Take your life back in the tracks!
Candice Summerville is invisible. No one seems to notice her – not really. Heck, she often doesn’t notice herself, except for her monthly scrutiny in the mirror to check on her body’s steady slide towards middle age.
But when her ancient, practical estate car is consigned to the scrap heap, Candice falls in love with a cute, purpleconvertible, and from that moment on her life begins to take on a whole new meaning. Strangers wave at her and people stop to talk, and suddenly she isn’t invisible any longer.
Life seems to be looking up, especially when she meets silver fox and handy-man, Paul. There’s just one fly in the ointment, one thing she that has her second-guessing herself.
Is it the car that Paul sees – or is it her?
The title of this book gives you just the wrong idea! This is a eyes opening story, teaching you it’s never too late to get back in the game!
Candice is nearly fifty and a divorced woman. She doesn’t stand out in anything, it’s even the opposite, she’s rather invisible.
When her car gave it’s final breath, she buys a new one, and this one really is something else. It’s a cute purple convertible!
As the car is a real eye catcher, so does Candace. Slowly she starts to be less invisible and starts to live more the life!
Even if she’s 50, Candice really grows during the book. She goes from an insecure shadow into a woman not afraid showing she still has it! And she also finally stands up for herself, having a whole life keeping shut. But enough is enough!
This book shows you that you can take every chance in life to take the reins back in your hands, never minding how old or young you are!
Life surprises you on the most unexpected moments and hands you new friendships (and maybe even more) all the time.
And while the book tries to show you that there is more in everyone, it’s not in a patronising tone. It’s written so lightly and kind, that you smile while the moral of the story comes out.
And that’s what the true charm of this book is.
Age is just a number, and I would even dare to say that 50 is the new 30!
