Welcome to our first official week discussion for the Boho Book Club! I’m very excited to kick this month off with Almost by Anne Eliot. I met Anne at a book event a little over a year ago. She is a fantastic and fun person to be around. Easily one of the most memorable meetings I’ve had in the book community. That being said, I am just now starting to read her books! YES! I know, I’m awful. Mostly because I’m already hooked and cannot wait to see where this book leads me.
This week’s question is below and I would love to read your replies to it! We read pages 1-95 (Chapters 1-10) this week and we will be reading Pages 96-178 (Chapters 11-19) next week.
Having the bit of insight into each of the characters minds left me a bit torn on my thoughts. Jess needed Gray to accept her proposal, but it’s a step to hinder her progress while dealing with her PTSD. While I do think it will have a good outcome, she is actively going against the advice she has been given.
Now, I don’t know Gray’s complete story, but from what I know, I would have taken it. He needs the money, and this is a way to guarantee he would have what he needed. They also both like each other so it wouldn’t be too painful, though Jess tries to convince herself otherwise.
What about you? Would you do anything differently?
