When your husband dies of a heart attack in another woman’s bed—and then posthumously files for divorce—you’ve got two choices: crumble in despair or set off to find a new life. Abbie Torrington does both! Will the love of family and friends be enough to keep her strong in the days ahead?

My Review

This is an amazing book about extreme sorrow, but also extreme hope.  By the 5th chapter Abigail has gone through a wide array of emotions, she feels betrayed and violated. With many books of this nature it can be easy for the characters to become wallowing in self-pity. The author gave a glimpse of Abbie’s sorrow without letting her character get tiresome to the reader.

Sharon K. Souza gives us the feel of Abigail’s grief, anger and disbelief all in a very short amount of time, and that takes amazing skill. Lying on Sunday made me laugh and cry with a torrent of conficting emotions running through me in the meantime. This book is very well written and is now a favorite fiction book of mine!
