David Sinclair has been in love with Molly ever since she walked into his life. The problem is, the Sinclair line is destined to only love one woman. At least, that is what he believes. When he gets Molly pregnant through one night of passion, he does the right thing and marries her.
After twenty-five years of being in his dead wife’s shadow, Molly demands a divorce. When David refuses, she has no other choice than try to make it work. She is in love with him and wants nothing more than for him to whisper those same words.
Can David rectify the sins of his past? Will he be able to move on and accept that Molly is the woman he loves? Or will her fail and finally know what loss truly means?
I read a review of this book and was intrigued, so I figured I would start this series at the beginning. I am really glad I did. I really liked this book. It shows two people working on a marriage of twenty-five years. One has just about given up hope, when the other realizes what an ass he’s been.
David begins to show Molly how much he loves her, once it’s just about too late. She can’t take it anymore. Living in David’s first wife’s shadow for twenty five years has almost killed her. She thought she could live without the love of her husband but realizes, it’s not fair to her. She wants to be loved too.
David’s reasons for treating his wife like this are preposterous. I can’t imagine. She’s either brave or stupid as hell. I couldn’t have put up with what she has.
The way the book flashes in and out of the past, it really shows how much the hero loves the heroine but was scared to tell her. I think the author did a very good job with this.
