Authors spend months or even years working on their books, but once done, it is out of their hands and into the hands of the public. Sometimes fans interpret the books in different ways than the author intended or feel like the author owes them more than what was delivered.
Feeling heartbroken or depressed? Are you experiencing loss? The good news is that there is a book for every heartbreak: books can dim the pain with humor, provide hope in a happy ending or just make you feel like you are not alone.
