In The Context of Love by Linda K. Sienkiewicz is the story of Angelica Schirrick. The novel opens with Angelica talking about her children and how she is dreading meeting their father, Garrick. After a disastrous marriage, Angelica is trying to find her footing. Her life is not what she thought it was, and things are getting worse. This made her reflect on things, things that were in the back of her mind. She remembered her first true love and how that love is still on her mind and how he still keeps her company at night. Was it her bad decisions or was it just bad luck that lured Angelica away from her true love? No matter what the catalyst was, Angelica wants to rise from the ashes and change her life. She wants to stand tall and proud and create a better life for her children and for herself.
This is one of those novels that inspires you and makes you want to do better. Angelica is the type of protagonist that everyone can relate to. She depicts our fears and our anxieties. The story itself is different and fast paced. The reader gets all the information they need at the moment. There is a fulfilling quality to this novel that makes you feel satisfied, but at the same time it makes you want more. Another thing I noticed was that the novel was written in a very lyrical way. I could sing the dialogues and descriptions if I wanted to. This added a lot more fun to the story line and my reading experience.
