I just finished another book called “An Absence So Great” by Jane Kirkpatrick. The book follows the life of a young female photographer, Jessie Gaebele. She is trying to make her way as an independent professional in a time when popular culture believed a woman’s place was at home with her husband and children. Jessie, also, struggles with a forbidden love as she has fallen in love with a married man. As Jessie tries to build her career, she finds her path keeps crossing his.
I really enjoyed the book. The characters were very real and it followed not only the main character, Jessie, but also, the man she tried to avoid and his wife as they journey through a very difficult path. It was a real story and shows how easy it is to go down the wrong path if you are not cautious. It, also, follows Jessie as she struggles not only to make her dream a reality, but also as she realizes that sometimes things can get in the way of what’s important, even good things.
