come to terms with what she has to deal with....
