This story feels like a ture-life novel instead of made-up fiction. The storyline begins with the main characters, Gwen and Rob, living and loving as a wonderfully married couple, anticipating the birth of their first child after several years of trying to conceive. Gwen, being a professional photographer, is working at home when her world falls apart. She tragically loses their son, Michael, and the ability to even try again. Consumed with grief, she is also soon faced with secrets from her husband's past where she learns of him having a son that he's never told her about. Follow their journey as they face all these twists and turns of decptions and learn to put their faith in their love for one another to heal and move forward. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters in this story. The author writes them so honestly that you feel like you could sit right down and talk with them. The story itself does turn out as expected, but there is enough twists involved to keep it flowing from page to page pretty quickly. The author did a wonderful job at making you feel the emotions involved along the way. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary fiction that includes genuine characters, story secrets, and overwhelming emotion. This is a must read! This book was kindly provided to me by it's wonderful author for my honest review.

The characters in this book were fantastic! They were believable, relatable, and I was able to easily connect and sympathize with each of them. The two main characters are Gwen and Rob; they start out as a happily married couple, but after a devastating miscarriage and Rob's shocking revelation their dream life is left in shambles. I felt so bad for Gwen. It's one thing to have a miscarriage after so many years of trying (and so late in the pregnancy too), but to be blindsided by a huge secret her husband had been keeping would be too much for anyone to deal with. She reacted exactly how I would assume someone would in that situation; she pretty much shuts down completely, mourning the son she'll never hold in her arms and slowly letting her marriage crumble. Even though Rob did a horrible thing by keeping the secret from Gwen, he had no idea it would reveal itself at the worst possible time when they already had so much to deal with. I felt bad for him too, because he didn't mean to hurt her and it's obvious how much he adored her and valued their marriage. When the story starts out, the narration is in 3rd person and switches back and forth between Gwen and Rob. Later on we also get a glimpse at another married couple, Deanna and Vincent, and their teenage son Brandon. I can't go into any detail about them, but let's just say they play a fairly big part in the story. There's also Justin Rappaport who was Gwen's close friend in college. It's obvious he has feelings for Gwen and sees her failing marriage as an opportunity to make his more. I thought it was really slimy of him to try to take advantage of the situation when Gwen had already been through so much. Romance Sizzle Or Fizzle: Ok, so this isn't really appropriate for this book, since Gwen and Rob are wondering the entire time if they will be able to salvage their marriage. I will say this though, even with all they were going through, it was obvious that they loved each other very much and if there was a way to make things right between them again they would find it. I wouldn't say the plot was especially unique; I know all of these issues have been in novels before. It didn't detract from my love for the book though because it was so well written. I already had the secrets and mysteries figured out early on, so there weren't a whole lot of shockers for me while reading; it didn't make me want to stop reading though and I really loved the ending. Overall this book was a really fantastic read, full of heartbreak, secrets, and it shows that love has the power to heal.
