I devoured this book in just one day. Incredibly written account of truth, brutal honesty and bravery. 5 stars!

I have never heard of Ms Melton before reading this book, and that may explain much about my review. Perhaps if I had read her previously I would give this one more than 3 stars ... or would have skipped reading it.
I really liked the first half of the book. Her insight into love, loss, hope, pain and self is something that spoke to me. I saw my marriage in this book. I saw my hopes in it too. I was impressed by her ability to take the lovely and loveless moments of life and put them into words which were so raw and real. But then the book became more of a lecture or a sermon and it lost me. I understand that she is a believer and that she attributes the repair of her marriage to God working through her husband and herself. But it seemed too simplistic. I would have liked the book so much better if she more fully examined the hardness of the pain, the grief, the difficulty of accepting the changes and finally the growth of the love and forgiveness. I wish there had been more depth to the exploration of the pain.
