Waiting for Zoë is a singular that explores a person’s skill to suffer within the face of tragedy—and love. A character-driven, mainstream novel set in Wyoming, Colorado, long island urban, and Southern California, it makes the reader ask the tough query: who's in command of growing ourselves?
James R. Ament says, “I had this tale in brain a few younger one that it seems that has every thing going for her, yet then her lifestyles falls aside. The query is: Does she get it again? And if this is the case, how? i wished to determine if I’d be proud of the result.”
He is. and you'll be, too. there's even a reader’s advisor at the back of the book!
“A genre-bending novel…Stripped to its necessities, anticipating Zoë describes the bittersweet collision of a vivid younger East Coast lady of customers and a wealthy Southern California businessman. Strangers on web page one, the not likely confederates stick to separate paths of loss, discomfort, and emotional desolation that [eventually] intersect…to locate new paths prime out of the confusion and purposelessness that threaten to weigh down them. The characters are sharply outlined and attractive, and the discussion flows easily and strikes the narrative alongside at a comfy velocity. The settings and occasions are neither contrived nor trite, and the conflicts are without delay demanding and obtainable. in brief, there’s not anything inside of looking forward to Zoë that marks its writer as a newcomer to the literary stage.”
