With a lucrative freelance career and a loving family, Deborah Earle has a life many women would envy. But her daughter, Amanda, is heading to college soon, and Deborah worries about having an empty nest. She thinks another child might be the answer. Her husband, Richard, however, may not be willing to start over so late in life.
Amanda is excited about attending NYU next year, but she meets Graham, a handsome older boy, falls hard, and considers postponing her education to stay close to him. Her mother takes an instant dislike to Graham, but Amanda refuses to let her keep them apart.
As Deborah watches her daughter rush headlong toward heartache on an all-too-familiar path, the secrets lurking in Deborah’s past continue to echo in her present. When tragedy strikes, Deborah faces a future she could never have imagined.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
This is my first Densie Webb read, but it will not be my last! From start to finish, I was engrossed in this beautifully written, page turning novel. I fell in love with the characters, feeling like I was among friends and family. It was bittersweet for me, however, making me miss my own mother.
The relationship between Deborah & Amanda had so many emotional moments. I saw so much of my own mother in Deborah, and myself in Amanda. Richard and Graham’s characters were chiseled wonderfully. The interactions between these four characters was very life like and flawfilled, playing out more like a movie than just a novel.
If you love novels filled with family, secrets, hope, longing, and drama, then When Robins Appear is perfect for you. With each page turn you get something new to the story. Your emotions will be on a roller coaster ride and when you reach the end, Webb’s novel will leave you reflecting on your life, your dreams, your past and your future.
This is definitely a book I recommend to all! Don’t miss it, grab it up now. I can’t wait to go back and look for Webb’s previous novels, especially if they are filled with beautiful characters and real-to-life circumstances that jump off the pages.
