My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I couldn’t put this story down! I was hooked from the first page and didn’t put it down till I was done! The story focuses around a woman who is in her 40’s. She realizes that after 24 years of marriage it just wasn’t working. However, to get away from her husband proves to be difficult. He is possessive, abusive, and a control freak. He manipulates the people around him to make it out that she is crazy. Yet she knows that if she doesn’t get away she soon will not be breathing. The reason why I couldn’t put this book down is because it’s very relatable. If you’re in the mood for a book you just can’t put down, then this is the book for you! Happy reading my friends.

Book Summary:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr delivers a poignant and powerful story about how one woman’s best intentions lead to the worst of situations and how the power of love helps her to heal and ultimately triumph.

From the outside looking in, Lauren Delaney has a life to envy—a successful career, a solid marriage to a prominent surgeon and two beautiful daughters who are off to good colleges. But on her twenty-fourth wedding anniversary Lauren makes a decision that will change everything.

Lauren won’t pretend things are perfect anymore. She defies the controlling husband who has privately mistreated her throughout their marriage and files for divorce. And as she starts her new life, she meets a kindred spirit—a man who is also struggling with the decision to end his unhappy marriage.

But Lauren’s husband wants his “perfect” life back and his actions are shocking. Facing an uncertain future, Lauren discovers an inner strength she didn’t know she had as she fights for the love and happiness she deserves.
