ABOUT THIS BOOK
War's over, cherry-print dresses, parking above the city lights, swing dancing.
Beautiful, seventeen-year-old Violet lives in a perfect world.
Everybody loves her.
In 2012, she's still beautiful, charming, and surrounded by admirers.
Veronica "Ronni" Johnson, licensed practical nurse and aspiring writer, meets the captivating Violet in the assisted living facility where Violet requires no assistance, just lots of male attention. When she dies, she leaves Ronni a very generous bequest―only if Ronni completes a book about her life within one year. As she's drawn into the world of young Violet, Ronni is mesmerized by life in a simpler time. It's an irresistible journey filled with revelations, some of them about men Ronni knew as octogenarians at Fairfield Springs.
Struggling, insecure, flailing at the keyboard, Ronni juggles her patients, a new boyfriend, and a Samsonite factory of emotional baggage as she tries to craft a manuscript before her deadline.
But then the secrets start to emerge, some of them in person. And they don't stop.
With an engaging storyline and deftly-woven characters, IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU by Beth Duke is the kind of book that will have you recommending it to your friends purely so you can have someone else to discuss it with.
Ronni enjoys her job as a carer for the most part but deep down she would love to be a writer. When her favourite patient, Violet, passes away, she leaves Ronni with the means to follow her dreams in more than one way. Alongside some money, Violet has also shared her life with Ronni - the ups and downs, the tragedies and the love that she has experienced in Alabama after the war right up to the day she died. Violet always shone no matter where she was and she knows that Ronni can make her life a bestseller now that she is gone. But as Ronni begins to dig a little deeper into Violet's life there are secrets waiting to be unearthed and along the way Ronni's life will change too ...
IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU by Beth Duke is the kind of grand story that sweeps you along in its descriptions and makes the past feel like the present as you read it. The story jumps between the two timelines which worked really well and there was never a moment when I wanted to put this book down. I smiled, I cried, and my heart may have even broken a little at times, which is always the perfect sign to me that a book is special and IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU by Beth Duke is definitely special. A must-read for fiction fans who love a dual timeline and excellent characters.
