Twenty-one-year-old Lizzie loves life and a wedding is sure in the future to the love of her life, Daniel. That is until a tragic accident happens, taking her best friend and leaving Lizzie severely injured, not to mention ending her relationship with Daniel. She convinces herself that no one wants a wife who is crippled and completely changed on the outside because of multiple surgeries from the accident. Lizzie wants to shed this life she has and changes her nickname to Beth, so this is the name everyone knows her by now. Fast forward a decade and Beth is married to Alan and she is a stay-at-home mom to their daughter. When Beth attends a meeting at her daughter's school, she is befriended by a woman who will become her longtime best friend, Noreen. But Beth never imagines where this friendship would lead her.
I am pleasantly surprised with how much I really liked Both Sides of Love. I actually feel as though these wonderful characters are long-time friends. Author Kimberly Wenzler does a fabulous job writing this story in a way that keeps readers engaged in the plot until the very end. The story is filled with Noreen and Beth and their friendship, their families, and the many things they did together, as well as a shocking surprise that kept me up most of the night finishing the book to see what finally happens. I really like all four of the main characters, and their development throughout the book was an enjoyment to read. I'm still not quite sure how I feel about Beth and everything involving her character, but I do like the way Wenzler weaves everything together in the end. Both Sides of Love by Kimberly Wenzler is a really good story of real love, strong friendship, and hope. I think any woman would love reading this story.
