I appreciated and enjoyed the thought-provoking novel ” Heaven Adjacent” by Catherine Ryan Hyde. The Genres for this novel are Fiction and Women’s Fiction. What would you do if a tragedy made you re-evaluate everything in your life? How would you handle a terrible tragedy?
Roseanna Chaldecott is a high-powered and successful attorney in Manhattan. Roseanna is wealthy and has the opportunity to live in a materialistic and extremely comfortable way. When Roseanna’s partner and best friend pass away unexpectedly, she takes off in her Maserati, unsure of where she is going or what she is going to do.
The author describes the colorful cast of characters as complex, complicated, quirky and unpredictable. This is a story of second chances, searching for what is important, finding meaning, love and forgiveness. It is also a story about finding where you belong, and where your home and heart is.
Roseanna, finds over seventy acres of land and is looking for serenity, peace and quiet. She purchases the land without really looking at everything. What Roseanna doesn’t realize is that she does have a story to tell. Also she seems to find a knack of finding some quirky people, and animals that already are living on the land. Roseanna thinks she wants a simple life. She has to climb a steep hill to use her cell- phone. In reality, she is hiding.
A newspaper reporter is fascinated by Roseanna’s story and writes about it in the newspaper. When it is published, her estranged son Lance comes to take her home. Her partner threatens if she doesn’t return to the law practice he will sue her for everything.
This is a heartwarming novel that I highly recommend to readers of Women’s Fiction. Of course, some of my favorite parts center around the animals in the story. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
The story is about Roseanna, a high-powered New York attorney, who rashly it seems, decides to give it all up after the sudden death of her law partner, Alice. She gets in her car and starts to drive and ends up in upstate New York, out of gas and in the middle of a fog bank, near a piece of property that is for sale.
The property presents her with squatters and a whole new and strange set of rules about how to live in the wilderness. We see how Roseanna copes, sometimes, with each new obstacle. We see her change and adapt in her own, unique ways.
This is a lovely, touching story of finding what really matters in life.
