I am an avid reader.  I read about a book a week, and really enjoy all genres of literature. But sometimes, what you need is a really fun book to curl up on the couch with on a rainy day. And “Lunch in the Park” is the perfect book for that. I read it over a recent rainy weekend when I had nothing to do, and my son and husband were preoccupied building some million-piece Lego set.

“Lunch in the Park” is about a woman who is raising her young niece, and the man she recently started dating. You think it is going to be a very straightforward, light read, and it is that, but it is also more. It raises questions about family and choices, and the sacrifices you make for your family. It also hearkens back to that time in life when you had your whole life in front of you, and had really difficult choices to make. It is about love and family and the intersection of the two.

The book is very well written and is also a fun, quick, read. It would be a perfect beach, vacation, or day at the park read.  I highly recommend it.
