After seven years of misery and abuse, it's all over - Hannah O'Malley is officially divorced. Hallelujah. It's like every Christmas in her life all rolled up into one glorious day. Not only does Hannah get to keep her grandmother's spacious old house, but she has full custody of her sparky five-year-old daughter. All Hannah has to do now is put the past behind her.
And now that she's free, she wants to make a difference. With the help of her warm, close-knit circle of friends - including her high school crush, Travis Wilson - Hannah begins turning her home into a safe house for other women who've endured the pain she's known. But even as life and laughter return to Hannah's home, she's haunted by the memory of her dangerously unstable ex. With a second chance at love on the horizon, Hannah must face down her past in order to let the sunshine back into her life.

I have to admit I enjoy every moment of it didn't want to put down their points it was sad but uplifting. Every chapter was fulfilling till the end
The author doesn't seem to realize that conflict is necessary for a story. The audience is unable to remain engaged if the only problem being resolved in the first chapter.
The voice acting is almost as bad as the writing. The accents are horrendous.
Classic cheesy romance, but definitely delivers on the heartwarming and hope giving element. I would recommend this if you're looking for a book that is easy to follow and enjoyable.
The Texas accents were nearly intollerable with the exaggerated twang and drawl. I've lived in nearly every corner of Texas and have never encountered this ridiculousness. The story itself was really weak, predictable and hallmark style. I'm disappointed in myself for picking it.
Live life like a kid in a candy store!
Interesting story. Some of the line felt like a strech. Nice 'takes a village' take on family.
I loved the story of the strong women getting out of abusive situations. I am not a fan of over cutifying children, and poor little Sofie was more of a pet than a child. The same was true of the older members of the family, overly cute, not characters in the main story. Also, it sounded like the narrator was holding her tongue flat rather than speaking with a Texas accent, someone Northerners confuse with a Southern drawl.
"What a great book"
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read about friendship, the community spirit courage and of course love.
This book was not only well written as can be expected from this author but it was well researched.
I could relate to the main characters story n I hope it would give strength, hope n courage to people going through something similar
I hope it will also give other readers the drive to talk to our girls about the signs to look out for because there are a lot of them.
