A Table by the Window- A Review

tablebywindow Being torn between what others expect you do and what you feel is best for your life is the subject of this book. Juliette has been raised in culinary family of chefs and she uses that background to her advantage for a food column she writes for the local newspaper. Of course there’s a little mystery in the book that I found rather intriguing. Upon inheriting a piece of furniture, she finds a photograph of a man who strongly resembles her brother Nicco.
The message in the book is that you don’t have to follow the dreams that others have presented to you. Her grandmother didn’t, she became a pastry chef back when it wasn’t a great idea. Juliette is torn between wanting to stay at the newspaper and opening a restaurant with her brother Nicco and his friend Adrian. She does much soul searching on the issue with the help of newly found friend, Neil, a man she meets in an online dating site.
Neil is the calm among the stormy issues that Juliette faces. He is patient, doesn’t pass judgment and allows Juliette to make the decision that will make her happiest. In the end, Juliette ditches the newspaper job and decides to ponder working in what has always been a way of life for her.
I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for reviewing it.
