It’s Not All Downhill From Here is new women’s, multicultural fiction from award-winning and bestselling author, Terry McMillan.
Sixty-eight-year-old Loretha Curry has a full life as a wife, mother, business owner and loyal friend to a diverse group of women. She doesn’t believe that life is over at sixty-five. Loretha experiences a devastating loss and temporarily loses herself, but amid the turmoil she comes to realize the value of family, friends and self confidence.
It’s Not All Downhill From Here is a well-written novel told from the first person perspective. The characters are alive and vibrant. The novel is packed with sincere, vividly expressed emotions. Grief, happiness, love, hate and anger all seem real and appropriate. The author explores difficult familial relationships, but there is enough humor to offset the darker emotions. Ultimately, this is a story about love, loss, forgiveness, redemption and resurrected life. It’s never to late to change and improve. I throughly enjoyed this novel and rate it 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys good fiction.
