Hope found her old high school crush on Facebook and enjoyed the flirting and butterflies. She started then to question the things she didn't like in her husband and marriage and ignored what could have been fixed. She took the leap and uprioted her life, children and family for her childhood sweetheart.
He was everything more in attention and love then her husband was. He wanted her and to make him a part of her life.
So she gave it all up for him. Did she do the right thing for herself, for her family, for love?

I was mesmerized by Holly's writing, how her words captivated me and held me hostage till I finished. I would constantly think about this book throughout the day when I wasn't reading it.
I contemplated the idea of my own "what if" while I was reading and by the end of the story I was all "Na, I'm good."
