Sometimes you read a book that is so emotional that brings readers to tears. I found a book like that after reading this story that I couldn't put down. The author has developed characters that are strong, have flaws but each looking for that special someone to spend their life with.
Weston and Brandy have wanted a child for so long. Their dream is about to come true as Brandy is three weeks away from giving birth. The nursery is ready, her overnight bag is packed and they are both excited about their first child being born . But then a tragedy happens and they lose their child . The loss of their child is overwhelming for both of them. Brandy is dealing with depression so severe she doesn't want to get out of bed or a desire to be with her husband. She has placed blame on herself that the baby died and can't shake the feeling that she didn't take care of herself during pregnancy. Weston is grieving as well , but when he feels his wife pulling away from him, the hurt of rejection is painful.
As their marriage starts to unravel, two people will enter their life that will have a major impact on their future. Will Brandy and Weston be able to save their marriage? What secrets will cause one of them to walk out in anger and hurt? They are each looking for forgiveness and a way to trust again.
This story is a written with such raw emotions and twists and turns that caught me off guard. There were times as I was reading, that I held my breath for fear of what may come next. I was so invested in the characters I was almost scared to turn the page to see if something more devastating was going to happen. The author has written such a great story that the characters become real to you and you find yourself cheering for some and hoping others would slowly go off into the sunset. This has been one of the best romantic novels I've read in awhile and I'm glad I stuck it out till the end. We all want to be loved, and sometimes we mess up only to regret what we had was not so bad after all. The bottom line is we want to be happy with the right person. This story will take you on a journey where four people will intersect into each other's lives and fight for their happiness and try to let go of bitterness and unforgiveness .
"True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be." "The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
I received a copy of this book from Librarything and Ravenswood Publishing for an honest review.
