I won this one in a giveaway. I was intrigued by the description. "It took years of psychological upset and inner-strength for Courtney to overcome a personal tragedy, but she has finally found relative peace as a wife and mother.” The story is written in flashbacks. The romance junkie in me enjoyed the flashbacks the most with the sweet way Phillip helped Courtney learn to love and trust again after enduring a debilitating rape attack. I also enjoyed seeing how Courtney fought her inner demons. ...more

This is a very emotional book to read. It is fast paced and very engaging, yet it stirs all kinds of emotions inside. Have tissues when reading this one. I would be surprised if this is not a true story, Courtney struggles through so much and the painful memories and pressure seem so real, so tragically life like. Thinking of it gives you the chills. There is grief, pain and triumph in this story. It is well worth the read.

thank you so much for the opportunity to read such a wonderful book.

However, when she stumbles upon news that an old friend has died, her world is quickly turned upside-down. As painful and tainted memories force her to acknowledge a long-forgotten past, the debilitating pressure soon threatens e ...more

“The moment-when I could no longer face myself in the mirror-wasn't easily explained; nor was the oppressive misery I experienced once I finally became the person I was meant to be but then realized with terrific horror how much I still hated her.” 5 likes
“Staring over him in the dim light of a side lamp, my tired eyes traced along the path of faint, yet emerging, lines etched around his equally-tired eyes. They'd become a permanent reminder of his ever-smiling face, and I wished–even after all of these years together-that I could absorb some of his contentment.” 1 likes
