17 fiction books that feature fresh starts and new beginnings – Modern Mrs Darcy

I recommended this to Sarah Bessey in WSIRN episode 211. This much-anticipated follow-up to King’s award-winning 2014 novel Euphoria follows Casey Peabody, who is mourning the sudden death of her mother plus a messy break-up in 1997 Massachusetts. Lost without direction, 31-year-old Casey waits tables to make ends meet while she works on her novel in a tiny, dingy rented room. While her friends have given up on their artistic ambitions in favor of stability and the next phase of life, Casey still harbors creative dreams and firmly grasps her youth. When she finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, it becomes all the more difficult to balance her art with «real life,» and she just might reach her breaking point. This book was slow to hook me, but once I was in, I was IN. It also has one of the most satisfying endings I’ve read in ages. In fact, the «new beginnings» appear at the end of this book rather than being the catalyst for the story. I just finished a re-read (on audio this time, narrated by Stacey Glemboski) a few days ago, and loved it so much, again. More info →
