The Dear Wife

dear wifeHere’s a book (or series) that everyone should read. Seriously. It’s amazing and I can’t say enough good about this book. It delves into a deep, hard subject–pornography and how it tears apart a marriage. Yet, it’s one of the best romances I’ve ever read. That’s talent!

The Dear Wife is the last in the More Than A Wife series by Jennifer Peel. It was a beautifully told tale of true love and what it takes to hold onto that precious gift. Avery and James have been side characters in the other 2 books, but this is their story. We’ve known they lost their ten-year-old daughter four years ago, and knew something was up between this wonderful couple…but we never knew what their issue was.

The poop hits the fan in this book though when Avery discovers texts on her husband’s phone to the bookkeeper at his business—intimate texts that should be to her, not another woman. She’s devastated, but determines not to keep her silence any longer about his pornography problem that has led to this ultimate betrayal.

They separate while she tries to find herself again, and James spirals into drinking and self-destruction. She loves the man she married, but doesn’t know where he’s gone. This tragically heartbreaking love story was a skillfully woven tale of betrayal, deepest love, hard work and sacrifice to become one again and earn trust back when it’s been shattered. I couldn’t put the book down once I started. I loved these characters so much and am in awe of what this author created…a masterpiece of the heart.

Did you have a great weekend? I just returned from a fabulous trip to Monterrey bay area in California. It was fantastic. First time to Northern CA, and I’m now a super-fan. 🙂 Saw some redwoods (had one even fall down about a minute up the trail from us–whew–that was slightly terrifying), saw sea lions, otters, and magnificent ocean and cypress trees. I’m in love with that rocky coastline. Hope your weekend was awesome as well.
