My unexpected hope
I absolutely hated this book. They were married way too young and their life was filled with his drug and alcohol abuse. She stood by him through it all but he favored the addiction. When she decides to move on, he comes back. I didn’t like the chemistry of their relationship. I wanted her to move on without him. I was hoping he would stay clean and they would remain friends but realize they weren’t good for each other. He seemed like he always needed a crutch and she always wanted to fix things...be someone’s savior. That is a bad combo. He had years with the addiction but only a few months of being clean after trying multiple times. Why put them back together and have friends around who encouraged it? If he had physically abused her would it had been the same encouragement? This was an abusive relationship. I was really surprised at Katie for supporting the relationship.
