Beth and Cath are leaving their husbands. This is a story about two very different women. One is wealthy and having an affair with a man who gives her the kind of love that her cold, detached husband does not. One is living hand to mouth, suffering at the hands of a violent partner who would rather see her dead than leave him. You may think you know these women already and how their lives will unfold. Beth will live happily ever after with her little girl and her soulmate. Cath will go back to her abusive husband. And these two women will never cross paths. But you will be wrong.
I honestly did really enjoy this book. I didn’t read it as fast as I’d hoped but that’s another story. I enjoyed the development of the 2 characters and the way the story was told in two different times. I would have liked to see a bit more of Cath’s story as I felt that the focus was on Beth. It would have been nice to see more of Cath’s relationship through the years. It also would have been good to see more of the early years of Beth’s relationship. The story was good though a and I really enjoyed it as a whole.
