About the Book:
Release Date: 8/1/2021
From the bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners comes a feel-good story about becoming who you were meant to be all along.
Phronsie Linnelle was conceived at Woodstock in a serendipitous liaison between a free-spirited hippie and a farmer’s son and was born with magical wonder flickering in her DNA and rationality knit into her bones. All her life she’s been torn between the two. But now that she’s been betrayed by both love and the mother she once idolized, her rational side is winning.
So when her best friend from childhood proposes that they give up on romance and marry each other, Phronsie agrees. Who better to spend your life with than your best friend? Maybe the connection they already have is love. Maybe there’s no falling to be done. But immediately after they announce their engagement, she encounters someone who makes a very charming and compelling argument for revisiting romance.
While her even-keeled stepmother argues for the safety that comes with her new engagement and her mother relays messages from the universe to hold out for true love, Phronsie must look to her own heart to find the answers that have been there all along.
Miss W’s Review:
The Magic of Found Objects by Maddie Dawson is a FANTASTIC read. Phronsie Linnelle is the main character and I know what its like to have a different name (Wilfrieda here). You always here the story of if you and your bestie both reach a certain age and your not married you will marry each other. Well this is a fantastic twist on that story. When Phronsie’s bestie proposes that they do exactly that, she’s all in. They agree there won’t be love, but she’s okay with the deep connection they already have. After she has announced her engagement, someone pops into her life that may put a wrench into things, maybe real romance? This was such a well written novel. The characters are well developed, fleshed out, flawed and simply embraceable. This story is about more than just love and romance. It is about family and family drama and how Phronsie came to be and how she has dealt with that her whole life. A wonderful womens fiction novel with elements of family, friends, love and romance. I cannot recommend this book enough!
