All the Right Mistakes
Laura Jamison’s debut novel, All The Right Mistakes, is a delightful read. With chapters that take turns telling the story between five best friends, Jamison explores the notion of life events and timing in one’s own life and what happens when those events may or may not occur in what we feel is at the appropriate time.
Friends since college, Heather has published a book of advice using her friends’ lives as fodder. As the book takes off, Sarah, Elizabeth, Carmen, and Martha feel at first gutted at Heather’s words, but then begin to reflect on their own lives; if they had taken Heather’s advice, would their decisions have been different, and would their lives have taken a different route?
All the Right Mistakes asks questions women ponder themselves day in and day out. Career or children? And if you try to have it all, how do you balance being a devoted mother and have a thriving career at the same time? Would you have been bypassed for a promotion if you didn’t have children? But most importantly, realizing that no matter where life took you and what decisions were made, things will work out in the end.
