The First Year by Crystal Liechty

This is a story about Beth. She and her friends are all newly married but they find out quickly that married life isn't as easy as it looks. And when an old boyfriend shows up, things get even more confusing. Beth must learn to stop making a joke of everything and look inside herself for the answers.

I think that many newlyweds can relate to the things that Beth experiences during her first year of marriage. I found familiar people in the characters of the book. No one was perfect, but everyone was doing the best they knew how. And in the end they kept trying and that was the most important part.

Crystal Liechty had a fresh, almost irreverent style, and she infused the book with humor that kept me smiling. I will be interested to see what her next book brings.

I enjoyed this book too. I went into it expecting a frothy chick-lit, but was pleasantly surprised by the depth and inner soul-searching the characters go through before the end. I'm looking forward to Crystal's next book as well.
