Her three-year-old, Caleb, is one of the few bright spots in her life and she fights being over-protective of him fearing he will be taken from her, too. Her cheerleader sister-in-law, Amanda, encourages her to face reality and also give Ian a chance as he seeks a relationship with Robin.
Robin is a fighter and change doesn't come easily to her, so much so that after chapter after chapter of walls being built up about selling and new relationships, the reader may say "All right, already! We all know how this is going to end. Let's just get on with it!" I'll admit I found the book longer than necessary. Additionally, I felt the writer could have come up with a more believable ending. Ian wades into a pond and finds her wedding ring which she had tossed there in total frustration. Really? Finding a ring is one thing, but in the bottom of a pond?
Overall, I would give the book two and a half stars out of five. I tend to like my fiction a little more believable, but that would be non-fiction, wouldn't it??
