About the book: One red eye flight and ten years of marriage later, Carly Bishop had what she considered a practically perfect life. Her journalist husband and her two adorable children were everything to her. But soon she would find out that her dream life didn't fall in line with her husband's expectations.
Left alone to sort out the pieces of her crumbling life, Carly finds strength in her children and her growing relationship with her in-laws. Most importantly, she finds her greatest strength as she builds a friendship with herself.
This is a beautiful story of one woman's strength and determination as she finds the will to move forward and be happy while the life she had grown to love crumbles around her. It is a story of a man who has lost his way and may lose it all if he can't find his way back. The Girl in Seat 24B is a story of love and forgiveness.
My review: I really enjoyed this book. It's a love story, but it's a different kind from the ones that you are used to. I liked that! This book is about Carly and her husband, Michael. They've been married for ten years, but all of a sudden things between them have changed. Michael doesn't seem to want to be with Carly or their two children any more and despite her pleas for him to stay, he moves out, leaving Carly unsure if he would ever come back into their lives so they could be a whole family again.
The way Michael treated Carly made me sad, but I loved that she was able to find her inner strength and stop waiting for him to come back and simply move on for her and for her children. She was able to turn what was not a great relationship with her in-laws into one that she and her children could cherish for a lifetime. Carly really is an amazingly well-done character. I was able to put myself into her shoes so easily.
This book is great, from start to finish. You won't want to put it down!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
