I just finished the book "Happens every day" by Isabel Gillies.. WOW!!! You could see her H's A unfolding & how she was trying to ignore the 'signs'.

My only complaint is the book ended sad ( ya, but it's real life & real life IS sad) but I did read in her acknowledgements that she did get her 'happily ever after'.

FYI.. Isabel Gillies plays Kathy Stabler on one of my favorite shows.. Law & Order SVU.


"Sorry" works when a mistake is made, but not when trust is broken. So in life, make mistakes, but never break trust. Because forgiving is easy, but forgetting & trusting again is sometimes impossible

I just finished this too!

I kept thinking... this woman knows exactly what's going on in my life.

It wasn't particularly well-written - I thought her writing was average - but the courage she showed to tell her story was awe-inspiring.

Everything her husband did... everything she did, including the getting on her knees and begging scene... I totally related to each and every aspect of it.

Tough book to read though.

I also just finished this book. I thought it was great. Really brought to life her pain and desire to keep her family. I wanted to slap the bitch when she said "it happens every day." I can't wait for the sequel to the story when she talks about the divorce of "Two Cheaters in Love" Just a working title.

Oh how I would love to read a sequel.. just to see if they are still together
