Beth Morrey Reviews: The Love Story of Missy Carmichael gradually immerses you into the world of Missy Carmichael, a 78-year-old woman leading a solitary life. Her son is far away with his family, her daughter is estranged, and her husband has passed away from illness. With no friends or social circle, Missy is on the brink of despair, but fate has other plans. Through encounters with a spirited single mother and a thriving lone woman, among others, Missy’s resistance is gradually overcome, and she finds herself embraced by a new makeshift family. It’s a tale of love, redemption, and second chances, with unexpected twists and a heartbreaking event that threatens to unravel everything. The characters are relatable, and I found myself reluctant to part with them as the story concluded. -Anonymous
