Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • After her marriage ends, one woman’s struggle to pick up the pieces finally leads to a new beginning but is the past truly behind her? #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber explores the powerful intersections of love and family in this poignant novel.

It’s been nearly six years since Julia Jones had her heart broken. After her husband became involved with another woman, she did everything she could to save their marriage, to no avail. The couple’s two daughters continue to stand by Julia in the wake of their father’s behavior—and they’ve had a tough time getting along with the other woman who’s become their stepmother. Distraught after selling the family home, Julia moves into a condominium complex that offers the warmth and charm of a fresh start. Now, having settled into her new community and sold her successful interior design business, she’s embraced a fulfilling new life, one that doesn’t seem to need a man in it. Her beloved father’s trusty saying is ringing truer than ever: It’s better this way.

But when Julia meets a handsome new resident in the building’s exercise room, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Heath Johnson is a welcome change from the men she’s encountered on the occasional—mostly disastrous—dates her sister has eagerly planned for her over the years. As she and Heath, a divorcé himself, begin to grow close, their friendship blossoms into an unexpected love. However, they soon realize that combining families proves to be a challenge, even though their four children are adults.

When a dramatic revelation threatens the happiness they’ve found, Julia and Heath must reconcile their love for their children with their love for each other. If they can’t, their bright future together may be nothing but a dream.

    I love how this book starts out with a prologue from Julia’s past explaining her own feelings and her family’s dynamics surrounding her divorce. The book then starts with the first chapter 6 years later. This creates a hopeful and more upbeat story of how a late in life divorce can bring heartache , but can also bring a new life full of love and second chances. I love the title “It’s Better This Way”, it was the theme of the book where Julia and her adult girls have to pick up the pieces from the shock of an affair her husband had and asked for a divorce. The girls are heartbroken and angry with their Dad and his poor choices he made with his affair, plus the hurt he caused their mother. Will they all continue to let the hurt rule their lives or will they be able to eventually accept his choices and move forward with their own lives? This book will having you turning the pages to find out. Be sure to add this book to your TBR list!
