What would you do if your husband slept with another woman?
Colm strolled into my life fifteen years ago. If there’s ever such a thing as love at first sight, that was it for us both.
A few weeks later we married, celebrating with those who cared, ignoring the raised eyebrows of the cynics.
We knew better. This was going to be forever. The dream come true. The happy ever after.
Until it wasn’t.
Because a couple of months ago everything changed. We discovered a devastating truth, one that blew away our future and forced us to revisit our past, to test the bonds that were perhaps more fragile than they seemed.
So now I ask you again, what would you do if your husband slept with another woman?
Because this is what I did.
And this is the Story of Our Life…
This book grabbed my attention from the very beginning just at the mention of Grey’s Anatomy (my favourite tv show), Shari Low must be a fan also.
There were quite a few characters in this book but they were all well written, I had no trouble remembering who was who.
I didn’t like Shauna’s parents at all, they were extremely stuck up and looked down on their own daughter , Shauna was lovely, she had such a kind nature, always saw the good in everyone apart from her parents but they were not worthy.
Colm was very much like Shauna except he was more laid back and didn’t fret about things.
Rosie seemed like one of those people that had to always be in a relationship, she always seemed to have a different boyfriend, I would have liked her to settle down.
Lulu and Dan drove me crazy at times , they always bickered mostly due to Lulu and her ways.
I enjoyed how the story was told by both of Shauna and Colm’s perspectives, this gave more of an insight to the story. Also I think it helped that the story went back to the past with every other chapter, this answered a lot of questions.
There were plenty of shocking revelations in this story that made my jaw drop.
This story shows that relationships are like roller coasters, plenty of ups and downs, Shauna and Colm were a good example of this, they had so many obstacles thrown at them but in the end they always loved each other.
A tear-jerking, heart-warming, jaw-dropping read that has made me realise that I need to focus on what is important in life and live each day as it comes.
