The best part of this story is how uplifting it is. Although it starts rough, with a wife leaving her husband after finding out their marriage has been full of deceit, the story quickly turns into a positive story. The story of a woman who when faced with a rough road decides to pick herself up and make her life so much better. She has her days of grieving and beating herself up, but overall she understands that she is strong enough to overcome this. A huge part of her overcoming is the support of her new best friend Becky, who has a history of a failed marriage and can relate to what Rose is going through, and Rose's mother, who steps up with 100% support without ever doubting that Rose will succeed in moving past her failed marriage. Scott, Becky's brother, and Adam, Scott's best friend, are also huge supporters of Rose even though they did not know Rose before she moved in with Becky.
I have to say that Scott is probably my most favorite character in this book. Every book needs some hot and studly men. Not only did he step to the plate and help Rose in any way she needed but he was just there. There when she just needed someone to talk to. There when she just needs someone to sit with her. There when she needs someone to get her out of the house. Scott also knew when to step back and not be there.Read more ›
And when she discovers the extent of his deception, she is sick with fear about how she has missed the signs all these years.
Packed up and fleeing the house, she has no plan. Where is she going? How will she manage on her own?
It was easy to connect with Rose's panic and to worry a little about how she would fare. So when she serendipitously meets up with a friend from her gardening club, who offers her a place to stay until she figures things out, I felt relieved. Betsy has some issues left over from her marriage, too, and as we learn more, it is evident that both women are struggling to make better choices.
It took sheer guts for Rose to make this bold move...and because her "Frank habit" was long-standing, she was tempted to go back. More than once. Thinking she could change him...or he would change. The struggle to change was realistic, since nobody can learn new behaviors without a few stumbles.
In the aftermath, Rose's journey to building a new life felt real and like something that could actually happen. Her friends and her mother were supportive, and she slowly begins making better choices for her life. As she flounders in a new relationship, it was encouraging to see how she spotted the red flags sooner. Like in real life, stumbling, falling, and then changing.
Redesigning Rose was an engaging read, recommended for those who enjoy books about relationships and issues. 4.0 stars.
