The swimmer is a fictional tale about Bess and her journey, making her final decisions about her life. It hasn’t been easy for Bess. She has lost the battle with pancreatic cancer, a failed marriage, and as a psychotherapist, she understands that her focus has been lost. She needs to accept help and take care of herself.
Meeting Stephan changes things, and although his connection with Bess appears to make life a little more bearable, things turn for the worse, and another heartache happens. The story is filled with ups and downs. As a mother, Bess is entirely dedicated to her family, but things just never seem to pan out for her.
I enjoyed reading the story. It was filled with emotions, and Bess really pulled it together. You instantly felt Bess’s dilemmas and wanted the best for her. The story brushes on some LGBTQ+, but the storyline does not revolve around the subject matter. It was well written, and I appreciated the difficult topics it introduced.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fictional tales.Tweet
