Down And Out in Manhattan is the story of life-changing decisions and second chances. When Margaret Maghpye, single and living in Manhattan, is fired from her job she decides to take a bold leap. With the thought of facing another painful holiday season, she exhausts her savings on a Mexican cruise, hoping it will lift her spirits. Having spent her scarred, young adult life making all the wrong choices, at first blush, this seems to be just another mistake of a lonely dreamer. As she struggles to survive shipboard intrigue and entrapment, there's a bright spot when she befriends a fellow passenger, Michael Sanders - an enigmatic recluse with plenty of reasons to keep to himself. But, having felt the sting of heartbreak time and again, Maggie may not be ready to embark on another relationship. When Michael must leave the ship to assist in an emergency, she wonders if their friendship will endure the distance between them, particularly when she encounters a crisis of her own.
Another book into reality… which shockingly transports me into what reality is..:)
Ms. Magers wrote a wondrous tale that would left out readers feeling blessed and in love…
This book is all about second chances and what you do with it… often people , once they experienced pain and sorrow especially for love, they’ll be afraid to try again and believe…
I love and I’m inspired by the main character Maggie Magphye, she is the kind of person who welcomes problems with a smile..she easily forgives, does not bury hatreds, kind to everyone, although her little weakness is how unlucky she is… Imagine, from all of her marriages, not one was successful?... anyone would give up, if that happened to them… also her misfortunes make me believe that sometimes it need to happen in order for good things to come.
My next favorite is Michael Sanders, a pilot who resigned because of his family accident blaming himself all throughout those years, even though he has nothing to do with it, and he can’t do anything with it, he was also one of the passengers in the Cruise, and I love the fact that he didn’t really give up on Maggie…
Follow Maggie’s travel in the Cruise as she finds friendship, love and herself…
A wonderful book!:)
