Edie had spent her whole life planning her future, imagining her husband, her kids, and even which minivan she’d drive. Lucky for her, she didn’t have to wait long, marrying her high school sweetheart right after graduation.

All of Edie’s dreams had come true, until they were no longer her dreams. Unable to deal with the lingering depression caused by having children, she left her whole life behind, walking away from the one thing she’d always wanted.

Donovan Leery loved his wife with everything he had and could never imagine life without her. Until he came home from work one day and found a letter from Edie, explaining she needed a break. Not only leaving him to live his life without her, but alone to raise their three small children.

But what happens when Edie is ready to come home? When she’s ready to fight for it all back? She knew it wouldn’t be easy. But she didn’t care. After spending years getting her life back together, she was ready to fight for her family. And a fight is what Donovan would give her.

She’d fight to make up for her Biggest Mistake.

WOW!!! this book is so damn good. I couldn’t put this book down. I saw this book on my goodreads feed and i immediately read the blurb and i knew i had to start this.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book like this. i spent 90% crying my eyes out. The story is new, it talks about things you don’t normally read about.

“I have only ever had eyes for you. i didn’t choose to sit next to you in science class because there were no other seats… I chose that seat because it was next to you. from that day forward, thats the only place i ever wanted to be- next to you.”

Edie is a woman learning and going through things in her life. She acts like everything is ok but deep inside she’s lonely, emotional, and very lost. Edie makes a decision of leaving everything and everyone behind. She leaves people that really need her but she’s clearly not thinking straight and decides that her families better without her. Leaving for Edie means her family will be better without her.. but realizing she will never be the same person, and realizing her family is everything her.. Edie sets out to fix herself and fix her biggest Mistake.

“I want you to have never left me.”

Donnie… my Gawd i absolutely love this man. He is what i want in my husband. of course as any other man he has some things that he needs to work through. I FLOVE Donnie. He became everything for his kids while his wife left them. Even though he was confused, hurt, and heartbroken… this man became what needed to be done for his kids. This man made feel his pain… his anguish, he made me feel his heart breaking. I’m even crying writing this review.

 

Theres always hope in those you love. This book made ugly cry, made me laugh, made me want to wrap my arms around both of this characters. Even though Edie leave her family… you end up feeling for her.. i love the fact she wasn’t in denial of what she did. she knew she messed up big time. I absolutely recommend this book.

“You destroy me, Edie. You’re still destroying me.”

if you are looking for a book full of amazing characters and a story of hope and self awareness. This book is it.

Just know Donnie is MINE.
