Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built a family. From a distance, their lives look picture perfect. But after the girls leave home, Jack and Elizabeth quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job, Elizabeth puts her own needs aside to follow him across the country. Then tragedy turns Elizabeth’s world upside down. In the aftermath, she questions everything about her life—her choices, her marriage, even her long-forgotten dreams. In a daring move that shocks her husband, friends, and daughters, she lets go of the woman she has become—and reaches out for the woman she wants to be. ( )

This is one of those books that I would probably appreciate a lot more in ten years. It's the story of a marriage slowly falling apart at the seams and a woman who finds herself "passionless" and tired of waiting around for "her turn." Her husband was a promising NFL quarterback who blew out his knee and became addicted to pain-pills. Over the years he's worked his way up being a sports newscaster for different tv stations around the country. As a result she and her two kids have had to move houses time and again. Once they move into a beach cottage by Portland, Oregon he promises her they are done moving. And she's glad. She loves the view, the house. Their two daughters are in college on the east coast. Everything is going fine. Until her husband finally gets a big break and a huge new job in New York. Without consulting her. He's just so used to Birdie doing what he wants, that he never questions what SHE wants. Can their marriage weather this storm? Can she keep her dream home and rediscover her passions? Perfectly ok story. Ups and downs of a relationship. I think Kristin Hannah's newer stuff is a little more exciting. ( )

I was in the mood for a contemporary romance, so I went to the queen of romance hoping for a homerun. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed with this one.

I really enjoyed this story when it started, but the longer it went out, the longer it dragged out. I enjoyed learning about Elizabeth and Jack: how they met, their marriage, their current struggles. I liked seeing Jack as an ex-football star and trying to find himself. When he broke the story around college athletes and rape, I thought this was going to be amazing. However; it really did not focus on much besides the relationship between Jack and Elizabeth, and it did this over and over again. It dragged on way too long for what it was. I found myself ready for something else to happen or to capture my attention.

Jack was so selfish. I just never was routing for him. I was getting so mad with Elizabeth and wanted to scream at her. It just went back and forth with not being happy, but not making any changes or communicating about it. They never talked about their issues, just knew the both had concerns. It would have been fine if this happened once or twice, but it was the majority of the story. I feel like I could have read the first and last part, skipped the middle, and would not have missed a thing.

Yes, there were still things I enjoyed or I would not have finished it. But, I was forcing myself to finish it towards the end.

This does have triggers for rape and infidelity.

Overall, I just did not connect with this one like I have with other Kristin Hannah reads. ( )

Kinda heartbreaking at the beginning... I'll admit I didn't like Jack very much at the start. I think I remember reading this several years ago, but now that my kids are both older (one in HS, one on her own), this is much more relevant. Feel stuck in a rut? YOU have the power to change things. Reach for joy again, reach for the things that make life worth living. ( )
