My rating: 3 1/2 of 5 stars
A very emotional look at a marriage that's in trouble unbeknownst to the husband, who only realizes it after his wife is in a serious accident while in the process of leaving him. With his eyes opened to the fact that his wife was not happy, he struggles to be there for his wife while working through the feelings of guilt and betrayal.
Although it is well written and has a happy ending, I had a hard time getting through the first part of the book because of the way that Josiah is operating off an assumption that's not true. It was just frustrating to me for some reason. I did appreciate, however, the fact that Josiah had some major character growth through the story because of the circumstances. And I loved the secondary characters like his in-laws (who were awesome), the waiting room lady, and the second doctor who helped him not give up.
All in all, a good book with themes of forgiveness, hope, and learning to have a faith in God that will see you through.
