Newly-separated Michelle Jansen longs to create a new life for herself and her children, Joseph and Pam, but making a fresh start isn't easy. A fresh start means upheaval – uprooting her family, moving across the state of Texas, settling into a too-small home, entering the workforce – giving up the family's old life in search of something new and better. But even in the midst of chaos, Michelle experiences an awakening: she rediscovers her love of the Beatles and finds solace in the last album the Beatles released, Let It Be; she joins, and adapts to, the workplace; she finds promise in a burgeoning relationship with a man who loves her without trying to control her.
Soon, however, Michelle realizes that her overbearing ex-husband is willing to destroy her new life if he can't have her to himself. Given the past, her ex's behavior is no real surprise, but when she is betrayed by her own son, Michelle is hurt in an unexpected, almost unimaginable way.
When passion and rage collide, one man will nearly lose his life, one will lose his freedom, and one family will never be the same. Can this fractured family find healing and forgiveness in the midst of guilt and sorrow? Or will love give them the strength to let it be?
A powerful story of loss, longing, and forgiveness that unfolds under West Texas skies, Let It Be is a mesmerizing debut novel. Filled with true-to-life characters that will stay with readers long after the final page is turned, Let It Be is a touching tale that probes human frailties and foibles, sacrifice and satisfaction, decisions and desire. Part family saga, part coming-of-age tale, part testament to the power of a mother's love, Let It Be chronicles the breakup of a marriage, the destruction of a family, and the struggle to come together in the aftermath of what remains.
