**I was given a review copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**
So this happily married woman discovers her darling husband, whom she's been with since high school, has cheated. But wait, there's more...it was with a man!!! Shocking. I love that she wasn't at all phased by that fact. She didn't care one way or the other, he was intimate with someone other than her and that was a deal breaker.
Her friends told her that divorce is hard and she should try to work it out if they could. She really did try. But what we end up with is following Bethany through her grief, her hope, even her desperation as her marriage crumbles and she i s living alone for the first time in her life. She'll find she can count on people than she thought. And maybe, she'll come through this in one piece.
I thought this story was so interesting. I mean, it's another he cheated and here we go stories. But it starts out with her being so happy, and feeling so loved. I mean, it literally came out of left field for her. We see her memories. There was a passion from the beginning and a tenderness. She always felt loved and desired by this man. Even though they were so young, everyone thought they'd make it...especially them.
Deep characters that you may only get to know a little, but enjoyable anyway. It's entirely Caro's book, even though there is a moment it comes from his perspective in the beginning. It was a comforting story, very enjoyable.
