The Ones Who Matter Most
Happiness is by choice, not by chance
I’ve yet to meet a person who has not experienced hardship, pain, suffering, or disappointment in their life. It’s what a person does in difficult times that separates people into two groups. When life gives you
The Ones Who Matter Most is a beautiful story about the realization that the hard knocks of life do not have to define you and keep you from the love and happiness you desire. Rachael Herron takes the lives of Fern Bailey, a single mom whose husband left her at the birth of their son, and Abby Roberts, a married young professional who desperately wants a baby only to find her husband had a vesectomy behind her back, and brings them together under the most unexpected circumstances. Following the unexpected death of her husband, Abby discovers that he had an ex-wife and son. Abby’s impetuous decision to seek out Fern and her son leads them all on a journey of reflection and healing which ultimately brings them to the point of realization that the most important people in our lives are not always the ones we expect.
I’ve always had a strong opinion about certain types of books, but until I started writing reviews I never put much thought into why. The Ones Who Matter Most helped me realize that I love characters who try to find the best in a situation and refuse to become a victim in life. They realize that they, ultimately, have control of their outcomes, even if it’s not in the way that they imagined. They don’t make excuses or expect others to fix their life for them. Abby and Fern both struggle with their lot in life and insecurities but, despite the ups and downs, work through them to obtain the happiness they both desired. For me that was uplifting and left me in great spirits.

Tanya’s love for books has been a lifelong passion that she likes sharing with others. Reading is also the thing that relaxes her after a day of juggling the many responsibilities that come with being being wife to an amazing man, mother to four great kids spread around the world, business manager, and farm hand on their place in southwest Missouri; home to Akaushi cattle and a menagerie of pygmy goats, horses, chickens, dogs and cats.
