This was very emotional story that I felt so bad for Brianna and what she had to go through. But in the end she was made stronger by standing up for herself and learning to live on her own.
The author has done a great job with pulling you into the life of Brianna and her children and we witness how her relationship became nothing but abuse from her husband, the one she loves and has always wanted to be with forever. When she has finally had enough she ends up leaving him on his birthday (which I thought was a great idea, it would have been something I would have done). We read as Brianna is still in love with her husband but she takes a stand to be on her own, she walks with two kids in tow to find herself a job on a daily basis. she doesn't ask for hand outs. She learns to be an independent woman with two children.
Then she meets a new guy which to me it felt rushed, and that is probably because there wasn't much of a timeline per se. We watch as she wants to be with this new guy in her life but her ex-husband has scarred her that she is afraid and the question is will that cause her to be alone?
Even though the book seems like it would be sad (which in some parts it is) it is uplifting in a way that at the end there is that light at the end of the tunnel. And Brianna finally has happiness for her and her children.
