Laugh out loud in the face of Liv’s adversity as she blunders through life, lurching from one catastrophe to the next, in her struggle to escape her disastrous marriage and build a new life for herself and her two young sons.
“The teacher responsible for an early school report had shown great insight when she wrote ‘Olivia has a sunny disposition.’ Her default position was most definitely sunny side up but recent years had seen her engaged in an epic struggle to keep that sunny disposition, when all about her were losing theirs.”
Set in the mid-eighties, Seeking Atticus is a funny, heart-warming story that begins with a letter that finds thirty-something Olivia, living and working at a friend’s boarding kennels as she awaits the outcome of an impending court case to determine her financial settlement from her recent divorce.
From one debacle to another, it is her blossoming friendship with Michael that keeps her, just about, on the right side of sanity… Michael and Atticus Finch, of course!
With Atticus’s moral compass as her guide, Liv attempts to steer a course through troubled waters in her quest to find happiness on the other side.
