(from our review) While I love books that make me laugh, reading them continuously would be like a steady diet of sweets. And if you have ever overdosed on processed sugar, then you know it can make you start craving real food. Women’s fiction books are like my real food. Though there is not the always the Hollywood romantic ending, the books still give me hope and reflect the ebb and flow of life – that bad thing happen to good people but good things happen too. One Mountain Away is one of those books. Living in the shadow of the town’s drunk and shyster created a burning desire in Charlotte Hale for prestige and respect. While her ambition to eradicate all vestiges of her family’s white trash reputation propelled her to great success, her dependence on the opinions of others drove her husband and daughter away. For ten years she has been satiated by being the controlling force in her universe, but now she has been hit with something beyond her control. After being diagnosed with leukemia, she is left grappling with her own mortality and the realization of how empty her life is - filled with other self-absorbed professionals but lacking family and friends.
