Play For Me is a compelling women's fiction story that easily draws the reader into the drama and emotions that come with the complexity of life, the dynamics of relationships, learning to confront one's past, making choices, and moving forward. Set in New York City, the reader can't help but get drawn into Lily's story as she discovers that the empty nest lifestyle is not what she wants, so she embarks on a personal midlife journey of self-discovery and a chance to follow her desire and find happiness.

Author Celine Keating weaves an intriguing women's fiction story that will easily keep the reader engaged and turning the pages. This wonderfully realistic story provides much food for thought as Lily has choices to make, and tries to figure out what she really wants in life in order to fulfill her desire and find happiness. Lily's story has a great mixture of humor, drama, angst, heartbreak, and crazy trials and tribulations, but her journey of personal discovery is realistic, compelling, and very empowering, it is the kind of story that anyone can relate to, and you can't help but cheer Lily on as she finds her way and embraces her true self.

Play For Me is a wonderful women's fiction story of personal self-discovery, and learning to make difficult choices in order to move forward in one's life.

Play for Me by Celine Keating is a touching story of a mother in need of re-creating herself. Once her son left for college, her entire life and identity went away too. After going to a concert with her son, she found her purpose. It was to follow her heart and vicariously live through the experience. But it put a strain on her life, her marriage and her security.

When I first received this book, Mrs. Keating thought I wouldn't be interested in the tale. Boy was she wrong. This story was beautiful! Being a homeschooling housewife, I know what it's like to be consumed with concerned of the family that I become lost- almost non-existent. I was able to relate to Lily to a point.

This story did not disappoint and I truly loved the ending. If you are looking for a mature story that brings emotions to the forefront, along with a strong sense of adventure, check out Play for Me. You won't regret it.
