So back to the book it's called Once and Future Wife. It drew me in by the first chapter. I didn't read the first book in the series but I felt I didn't lose anything by not reading it because this one kind of recaps what happened. This isn't your typical romance book though, it deals with mental illness called bipolar and the struggles dealing with it and how it can tear a family apart. This was such a emotional book!
My synopsis of the book:
Jennie is a mom who went years without being diagnosed with a mental illness. Her illness made her run from her husband and two young daughters who she loved so much. Me being a Psychology major I was a little more critical and was diagnosing her throughout the book. Bipolar disorder is a horrible disease that torments its victims and David did a really good job accurately displaying this disease in Jennie. I was surprised! I fell in love with Jennie and I wanted to help her throughout the story. She had a tough life but she loved her family more than anything else.
Thomas suffered a lot when Jennie left him with two young daughters years earlier without a reason why. It took him years to get over her, well move on from her. Then to have tragedy strike again and take his current wife. I felt his pain and suffering. Left with 4 grown daughters and a newborn he had to believe in love, fate and learn to forgive. Jennie and Thomas have a roller coaster love story but it is one you don't want to miss. I love how true love and communication conquers all. Such a emotional book but I loved it! I definitely recommend it! Get it today at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and more!
Thomas has moved on with his life, after suffering so much from being abandoned by Jennie and was left to take care of two small children. He had given upon Jennie returning and after several years has found happiness with Emma. However, this happiness was to be destroyed when tragedy struck and Thomas and his children lost Emma. Thomas was left to care for their newborn on his own.
Jennie has gotten her life back on track after recognizing that she had bipolar disorder. She has been reunited with her children and had regular visits with them. She has a great job and enjoying life like a normal person. One thing, however, has not changed and that was her feelings for Thomas. As such when she heard that Emma was killed, she began to wonder if there was a chance for Thomas and her to rekindle what they once had. (This is not to say she was not affected by the death of Emma. They had moved past their and became friends.) Thomas has come to realise that Jennie was not the same woman who had abandoned her family years ago. He has started to rely heavily on her for help with the newborn. As a result, they grew closer. Just when things seem to be going great between them, Thomas’ step-daughter Tasha decided that she would destroy Jennie. Will she succeed in her diabolical plan?
Once and Future Wife which I found inspiring and emotional, is a story of love, acceptance, second chances and forgiveness. Once again David Burnett has transported me into a world where I got a first-hand look at the effects of mental illness. He demonstrated the misunderstanding that surrounds it and the daily struggles that sufferers of the disorder face. He also demonstrated the effect it has on their loved ones.
If you are looking for a story that will engage you and keep you glued to the pages, then Once and Future Wife would be a good choice.
