To me this story was a lesson in what happens when you don’t communicate in your relationships, and the effects that has on the people who surround you. I think it will make you re-think the way you make choices and ,as well as help you to understand that forgiving yourself, is sometimes more important than forgiving the person(s) who wronged you.
The book starts with Sadie in labor at the hospital, refusing to allow the nurses to contact her husband.
Sadie suspects her husband, Michael, of cheating, and is ready to leave and raise their son and newborn daughter on her own. When she learns that, the secret he’s been keeping IS another woman, just not in the way that she has assumed.
At First, she agrees to try to accept their new situation as long as it’s on HER terms. Michael, wanting to atone for his responsibility in the situation, realizes that the only way to keep Sadie and their two kids in his life is to do what she says.
When the situation becomes too much to handle, both have some major decisions to make, Sadie feels she has to chose her children above all else, and Michael, well for Michael there’s never been a choice, it’s always been Sadie. So feeling as if it’s the only way to keep her, he does what’s asked of him, and It just might destroy them both.
Without giving anything away, I can tell you that Sadie is a control freak; she wants to be the one making the decisions. However, one of those decisions will change not only her life and the life of her children, but others as well.
This book touches on a few very serious subjects but doesn’t go into a lot of detail on them, just enough so that you could get a handle on what the characters are feeling in the moment. In a way it was refreshing, however at points I felt like I missed something.
I think that this book had a great plot, characters that you could relate to easily, and an even bigger message, that usually the biggest obstacles we have are ourselves. It’s only when we get out of our own way, that we will ever truly have a chance at happiness.
It's definitely one to check out! :) YAY for Rani L. Rhyes!!
