Two years ago, Billie Tarrow’s husband left her for another woman. Shamed and divorced, Billie retreated to her family home in Port Townsend, far from her old life in New York. After a near-death encounter, Billie decides to return to the city that took everything from her.
But sometimes in the midst of heartache, hope suffocates the pain.
Satcher Gable has carried a torch for Billie for ten years. When she suddenly returns to New York a single woman, he can’t believe his good fortune. But convincing her to walk away from her heartache is proving more difficult than Satcher anticipated. A changed woman, Billie’s only goal is revenge.
Tarryn Fisher has a way with words that always cut me deep and leave my soul bleeding. She writes stories that elicit emotions that I didn’t expect to feel from reading a book. This book is no different.
Yet, while it does end with a happily ever after it still left me raw. I felt myself being confused more times than I can count. Anxious even.
Billie has spent the last 2 years of her life trying to become a new woman after her husband cheated. Divorce threw her into a tail spin and now she is ready to move back to New York and with a vengeance.
Adultery is a sour taste for me from personal experience. I was nervous going into this book and I definitely understand why I was. But this book was great, honestly I loved it! Billie is heartbroken, and trying to navigate through life using her heart.
I’m a firm believe the heart will lead us astray if we aren’t careful. We always want what our heart wants and sometimes that isn’t what is best for us. Billie does that through this story. She loved her ex-husband deeply and never got the closure she needed.
Satcher. I loved him! I did, and while some of his choices I didn’t understand, he still made my heart swoon. He was caring, and loving.
Tarryn has written a book with heartache, and of a woman who spirals out of control before she can figure out who she is. Holding onto the past can hinder the future and we see that in this story.
There were some gaps in the story but I wouldn’t say that they take away from the plot. I love how REAL Tarryn Fisher is with her words, how she doesn’t hold back. I felt so much from this book and am so happy that I dove in head first.
Your words mean something Tarryn Fisher, you write stories with such beautifully broken women that we can all relate to, and in reading your stories I know me personally, I always discover another small sliver of who I am through your words. Thank you!
