As the first self-published Kindle book ever to be optioned for film I had high expectations of Karen McQuestion's, A Scattered Life. It was the second book that I had read written by McQuestion but I enjoyed it far more than Favorite. It may have had mixed reviews on the blogosphere but don't let that put you off. The book documents family life in Wisconsin and the lives of three families are carefully intertwined. There are numerous protagonists but Skyla sticks out at the forefront. She married into the Plinka family and through her friendship with Roxanne and her job at Mystic Books her character helps to tie together each family. A Scattered Life shows how different the lives we lead can be and the importance of living each day as if it's our last. Through Skyla and Roxanne, McQuestion highlights the importance of family and friendship showing her readers how love and support can often be found where you least expect it. Although this was not a unique or unexpected story and nor was it a lengthy one either, it was a well written and interesting perspective of family life that I would recommend to women of any age.
