I love this novel. I ended crying when I read it… I want to be Mattie. I adore her strength, when she faces her husband affair and her illness. How she lived through it all.
Here's the summary :
Behind the shiny facade of her seemingly idyllic life in Chicago, Mattie Hart feels as if she is falling apart. After sixteen years of marriage and one beautiful teenage daughter, Mattie has discovered that her husband, Jake, a high-profile defense attorney, is ensconced in yet another love affair. It is only after Jake finally confesses his infidelity and leaves to live with his girlfriend that a far greater crisis descends upon the embattled Hart family and Mattie receives some devastating news that will alter all their lives.
