I have said a million times on this blog that I feel lucky to have met so many amazing women through blogging. And somewhere along my blogging journey I stumbled upon Ivy League Insecurities, a blog written by author Aidan Donnelley Rowley, who just happened to publish her very first novel last month and it is doing amazingly well! I am not surprised though. As I wrote in this post she is clearly one of my favorite bloggers because she is one of the most talented writers I have come across in blogland. I hang on every word when I read her blog and I know that her novel Life After Yes is certainly no different.
I must be honest and tell you that I am nowhere near finished reading Life After Yes but what I can tell you is that from the very first page, I was hooked. Aidan’s writing style is seamless and effortless and her story is so engaging. She writes about themes that every woman can relate to on so many levels. She has a way of capturing the reader’s attention to make us want more…
Taken directly from the back of the book cover so you get a full synopsis of this plot, “Life After Yes is the story of Quinn—born Prudence Quinn O’Malley—a confused young Manhattan attorney who loses her father on that tragic September morning that changed everything. Now, at an existential crossroads in her life, Quinn must confront impossible questions about commitment and career, love and loss. Her idealistic beau desperately wants a wedding, and whisks her away to Paris just to propose. But then Quinn has a dream— featuring judges and handcuffs and Nietzsche and Britney…and far too many grooms. Suddenly, her future isn’t so clear. Quinn’s world has become a minefield of men—some living, some gone, and traversing it safely is going to take a lot more than numerous glasses of pinot grigio.”
