    Powerful

    This is a book that I could not put down. A powerful story of two lost souls, both going through divorces that have formed a friendship that develops into so much more. An accidental meeting, but they each find strength through each other. My heart just broke for Lauren, the emotional abuse that she took for so many years because she wanted her daughters not to suffer from a broken marriage. Everything was picture perfect on the outside but you don't realize what goes on behind the closed doors. Loved Beau, a strong man willing to raise his step sons on his own. He too tried to make his marriage work for his sons but finally decided enough was enough. This book is so powerful, and it can be anyone in our lives! I highly recommend.

    This couple could be any of us

    This book is about choices. Marital choices. Parental choices. Lauren has been in her marriage for 24 years. Surviving. She's the defacto errand girl, parent, and hostess for her surgeon husband. Wanting to make sure her daughters have the funds for their education, she waits and plans her escape, finally filing for divorce when her youngest daughter graduates college. Her life, her choice Beau has been in his marriage for many years as well. Also, surviving. He's been the step-dad to his wife's children. Raising them when their mother wouldn't. He's a great guy, loves his kids, and wants the best for them. After his wife 'needs a break' and moves out, he follows through with filing for divorce. His life, his choice. They're both fed up with the subtle and not so subtle jabs that keep coming from their spouses. They know change is coming and that's also their choice. Ms. Carr weaves these two strangers together in a most convincing way. They're not cheating on their spouses, but it might be perceived that way. These two battered souls need to finally make a choice that works from them. Making them the victors, rather than the conquered. The compilation of secondary characters adds so much to the book and allows the reader to realize why Lauren and Beau are who they are, and why they do what they do. I enjoyed this read. It's much darker than many of her other works, but very powerful. This could be anyone. This IS anyone who has had a messy divorce.

    The view from Alameda Island

    The story was an enjoyable read. there wasn't a climactic ending. It was almost like reading a diary of two similar families going through similar situations with slight differences. Neither dramatic nor uncomfortable. Glad to have this in my library, not sure how often I would read it though. Not a nailbiter I was able to put this down anytime.

    Loved it

    What a great story! It is so easy to get lost in Robyn's book. Thank you for allowing me to escape the real world, my not so wonderful life for a few hours.

    Modern day drama

    I throughly enjoyed this book. Good story about blended families and fallout of abuse. There is not a book that Robyn Carr writes that I have not enjoyed.
