Lisa Montgomery always thought she was a good wife. She loved her daughter and her husband, yet felt ridiculed at times making her strive to be more perfect in hopes things might change. When her husband becomes sick with cancer, she stands by his side until his death, never knowing the secret he held.
Terry is a retired fire fighter. He helps Lisa see life in a whole new direction, as can occur no matter what has happened. He helps her along a journey of self-discovery by loving her as she is.
Lisa’s life is unraveling from the secret her husband kept. She feels everything she had was a lie, and when she has nothing and her relationship with her daughter is strained, another threat enters her life -- a co-worker who will not take no for an answer. He is determined to have Lisa and destroy what happiness she has found.
Let me start by saying if I could give more than five cups I would give 10 or more. Ms. Hill has written Lisa’s story so well that I could barely set the book down to wipe away my tears. Lisa’s journey will have you feeling all she felt. To go from her grief to self discovery to empathy is a truly amazing ride. Each character has a role that plays an enormous part in the story, none less important than another. If you do not add this book to your collection, you will have missed a truly amazing read.
