A newly divorced mother is brutally betrayed by her own son in Chad Gayle’s debut novel, Let It Be, a story inspired by the Beatles’ album Let It Be, an album that the Beatles recorded as the band was breaking up.
After she moves to the other side of Texas to get away from her abusive, overbearing husband, Michelle Jansen falls into the arms of Dan Grady, a coworker who dreams of opening a record store and who shares her love for the Beatles. With Dan’s help, Michelle begins to find herself; she repairs her battered self-esteem and finds the self-confidence she needs to put her ex-husband, Bill, in his place, but Bill is determined to mend the family that’s fallen apart, and he engages Michelle’s ten year old son, Joseph, in a conspiracy that threatens not only Michelle’s future happiness but the bond between a mother and her son.
Woven from nine chapters that are directly linked to songs from the Beatles’ album of the same name, Let It Be is a heartwarming story of second chances, of forgiveness and of redemption, a story that rises from the music that inspired a generation.
