Review

STEADY AS YOU GO by Cheryl Murnane is a heartfelt story of a chance meeting, a deep friendship, and a dying man’s last wish. STEADY AS YOU GO proves once more that while we are busy making plans, life happens – and even the most methodical can arrange only so much before the true plan for our lives takes over.

Three lives are forever changed when fate intervenes. As a young girl, Maggie’s world was shattered by the unexpected death of her father. When she meets Tim in college, Maggie realizes that his cautious lifestyle was exactly what she is seeking. Tim loves protecting his wife and sheltering her from life’s pains, but he soon finds that life has a tendency to disrupt even the best intentions when their carefully planned future is turned upside down after they receive startling news. Will is mending a broken heart after the woman he loved leaves him. When a chance encounter with Tim develops into a treasured friendship, Will finds himself drawn into the struggles of Tim’s life, as Tim and Maggie grapple with the realization that their life will never be the same. As time slips away for Tim, he knows Will is his only chance to keep Maggie safe and provide her with the security she craves, but Maggie is torn about letting her guard down with the type of man who yearns for adventure. Could it be in Will’s destiny to open his heart to love one more time?

STEADY AS YOU GO will make you laugh and make you cry. It is well-written and full of emotion.

STEADY AS YOU GO is Cheryl’s second book and like the first, tells an inspirational story of a deep and profound love between a husband and a wife. In a world full of self-centered people, there are still those who possess wonderful qualities. They love deeply. They care deeply, and they are truly kind-hearted. In STEADY AS YOU GO you will meet a husband, who upon learning he is dying, reaches past his own pain to ask his closest friend to carry out his last wish.

This story of unselfish love will have all of us looking deep into our hearts to see if we could ever measure up to this book’s hero. STEADY AS YOU GO will make you laugh and make you cry. It is well-written and full of emotion.

I am giving the book 5 stars.

About the Reviewer

Donna McBroom-Theriot

Writer. Book Reviewer. Southern Lady. Connoisseur of Chocolate.

My Life is like an episode of “I love Lucy!” I’m a writer, book reviewer, and a Southern Lady who loves her Sweet Tea. My blog, My Life. One Story at a Time. is where I’ve been writing short stories since 2009. As luck would have it, the very first short story I wrote was published within months of my writing it.

This quote pretty much sums me up: “Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner.” Well, you know that old saying, “The road to Hell is paved with good intentions” – that road is usually the one I’m on!

And, as much I used to mock (we all grow up eventually) the Cajun dialect, 15 years ago, I found myself marrying the sweetest Cajun boy – complete with the requisite white trawl boots and a trawl boat.

I love writing stories about the South and life with our two German Shepherds, and the four kids who meander in and out of our lives as they live their own journeys.

Most days you’ll find me out on the front porch swing, with the dogs at my feet, a tall glass of sweet iced tea close by, and a good book. It’s what life in the South is all about.
