Dear Life follows the lives of four characters whose lives turned in a direction they never expected. Daisy is the sheltered one, while Carter wears a chip on his shoulder. Jace makes a choice which is one of the hardest decisions he must wrestle with, and Hallyn has her fairytale ripped from beneath her. Megan Quinn brilliantly tells this tale of fate, love, sacrifice, and rebirth with a conviction that moves the soul. She leaves her audience thinking about how many are given a new lease on life and how many are left behind. Quinn brought tears and empathy as well as happiness and joy to these flawed survivors.
Quinn takes the plunge into writing this novel through several lenses. First, a four character POV. Then she weaves in letters and texts to enrich the depth of the sobering themes. Overall, Quinn explores the ups and downs and creates a beautiful tribute for this thing we call life. I waited to read this one as I knew the emotional rollercoaster of the words Quinn penned between the covers. This will definitely be a re-read as it moved me in ways I never expected!

It’s New Years Eve and time for a resolution. Time for decision and self-discovery. After all, isn’t that what starting over, in a new year, is all about? Forgiveness. Clean slates? Finding beauty in heartbreak and pain, and finding yourself along the way?
We hope so.
Because we’ve immersed in the anonymously published Dear Life program, designed to help us step outside of our comfort zones and start anew. Forced to face obstacles and relinquish our demons we’ll come together–or fall apart– to prove our existence:
Hollyn: The perpetually hurt
Daisy: The sheltered and naïve
Jace: The athlete with a heart of gold
Carter: The bitter and pained dreamer
Win big or lose it all, we’re at a crossroads in our lives; four strangers meeting in the middle. Do we have what it takes to use this one chance and start over? Or will we fall apart
