Wow – this book is really hard to explain without giving away to much.
This book ultimately revolves around four people. Emma and Jack; Helen and Sam.
Sam is desperately in love with Emma, but she ends up marrying one of his best friends, Jack.
Sam then ends up moving to get away from the pain of not being with Emma and runs into the controlling and manipulative women named Helen who he starts to date.
This story has so many ups and downs, and even if you are not a victim of abuse it is well worth a read. It really goes to show that domestic abuse doesn’t always *look* the way it is portrayed. The abuser can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Lastly, the ending to the book was ahhhhhh-mazing.
This book was at a solid 3, maybe 4 stars before I got to the last 1/4 of the book.
It is an ending to rival the ending of the Notebook. Totally different, but still just as much of a tearjerker.
I will definitely be suggesting this book to friends!
