Love, Carry My Bags Review

Synopsis from Amazon

Camryn Johnson’s world is turned upside down when long lost love, Reese Dahlgren, re-enters her life at a pivotal point in her already challenging marriage. She faces an excruciating predicament: choose between a broken home for her daughter or a broken life for herself.

After her parents' divorce, Camryn first meets high school basketball star, Reese, at the Harvard Milk Day Festival bed races. Reese hides baggage of his own…until Camryn melts his heart and learns secrets entrusted only to her. Still, the weight is too much to bear. Unable to cope, Reese unwittingly backs Camryn into a corner during his air force enlistment—love him from afar, or leave him.

Enter aerospace engineering student, Glenn Conroy. Persistent and savvy, he woos Camryn during her junior year of college and wins her heart. Or does he? When Reese re-enters her life, further disrupting her tenuous marriage, Camryn turns to best friend, Megan, for advice, but refuses to believe Megan’s suggestion that she’s caught in a “simple” love triangle.

Camryn unveils hidden mysteries and secrets as she embarks on a life-changing journey of revelation and forgiveness, transcending doormat qualities inherited from her mother, and in the process finds what life's struggles are really all about.

C.R. Everett's heart-wrenching debut novel takes the reader on an emotion-packed journey that lingers long after the last page is turned.

My Review

Love, Carry My Bags is a heartwarming and emotional story. I was going through a pretty hard time when I read this book, and this book touched so close to home and taught me so much. Following Camryn through her life’s ups and downs, I learned so much about myself.
This is a wonderful coming of age story. It was different than any other New Adult coming of age story that I have read. To me, the story was much deeper and more complex than your average run-of-the-mill coming of age story. It felt genuine. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought this was a non-fiction story 100%. I was able to connect to this story on many levels.
I laughed. I cried. I fell in love with the characters like they were part of my family. This is a story that touched my heart and will remain there for a very long time.
