WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR HUSBAND SUDDENLY WANTED TO REWRITE THE RULES OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP?
I loved this book! It was one that I just could not put down. I very easily connected with Julia and where she was in life. She has a successful business and is married to a go-getter, Michael. There were able to escape West Virginia and the pain of having a father who has a gambling problem. All seems wonderful in their world from the outside looking in, but they are living two different lives. Julia has given up most of her dreams, including having a family, for Micheal and his business. Life just keeps moving around them until he suffers a sudden heart attack and dies for 4 minutes. Once revived, Micheal gives up everything he has – all of his millions – yet wants to rekindle his relationship with his wife. Julia is very upset about losing this life and begins to work out if she can survive on her own. Now, it seems that the prenuptial agreement they signed will save her. Michael begs her for just 3 weeks to try to understand his decision. Along the way, he tells her he is going to die again.
This is a very touching story about what is important in life and what we think is. I cried numerous times in the story. The story development is great. There is just enough mystery to make to you want to sit and read this book in one sitting. There is great character development – I felt as though I really knew these people and could feel where they were in life. Ms. Pekkanen take us on an amazing journey and inside look at marriage, heartbreak, and the healing power of love!
I highly recommend this book! I give it 5 stars – it quickly became one of my favorites this year.
