Hannah's List By Debbie Macomber (Wanda)

 Make time for friends. Make time for Debbie Macomber. On the anniversary of his beloved wife's death, Dr. Michael Everett receives a letter Hannah had written him. In it she reminds him of her love and makes one final request. An impossible request: I want you to marry again. She tells him he shouldn't spend the years he has left grieving her. And to that end she's chosen three women she asks him to consider. First on Hannah's list is Winter Adams, a trained chef who owns a cafe on Seattle's Blossom Street. The second is Leanne Lancaster, Hannah's oncology nurse. Michael knows them both. But the third name is one he's not familiar with - Macy Roth. Each of these three women has her own heartache, her own private grief. During the months that follow, he spends time with Winter, Leanne and Macy, learning more about each of them...and about himself.

"Hannah's List" is another first for me. This is my first book by Debbie Macomber. Debbie has such a good sense of how to manipulate the reader to really care about the characters. I love this book. I read it in 2 days. That's how good it is.

Let me start off that the main character in this book "Michael" loses his wife Hannah to cancer. And on the year of his wife's death his brother-in-law gives him a letter from his dead wife. Hannah wrote a letter for Michael before she died explaining how she wants him to marry and have children. She knew he wouldn't go out and date so she wrote him a list of 3 women she feels would have a good impact in Michael's life. But how can he remarry when he is still in love with his dead wife. So at first Michael wasn't interested whatsoever. But with the encouragement of his brother-in-law he meets the ladies his wife put on his list.

So he meets them one by one and they all help him start moving on and letting go of his dead wife. They teach him to enjoy life again, to laugh, to smile and most of all ONE special one teaches him to love again. A feeling he thought he'd never feel again but he was wrong and Hannah was right. Finally happy once again all thanks to "Hannah's List". =)
