Publisher's Summary

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.

Slow pace read

I will start off by saying, I love reading Carolyn Brown books, of course there is a but. This read was so slow, by the eighth chapter the book was still snoozing along. This book was not my cup of tea, if I wasn't listening to it at work, I don't think I would had finished it. I even tried to get into the narrator, but it appeared as if she was reading the book and ended each sentence with an abrupt ending, I not impressed.

Sweet story

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.

Okay, not great

I enjoyed the story itself. Nothing remarkable, definitely predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless. The narration almost did me in. The horribly exaggerated/fake southern accents were grating at best. If you can get past that, it's worthy of a listen when you're looking for a weekend read.

wow emotional rolling avalanche

it all starts with one rock, and the rest grow strength and follow. these courage women had the courage it took me almost 12 years to roll my rock down that hill. this book helped me realize it wasn't what I did wrong but the courage and strength it took me to roll. thank you so much for your strong characters. love and cried with them.

Horrible narration !!!

Carolyn Brown wrote a delightful stoey. But Brittany Presley RUINED it with the corny and very annoying attempt at a southern accent. As a southern woman myself, with a southern accent, I was deeply offended. So much so that I was unable to listen beyond the 7th chapter.
Be forewarned.

Abused modern day cinderella

Too predictable, too unrealistic, too many prince charmings. Unrealistic story for those who have suffered spousal abuse, woman or man.

Predictable

Saccharine in the extreme, a standard romance novel. The reader was good, capturing the different voices well.

lovely book, thought provoking

i loved this book, felt for all the characters within the first half hour of listening, it ended before i wanted it too and it has left me wanting to know more, all loose ends were tied up, but not closed so there could be another made. it is a very sensitive subject, and might not be everyone's cup of tea, but really shows how you can come out the other end. would highly recommend if you like a listen that tugs on your heart strings

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.
