This book is about a couple struggling to conceive which negatively affects their marriage. The husbands cheats on his wife with one of his students who happens to work at the coffee shop his wife frequently visits. The wife is the student’s favorite customer and soon turns into her closest friend and confidant when she finds out she is pregnant.
Georgiana Daniels wrote this book involving so many conflicting feelings which really helped me to feel drawn to almost all the characters and empathize with them. Anyone who has read at least one of my blog posts reviewing books knows that characters are very important to me. Their characteristics and development make or break the story for me. This story was a hit because the author included so many perspectives within one book and I was able to relate, argue and cry with various characters in the story. The author didn’t make the characters overly annoying but none of them are portrayed as perfect which makes them more realistic.
This novel was especially suspenseful because the decisions of each character were not set in stone. Readers have no way of knowing how each character would come to their final decision because their situations were so difficult to deal with and there was clearly no right or wrong way of dealing with the situation without consequences.
Have you ever read a book that made you feel heartache? This book was emotionally painful for me because I was so sad that the wife’s husband would cheat on her. It was not easy to read, but the ending was such a great resolution to most of the characters’ developments throughout the plot. It is obvious that this not an ending for the characters though, which makes it the perfect beginning for a series.
I would recommend this book to everyone. First of all, it’s a great read. It makes the reader think: “what would I do in this situation?”. It also has so many points for people to discuss with each other. I give this book a 5 out of 5.
