Maggie in the Middle, by Debbie Viggiano

Maggie in the MIddle book cover
Maggie is adjusting to life’s changes. Her children are all grown up and her parents are battling age. Can she ever find happiness again or will she always put others first?
Maggie in the Middle is an emotional yet light hearted book about big changes.
It is a situation that many people find themselves in. An empty nest as your kids grow up and then the responsibility of caring for parents as their health deteriorates. All the while trying to work and live your own life. This is the situation Maggie finds herself in: her children have flown the nest, her parents are struggling with mental and physical health.
There are some huge issues dealt with in this book and it could have been very heavy. However, the writing is light hearted in tone and there are plenty of bad jokes to counter the deep emotions. I felt Maggie’s distress, frustration and grief. Her sister is completely unreasonable and this is partially excused in the final chapters but I did not feel this was sufficient justification for her abhorrent behaviour throughout the book.
Maggie finds friendship and love through a dog rescue centre. Her developing relationship with Bess the German Shepherd was just delightful and uplifting. This also provides Maggie with the opportunity to move on with her life and confront the big changes that she has been avoiding.
Maggie in the MIddle is packed full of emotion and cheesy jokes, radiating warmth from every page.

Maggie In The Middle
When Maggie King turned sixty, she thought her life complete.
Now she’s sixty-one, and everything has gone horribly wrong.
Husband Greg has abruptly upped and left leaving Maggie bewildered. But there’s no time to question his departure because her ancient parents are all-consuming.
Once fondly referred to as the Golden Oldies, they’re now the BOBs – Bad-Tempered Old Buggers.
Sister Freya is never available to help, and Maggie is rapidly reaching the end of her tether.
She wants her life – and husband – back.
Instead, she’s trapped in what has been coined the Sandwich Generation – supporting both children and parents – except this particular sarnie is in danger of falling apart.
Maggie needs to learn that when life is like a club sandwich, it needs the best ingredients – and that includes lashings of love and some knee-trembling romance!
