David and Emma have been together for many years. They had a happy life. With ups and downs like all marriages, but theirs have reached the end of the road. They are in the process of getting a divorce and the only thing stopping them now is the "seascape". A painting they bought while in their honeymoon. More than monetary value, the sentimental value of it is invaluable.
They soon find out Masters, the creator of "seascape" made two of them before his hand was crushed. So the solution to their predicament is, to go on a road trip to an auction where the other seascape is being auctioned off. In this road trip is where we really get to know them. I love their interactions!! From the beginning of the book you can tell they still had feelings for each other. And when you find out what happened to them that ultimately had them filing for divorce, your heart will break. And then you pray there is a way for them to overcome the past and stay together.
This is one of those books you can't say much about without giving spoilers. It's short but at the same time full of heart. The writing is incredible. And the characters are relatable and feel real. The author has a way with words that grabs your attention and doesn't let go. Add to that the amazing storytelling and you have a WINNER!! Do yourself a favor and get a copy of this emotion filled story. :)
Where do I start with this book? It was a quick read, and has left me in a slight book coma since finishing it. We start with David and Emma trying to come to terms with who gets the last piece in their devastating marriage - a Masters Seascape. When they find out there is another Seascape painted by Masters before his hand was smashed, they set out on a journey to bring it home resulting in them both having a piece of what was once a happy marriage.
When they encounter personal problems, marital memories, and a slight chance of resurrecting their marriage, it is then that David, and Emma realize they could be making the biggest mistake of their life. Their interaction during this time of finding the Seascape they want to bring home there is a lot of feelings that are brought up, and discussed that only seem to make it harder on both David, and Emma. Where did they go wrong? What happened that made them resent each other this much?
When you find out what the downfall of their marriage was, you will feel their pain, and resentment that eventually pulls them apart from one another. Emma feels there is no going back to what once was, while David feels that there is a possibility of them getting back together, and where they once had been. Can a drive to the long awaited Masters Seascape save them? Will it only cause more animosity between them? Or are they doing the right thing by ending their marriage with this final road trip?
I love that Donna Brown made the journey to the Seascape masterpiece a journey to both David, and Emma finding themselves, and each other. I would completely rate this book a strong 5 Bars had there been more to the book. I felt like this was more of a novella than anything, but there were still a few questions I had once the book had finished. There are so many feelings in this book that it is a hard book to put down once you start reading it.
There were also many obstacles David, and Emma had to get around throughout the book. I liked that while there was a main problem between David, and Emma there was also problems between them, and the other characters. Playing House is a well-written, fun, emotional read that will have you asking for more when you end the journey with David, and Emma.
Thank you, Donna Brown, for allowing me to review Playing House!
The night at the hotel when they made love, bringing up memories of before the incident and realizing that they both need each other and the love that they had never left. Just a beautiful read.
