Synopsis from Goodreads:
Of course, it does...
Swept from her perfect paper-doll life in Houston, Olivia finds herself in Chicago, alone, betrayed, and far from home. Soon everything she thought she knew about herself and her life will be challenged. She has only courage, love, and her passion for music to carry her through the maelstrom—or draw her further in.
Ash is the man who has everything—everything except healing from the losses of a lifetime. His only peace lies in the sweet flow of music pouring from his guitar.
What happens when the married woman and the handsome widower are thrown together by fate?
Out of the Box Awakening is a story of shared passion and shared joy. Jennifer Theriot has written a compelling book about what happens when two people find new life and new love for themselves and for those around them.
The author gives you lots of background information on her characters. You get an intimate look at the characters, who they were, who they are, and who they want to be. You get to know both the main characters and the supporting cast on multiple different levels. I really appreciated the fact that the cast wasn’t full of a bunch of teens or twenty-somethings, but rather individuals with life experience acquired over time.
Overall, this was a very interesting look at life and love.
