11/52: Maggie by Charles Martin

Maggie by Charles Martin, 4/5 Stars
I love Maggie! I dream about Maggie. Every time I go to the True Love store they tell me that Maggie is on back order and there's no delivery date in the system. Damn, everyone wants a Maggie, huh? I need to find out where they're manufactured: sensitive, active, caring, realizes her own faults, challenges her man to be better, an inability to give up on her dream--which eludes her over and over and over again--but with the strength to rebuild her hope. And ultimately, understand what life has given to her. I say this often to friends, "If you keep working it will work out, one way or another." Stay proactive people, don't let decisions make themselves... and you, too, might get asked if you want to go down to the river for a night time swim. I believe this book is Martin's second effort... and in this one he nailed it.
