First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes the... really nasty divorce.
Kate Carter thought she married her soul mate. She thought she had her happily ever after. But seven years into Kate's marriage, she realizes that her husband Nick is not what she wanted. He's selfish, he's oblivious and he doesn't love her anymore.
Maybe she doesn't love him anymore either.
Divorce is the only option if either of them wants to find happiness.
Kate and Nick thought they knew what they wanted, but neither is prepared for the heartache that separating will bring them. The journey they embark on is not the freedom they wished for, but a painful look at the people they've become.
At the end of it, Kate has to decide if this is really the life she wants or if maybe there's a way to salvage her broken heart.
I just don't think I can put into words how this book made me feel. It drew me in with such a force, I was taken off guard. I could feel Kate's emotions as she tried to come to terms with her divorce. I could feel how devastated she was.
Nobody said marriage is easy. You have to be willing to fight for each other. Sometimes it takes some major events to make you realize just how much in love you are.
Throughout the entire book, I couldn't figure out how it was going to end. Was Kate going to finally let go of Nick and at least accept the divorce. Would she move on with some one else? Would she realize how much she really loved Nick and work it out with him. I'm sure everything she thought would be something going through a divorce would experience.
This book honestly made think about my own marriage and made me realize no matter how crazy my husband can drive me, I couldn't live without him.
This emotional book is a stand alone that I couldn't put down for long. Just be sure to have some Kleenex nearby, you are going to need them.

Elizabeth Carlson is living in the pits of hell- also known as grief.Her husband of eight years, the father of her four children and the love of her life, died from cancer. Grady’s prognosis was grim, even from the start, but Liz never gave up hope he would survive. How could she, when he was everything to her?
Six months later, she is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life and get the kids to school on time. Both seem impossible. Everything seems impossible these days.
When Ben Tyler moves in next door, she is drowning in sorrow and pain, her children are acting out, and the house is falling apart. She has no time for curious new friends or unwanted help, but Ben gives her both. And he doesn’t just want to help her with yard work or cleaning the gutters. Ben wants more from Liz. More than she’s capable of ever giving again.
As Liz mourns her dead husband and works her way through the five stages of grief, she finds there’s more of her heart to give than she thought possible. And as new love takes hold, she peels away the guilt and heartache, and discovers there’s more to life than death.
She was born and raised in Nebraska, and spent her college years traveling the world. She fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka, but came back home to marry her high school sweetheart. Now she spends her days raising four amazing kids. In the few spare moments she has to herself, she is either reading for hours on end or writing her own stories.
