I really enjoyed the synopsis. But I could not finish this book. i really tried . the narrator's Vocal Fry (it's a real term. Look it up) grinded on my ears and my nerves. She purref and growled thru the entire book. I didnt get past tge discovery of the daughter before I threw in the towel. i love stores with dogs in them. But I just can't.
This story was about real life issues and how a new perspective will change ones heart in the blink of an eye. I learned something from every character and the ending left me smiling the rest of the day. Highly recommend it!
The truth about what what the main character meant to her husband.
Inflection of emotion
Such a great book! I was very surprised. I would sit in my car after getting home just to finish chapters.
