The Best is Yet to Come; Tara R. Alemany

I am not one to read non-fiction, inspirational stories.  That having been said, I couldn’t be more grateful that Tara R. Alemany reached out to me to offer a copy of her book, “The Best is Yet to Come.”

Alemany ‘s story is about a relationship that she forged with a man when she had given up on dating all together, something that I can relate to, and how she manages to struggle through the pain and isolation she felt upon his death. 

I wondered, before beginning to read this book, if Alemany’s Christian based back ground would put me off. I can assure you that it did not.  Rather, even though I approach my beliefs from a different direction, I found comfort in Ms. Alemany’s ability to turn to her God and her faith to find peace in an otherwise bleak situation.  And I found comfort in the fact that simple prayer paved the pathway to clear obstacles that blocked her from making bold choices that lead her on a path to comfort for both herself and for others effected by the death of someone that she loved.  Two lessons I can take from the book and apply to my own, personal situation.

I would not, for the barest of moments, hesitate to recommend this book for anyone who has become complacent with their current lot in life.  You never know where love will find you.  Nor would I hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one as Ms. Alemany’s journey expresses, very poignantly, how we accept loss and survive the pain of our grief. 

Without compunction, I give this book a very strong four and a half to five stars and I wish Ms. Alemany all the best on her journey.
