As the holiday season is upon us and the hustle and bustle of life ramps up, I decided I wanted something light and heartwarming to read. I love a good literary challenge, but what I really needed was a book that would let me escape the chaos. Lorna Landvik's Welcome to the Great Mysterious is the perfect book to curl up with and relax.
Geneva Jordan is a middle-aged self-centered Broadway star who has just been dumped by her boyfriend and is fast approaching menopause. Just then Geneva's twin sister Anne asks Geneva to come stay and babysit her teenage son while Anne and her husband take a much-needed vacation. Geneva grudgingly agrees and heads to Minnesota to babysit her 13 year old nephew, Rich, who has Down Syndrome. Rich and Geneva forge a relationship and learn about life and love together. Together they find an old scrapbook from Anne and Geneva's childhood, titled The Great Mysterious. The Great Mysterious scrapbook contains questions and answers from Anne and Geneva's teen years and explores the great mysteries of life such as finding true love, facing your fears, and the bond of family.
