Curtis is determined to divorce Charlotte after her double infidelity last year, but Charlotte has other plans. She is not going to give up on her family without a fight, and boy is she in for a fight! No matter what she does, nothing seems to be good enough. Curtis is treating her like a stranger in their home, Matthew is still hurt and barely speaks to her and Curtina is 4 so she loves Charlotte and right now that is what is keeping her afloat but she needs more. Curtis is hurt and tired of the back and forth between him and Charlotte and has began talking with a female member of the church. She is nice, listens to him and doesn't judge him but what Curtis doesn't know is that just most women, she is trying to figure out how to be the next Mrs. Curtis Black. Will there ever NOT be problems for the Black family?!?!? You will just have to read and find out!
I love Kimberla writing style and the way she keeps us coming back for more. Her storylines are strong and if you know anything about the way Roby writes you know if something small happens in this book, it will be HUGE in the next one! Looking forward to the next installment! Keep up the great work, you never disappoint me!
I admit there are some good lessons in the book; but it almost felt like it should have been a Christian novel, and like the author was trying to preach to her audience. There is nothing wrong with Christian novels; but at least if you know that's what it is you can approach the book in a different way.
I would only recommend this book to a Christian couple contemplating divorce, or maybe to a pastor and his wife.
