Thank you for stopping by I'm delighted to be sharing my review of The Start of Something Wonderful by Jane Lambert. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Previously published as Learning to Fly
It’s never too late to follow your dreams…
Forty-year-old air stewardess, Emily Forsyth, thought she had everything a woman could wish for: a glamorous, jet-set lifestyle, a designer wardrobe and a dishy pilot boyfriend. Until he breaks up with her…
Catapulted into a mid-life crisis she wishes she’d had earlier, she decides to turn her life upside-down, quitting her job and instead beginning to chase her long-held dreams of becoming an actress!
Leaving the skies behind her, Emily heads for the bright lights of London’s West End – but is it too late to reach for the stars?
Don’t miss this heartwarming and uplifting debut, perfect for fans of Colleen Coleman and Cate Woods!
This story is all about second chances, taking a leap of faith and following your dreams which I loved. Emily has her dreams but they have always taken a back seat so when her future plans fall apart she decides to make new ones and take a big step into the unknown world of acting. Here follows some ups and downs that make one fantastic adventure for Emily and for the reader to experience with her. Will everything turn out okay in the end though?
Emily was so brave to start afresh I'm sure that we all have dreams whether they be big or little that we may have put to one side or even forgotten all about. This story shows you that it should never be too late to try and achieve your dreams. The Start of Something Wonderful moves at a good pace showing some of the highs and lows of Emily's new life it felt realistic and Jane Lambert shows the reader the joy that can come from achieving even just the minor things in life. With some lovely supporting characters from old friends to new friends who all help to encourage Emily and provide some lighter moments too.
The Start of Something Wonderful is a witty and hopeful story with some lovely fun and light hearted moments throughout!
Four stars from me!
