Kingston’s Project by Carrie Beckort

Published February 2014

How do you find the strength to embrace a future that’s different than the one you planned? 

For Sarah Mitchell, the answer is simple—you don’t. For two years, Sarah has shut herself off from most of the world around her. She needs to move on, but doesn’t know how to begin.

Unexpectedly, Sarah is presented with an opportunity that could change everything. Elijah Kingston, her firm’s largest client, wants her to lead a highly confidential assignment. When Sarah learns the shocking nature of Kingston’s project, she is torn between Elijah’s promise of healing and her fear of falling deeper into despair.

My Thoughts…

An old man with a secret project, a grieving widow, and a trip across the country…I had no idea what to expect with Kingston’s Project.    I was extremely happy with how this story went.  It is a touching story with a “grandfather” figure taking special interest in a woman who has a lot of life to live.   It was an emotional story with lots of ups and many downs, but yet I could not put it down.  

This is not an easy book to read.   It is a man, Elijah, who is trying to help a widow realize that her life is not over.   He has a reason to need her to help her, but this is not shared until later in the story.  There is so much that I would like to tell you, so many amazing things happen throughout the story, but to tell you means that I give away too much of the story.  I hate when a review gives away spoilers. 

I can honestly tell you that this is a book that I will not forget.  I will recommend it to my friends and I wish my book club had read this with me.  I can only imagine the conversations we would have.   There are so many great and sad things happening in this book that I will happily recommend it to my friends.
