She no longer knows who she is or what she wants. He blames himself for her pain. Is their marriage strong enough to survive their greatest hurt?
Christy Thomas has built her entire life around the dream of being a mother and raising a family with her high school sweetheart, Mark. After years of infertility, doctors, treatments and heartbreaking disappointments, that dream seems further away than ever before.
All Christy’s ever wanted is to be a mother. Without that she doesn’t know who she is anymore or what she wants from life.
Mark loves his wife unconditionally but can’t bear knowing that he failed to give her the family she so desperately wants.
At the very time when they should be coming together, their pain is pulling them apart. Is this challenge more than their marriage can withstand? Or will they be able to see past their individual hurts and come together again to have their own second chance at love—together.

A happy ending!
I am leaving an honest review of this book that I received an advanced copy of.
I opened this book first thing Monday morning before getting out of bed and I was SOOOOO thankful that it was the first day of summer break!!! I could not put this book down. I don’t believe in giving away any details of the book, but all I can say is buckle up and prepare for the roller coaster ride of emotions!!!
I worried about how dark the book was going to get but of course I only read those books that end with a happily ever after- this book did not disappoint!
This is an achingly sweet story about disappointment, heartbreak and renewal. I enjoy this author. A really great vacation read. The second book in this new series and am looking forward to the next. There is romance, dysfunction, loss and a sweet ending. Good read.
I went into this book nervous I wouldn't be able to finish since I had a journey similar to Christy's. Books like can sometimes amplify your worst fears because the fiction is so close to reality. Infertility can be such a delicate subject but this book treated it with sensitivity, dignity, and respect.
I love books about the life after the traditional HEA. This story showed that marriage can be hard work that comes with ups and downs and it requires a strong commitment to keep it going. Even though Christy and Mark have been together since 8th grade, they still have to put a lot into salvaging their relationship after having one of their dreams dashed. The only word I can think of that does this book any justice is perfection, absolute perfection. It had me laughing and crying and every emotion in between. This series is fantastic and I can't wait to see what's in store for this group of friends.
