Barbara Joe Williams, author of Double Proposal
This lovely romance showcases the challenges faced by a strong professional woman who must fight against her husband's conditioned response to his mother who objects to the relationship. I enjoyed the portrayal of the close and supportive relationships within the respective families even as I sympathized with the heroine's difficult situation with her mother-in-law (that I fear is familiar to many wives). I was a little disturbed by the length of time that the resolution took despite the realism of the situation but I think that the author does a wonderful job of displaying the emotionalism inherent in the various conflicts that epitomize the issues that result from judgemental family members. This heartwarming story is a tribute to the power of faith and the importance of understanding underlying motivations before making judgements.

I had the privilege of editing this story which has been reworked and re-released and I thank the author for allowing me to learn more about honing her craft as we worked together.
On the outside Krys and Cameron seem to have the perfect life; they have two kids, wonderful house, and successful careers. In reality, Cameron's mother is a vicious woman who can't keep her nose out of his marriage. His mother continues to manipulate him by constantly dangling his ex-girlfriend in his face, and he always seems to take his mother's side. He claims that she's just a friend, and blames Krys for not understanding his position as a devoted son and friend.
Krys practices the turn the other cheek philosophy and her outrageous mother-in-law walks all over her head, knowing that Cameron won't have her back. He finally catches his mother in the act of being a bi-atch to Krys at a family get together. He tells his mother off and says he won't speak to her until she apologizes to Krys. Then he turns around and blames Krys because he's not speaking to his mother. Finally, Krys has enough and kicks Cameron out.
Everybody; Krys's mother, sister, brother and in-laws pressure Krys to put her pride aside and forgive Cameron because SHE created this situation and it's not fair to the children. It's her fault; she should just forgive him and not wait for him to apologize.
Cameron gets an apartment, every time Krys goes to pick her children up there's the ex-girlfriend. Cameron doesn't understand why Krys believes that he's back with his ex-girlfriend. Stupid Cameron never figures out that his mother and ex-girl were scheming to break up his marriage. The ex-girlfriend feels guilty and tells him about her and his mother's actions.
Finally, Cameron goes to confront his mother and tells her that he doesn't want to see her again. He finds out that his mother hates Krys so much because she doesn't come from a rich family. Cameron has a car accident and Krys takes him back. He sort of gives her a half-hearted apology and she forgives him and his witch of a mother, and its all water under the bridge.
Who would put up with seven years of this weak man treating his wife as if she's at fault for the turbulence in their marriage? Ugh, this book was frustrating. Krys wants her husband back so she has to be the bigger person. Cameron never goes through the angst of fighting to get his marriage back. Krys did all the compromising and that's why I hate this book.
