|Clara Tildon believes one should live for the moment since no one ever knows what the future holds for anyone. Since beating her cancer five-and-a-half-years ago, she decided to open her own Bed-and-Breakfast. She is trying to find her guinea pig when she runs into Jake Yates, who appears to be a bit buzzed. He is staying at the Bed-and-Breakfast while attending a wedding. Jake finds Clara like a breath of sunshine. She finds him extremely handsome, yet a bit too serious at times. Jake is not looking forward to jumping into any relationship. He wonders how Clara can be so upbeat and positive about life. The more time he stays in town, Clara shows him how to live life freely and relish every minute, even enjoying some walk in the rain. Realizing that her disease might return, Clara lives for the moment, making every minute count. Can Jake learn the true meaning of happiness while seeing life through Clara's eyes?
Embracing the Lemonade Life is such a poignant read, one cannot help but want to read it again and again. Clara and Jake are genuine in their daily lives. Their expressions are most pictorial every time they are together. The secondary players add just the right amount of finesse to the story, allowing the reader to learn more about what goes through the person dealing with a terrible disease. As someone who can definitely relate to someone suffering with the illness, this reader can say Sandra Sookoo pens a remarkable read that really grabs at the heart. Once I started reading, it was extremely hard to stop. The wide-range of emotions and expressions indeed are quite captivating and exceptionally warm. Truly she has sketched Clara and Jake as lovable characters that will always stay close to the heart.
