Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is.
The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the existence she always wanted?
My Review of Love and Other Subjects
As we grow and mature, the relationships that we are in go through some changes. Sometimes those we thought we would be the best of friends with forever and a day slowly (or sometimes quickly) drift away. There are times when we have an “ah-ha” moment and have to ask ourselves, “Why in the world am I in this relationship / friendship?”
That seemed to be a resounding theme in Love and Other Subjects. The main character, Carolyn, and her duo of friends all grow and learn things about themselves during their first year as teachers in an inner-city school. Taking into consideration that her first school is led by a principal who clearly has his own set of internal issues and is far from capable of leading a school or a staff, Carolyn has a lot on her plate during this stage of growth and change in her life.
Of course, love plays a big part in Love and Other Subjects. The characters all learn important lessons about love – the sacrifices and compromises we make, letting go and growing together.
