Anybody Out There? (Walsh Family #4)
Recuperating from her injuries, a mystified Anna returns to Manhattan. Slowly beginning to remember what happened, she sets off on a search to find Aidan -- a hilarious quest involving lilies (she can't stop smelling them), psychics, mediums, and anyone in the city who can promise her a reunion with her beloved. . . .
Written in her classic style, marrying the darker parts of life with humor and wit, "Anybody Out There?" is Marian Keyes's best novel to date, a wonderfully charming look at love here and ever after.
From the beginning, Anna Walsh's story sets forth a tumble of emotions. Her accident has left her in the care of her family, especially her mother who never really wanted her to leave Ireland in the first place. But Anna, who still can't really remember what happened, wants to go back to NYC and get on with her life.
Little by little, Anna is able to piece togther what was once her life before her accident. When she finally discovers what happened to her, she is devastated. Her sister, Rachel, the only one in NYC, is there looking out for her. But sometimes she feels so hopeless and nothing in the world can make her feel better. Slowly but surely, she begins to meet people who help her heal in ways she never imagined.
I thought that this book was really great. This was my first Marian Keyes book and it definately won't be my last. Once I started this novel, I couldn't put it down. I had to figure out what happened to Anna. This is one novel you won't want to put down. This isn't an ordinary chick lit; it's sad and makes you think about life. I'd definately recommend this as a great summer read.
