Blog Tour: Mile 21 by Sarah Dunster

Review * Giveaway

Mile 21 by Sarah Dunster

Book Description:

The singles ward is the last place Abish wants to be. But after the unexpected death of her husband (and after being kicked out of her mom’s place), she has to move into single-student housing to finish up her schooling. Maybe training for a marathon and winning the heart of the handsome executive secretary are exactly what Abish needs to get a personal best.


I haven't read a book in awhile that I totally devoured, but Mile 21 was so good that I didn't want to put it down! I picked it up from the post office on my lunch break, and was immediately sucked in. I couldn't wait for work to be over so I could get back to reading. I stayed up way too late to finish it, but it was worth it.

I loved that the setting was one I was familiar with. It was a fun throwback to my junior college days. Some of the references had me laughing out loud. I would love for my old roommates to read it to see what they think.

I really enjoyed the mix of emotions Dunster portrayed-such an emotional book! So many sad things happened, but there was always a glimmer of hope! I loved the characters and the author's whit. I am so happy to own a copy that I can read again and again.
