Description

"Here's what I know: death abducts the dying, but grief steals from those left behind." A tragic past defines her. Yet Julia started over with Evan Hamilton; but then he dies. Now Julia is lost. Alone. In the "after" again. She stands at the precipice of her life, looking over the edge, seeing nothing while grief attempts to claim her, until a chance meeting with Jake Winston literally saves her life. But their unexpected connection leaves Julia questioning everything else, including herself most of all. Edgy, rich prose, interspersed with levity and angst, SEEING JULIA is compelling contemporary fiction that explores vastness of grief, despair, and betrayal; yet clearly demonstrates the amazing heights to which love can go.show more

"Katherine Owen is an amazing story teller. Her beautiful writing pulls you into Julia's grief, and I found my heart aching right along with her." Cheles Bells ~ A Belle's Tales Blog "I found this book to be immediately captivating. Yes it's a dark sad subject but I was gripped. I was instantly impressed by Katherine's writing, she conveyed the initial grief and despair at yet another loss so well, I felt this loss with her. The initial chapters reminded me of Maggie O'Farrell's "After You'd Gone," that's how impressed I was." Becky Gulc ~ Chick Lit Central Blog "I recommend this novel to all who enjoy a highly emotional story that tugs at your heart strings with a main character who shows remarkable growth throughout the book. "Seeing Julia" rightly deserves its 5 stars!" Ellen Fritz ~ Books4Tomorrow Blog OVERVIEW: A desperate widow questions her ability to start over and battles grief, guilt, and an undeniable attraction to a handsome stranger, but then, she learns of a betrayal by the one person she thought she knew. A betrayal that leads her to question everything and everyone she believes in, including herself. MORE PRAISE: "For some reason, I expected 'Seeing Julia' to be a fluffy, unreal romance novel. I don't know where I got this idea but I couldn't have been more wrong, 'Seeing Julia' is so much more. It is deep and real and full of emotion and pain and friendship and love. I can't say enough good about it." Dana Burness ~ Let's Book It 5 of 5 Stars "Thanks to Twitter, I found this terrific author, Katherine Owen, and just finished reading her wonderful book in, well, a day... This is a terrific novel. The story is gripping, has some surprising twists and turns, and has a sweet ending..." Emily Boursaw - Macktastic Blog Book 5 of 5 Stars "This is a wonderful story that shows the strength of a woman, and mother, and the priceless love of friends. I couldn't put it down." Pat Fordyce 5 of 5 Stars "I thought this was a great book! ...the kind of stories that get my heart racing, the kind of books I can't put down, because they are written in a way that the reader can really feel the pain of the characters when they lose someone they love or are betrayed by a friend or lover, you also can feel their moments of joy and triumphs." Lisa ~ Goodreads Review OTHER WORKS BY KATHERINE OWEN If you were looking for Katherine Owen's other contemporary fiction, check out: "Not To Us". Beware this is another emotional roller coaster ride of a novel. If you were looking for Katherine Owen's latest release in contemporary fiction, search for: "When I See You" by Katherine Owen. Early reviews indicate this may be one of Owen's best. The story is written from two points of view that of a woman's personal journey in starting over and a soldier's return home in spite of tremendous loss. For anyone who enjoys the emotional roller coaster that is love and relationships and can't get enough of the touching love stories like those of Nicholas Sparks or the twists and turns of stories like those of Jodi Picoult, you've got to read Katherine Owen's fiction. Because trust, love, and fate test relationships in all kinds of ways...show more
