Book description
A poignant and powerful story about how one woman’s best intentions lead to the worst of situations, and how 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.

My thoughts
One of my favorite authors has done it again. She had me hooked from the first page on another great book. Robyn does a good job of creating characters that you fall in love with and feel like you have known for ever. Also this story just seems to have meaning as it is a story that could happen to anyone.  This story actually takes you on a bit of a ride. You start out slow then it gets a little better as you then the end is great. A definite hit on my list.
