Synopsis

Caroline Harrison has had enough. After eight long years in an unhappy marriage, she’s ready to throw in the towel. Her workaholic husband, Bentley, is done too—choosing his career over his wife. They’ve met with their lawyers and only need to get through the holidays until their divorce is finalized.

Bentley isn’t ready to tell his family about the divorce, so he asks Caroline to spend one more Christmas at his mom’s under the ruse they are still happily married. Together, they set out on a seven hour car ride in the middle of the Canadian Caribou to put on one last happy show. What could be an opportunity to rekindle their love and spend quality time together turns out to be a road trip from hell.

When a surprise snow storm catches them off guard, Bentley and Caroline find themselves in an accident without any possibility of help in their near future. At one point, their love was all they needed to survive. But now, when all they have is each other against the frigid winter storm, will they find the love they lost before it’s too late? Or will this be the end…in more ways than one for Mr. and Mrs. Harrison?

The road back to us may be a turbulent path, but in the end, it’s worth the chaos because it leads back home.

 

 

Review

I received a copy of this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. The way that the past and the present was interwoven to give readers a glimpse of how and when the hero and the heroine met, fell in love, got married, and fell apart. I’m a sucker for second chance romance, and this book is definitely a touching second chance story.

The author did a great job of writing characters who were very real. The heroine really sounded like a wife who’s been so exhausted supporting her husband’s career that she no longer is the same woman she once was. The hero wasn’t a bad man, but he was oblivious to the heroine’s feelings, always thinking that he was doing the best he can for the two of them.

This book is about marriage. The fact that no marriage is perfect and that it is always a work in progress. It is not enough to work for your family. You must also work ON your family. You cannot just endure in silence. You have to let your partner know when things are not going right anymore. A couple must never stop working hard together, not individually.

I love that this book shows that at one point or another, one or both may want out, give up, let go. It may be the right decision; it may be not. What’s important is that you never stop loving each other, never forget what it was about each other that made you fall in love and decide to spend the rest of your life with that person.

I have to commend K. Webster for writing a book that wasn’t really very emotional but had so much truth in it that it applies to every couple out there, married or not, going through problems or not. I will definitely recommend this book to anybody. The Road Back To Us definitely deserves a five star rating.
