BECOMING MONA LISA
Black Rose Writing
Rating: 4 Cups
Mona Siggs is miserable. One day, on looking in the mirror, she does not recognize the sad woman staring back at her. She has been aware of the upsetting distance between she and her husband, but has not realized how lost she is. She wonders how she can have forgotten who she is, or the love she and her husband have shared.
Tom Siggs is trapped in what seems to be a loveless marriage. Nothing in his life makes him happy anymore. When he believes his marriage is over, he is pleasantly surprised with a second chance to fix the things that have gone wrong.
In a moment of inspiration, Mona writes these poignant words: “We are not invisible because the world does not see us. We become invisible when we can no longer see ourselves.” Now she is on a journey to save her marriage and find herself. With many frustrating and humorous mishaps along the way, she and her husband learn to work together and love each other once more.
Mona’s journey is very inspirational. There are many who think they are lost or invisible, but this story shows how someone can take charge of their lives once more. It is also refreshing to see the characters working to mend their marriage and find love again, in a world where divorce is the norm. All of the characters are well developed, to the point where they feel like my friends by the end. Each character grows noticeably and changes as the tale unfolds. The story is realistic, funny and touching.
