Beth is dealing with the stress of parenting and a husband who seems disconnected from her and the family.
Olivia is living alone, separated from her husband David, and still grieving the loss of her autistic son Anthony.
As they go their separate ways, Beth with her friends and Olivia mostly alone, it would take a bit of serendipity for the two of them to connect.
Eventually they do connect through photography. Searching for a means to support herself, Olivia picks up her camera. And when Beth finds one of her fliers, the two are finally meeting for a photo shoot of Beth and her three daughters.
What neither of them realizes, however, is that years before, Beth caught a glimpse of Anthony on the beach, lining up his rocks; the scene riveted her attention and she was captivated.
Now, years later, Beth, in her struggles to rediscover who she is, begins writing again. And inspiration comes to her in the voice of an autistic boy named Anthony.
How will writing Anthony’s story help Beth find the answers to her questions and solve her problems? Will the voice of Anthony guide her and help her find her own truth?
Will Beth’s story help Olivia finally realize Anthony’s reason for being and redirect her toward happiness and love again? A beautiful story told in the alternating perspectives of the two women, Love Anthony was a story that I could not stop thinking about. Definitely five stars for me.
