B.O.T.W. - Escape/Evadarea - Barbara Delisky

Well, today was not a good day for me...trouble at work, stupid things happening to me...but it was the 13th of the month. And being late with the post is just the cherry on top! 
Let me tell about how much I loved this book!
I see myself in Emily and sometimes I would like to escape the way she did...

Pai, astazi nu a fost o zi prea buna pentru mine...probleme la servici, mi s-a intamplat numai tampenii...dar pana la urma, azi a fost 13. Si faptul ca postez atat de tarziu e doar cireasa de pe tort!
Dar dati-mi voie sa va spun cat de mult mi-a placut aceasta carte!
Oarecum ma identific cu Emily si mi-as dori sa pot evada si eu uneori....



So, Emily is the wife of a lawyer,is a lawyer herself and all she wants is to escape the technology. So, one day, instead of going to the office, she leaves her phone, her watch, her laptop and credit cards; takes only some cash, clothes and the car and goes away. A few days before she left New York, she got a letter from Jude saying that he'll go home from his long journey in a few weeks, but she thinks that they won't meet in Bell Valley. Every road tends to take her to Bell Valley, the small town where ten years ago she had a love story with Jude, the brother of her best friend, Vicki. She told no one where she's going, but her husband found out and came for her. He tried to take her home, but failed. The trust he had in her is very rare nowadays and whoever has it, I hope they know they are blessed. One of Vicki's employees, Lee, has some problems with the family of her deceased husband. They accuse her for stealing his money, when in fact, they are stealing from her. This is when Emily and her husband, James, start working together to solve Lee's case. From the moment that James found out where Em was, he came along on week-ends or whenever he could. Those encounters were so full of love and desire, that they fell in love with each other again. They tried for a baby for a long time, but the busy and hectic city life stood in front of their happiness. The times they were together in Bell Valley, the miracle happened: Emily got pregnant. The whole story, the book is about Emily, the woman that has to choose between her career and the thought of a future family. Fortunately, she chose the family and James supports her decision. Jude is the same guy, nothing changes about him, even though he has a nine year old son with the woman that he cheated on Em ten years ago. 

Emily este sotie de avocat, este si ea avocat si tot ce isi doreste in acest moment este sa scape de tehnologie. Asa ca, intr-o zi, in loc sa mearga la birou, isi lasa acasa laptopul, telefonul, ceasul de mana si cardurile, isi ia cativa bani cash la ea, haine si masina si pleaca. Cu cateva zile inainte sa plece din New York, ea primeste o scrisoare de la Jude ii care i se spune ca acesta se va intoarce acasa peste cateva saptamani, dar se gandeste ca nu se vor intalni. Toate drumurile par sa o duca in Bell Valley, oraselul unde in urma cu zece ani a trait o poveste de dragoste cu Jude, fratele celei mai bune prietene a ei, Vicki. Nu a spus nimanui unde merge, dar sotul ei o gaseste si vine dupa ea. Incearca sa o aduca inapoi acasa, dar nu reuseste. Increderea pe care o are James in ea este foarte rara in zilele noastre, asa ca daca o aveti, nu va bateti joc de ea. Una din angajatele lui Vicki, Lee, are probleme cu familia raposatului sau sot. Acesti o acuza ca ar fi furat bani din fondul fiduciar al familiei, dar de fapt ei sunt vinovati. Acesta e momentul in care cei doi soti incep sa lucreze impreuna pentru a o ajuta pe Lee. De cand a aflat unde e sotia lui, James a venit sa o viziteze de cate ori a putut. aceste vizite erau foarte pasionale, lucru ce a facut ca Emily sa ramana insarcinata. Au incercat de atat de multe ori si nu au reusit, dar se pare ca linistea si lipsa stresului i-a ajutat. Toata povestea, toata cartea este despre Emily, femeia care a trebuit sa aleaga intre cariera si o viitoare familie. Din fericire, familia a castigat. Jude a ramas acelasi rebel, chiar daca femeia cu care a inselat-o pe Em i-a daruit un baiat - baiat care are acum noua ani.

I enjoyed the book like no other book I've read lately! 
If you will read it, please tell me what you think about it, I'm very curious.
Let's see now what my friends read this past week.

Mi-a placut cartea atat de mult!
Daca o veti citi, ca rog sa-mi spuneti ce parere aveti despre ea, sunt foarte curioasa.
Acum sa vedem ce au scrie fetele saptamana asta.
