“But the truth is, we never really know what goes on, on the other side of the fence, behind those closed doors. Instead of looking over the fence, we should really be keeping our eyes fixed firmly on our side and cherishing the grass that we have—bald patches and all—just a little bit more.”
Grace had found a seemingly perfect man. Responsible for her younger sister Millie, who has down syndrome, Grace found it hard to find someone who would go along with the packaged deal – Grace and Mille. That was, until Jack.
Jack is a wealthy, handsome lawyer. He seemed perfect. Treated Grace amazingly, and even more, he treated Millie the same. He seemed to love Millie as much as he loved Grace. Grace and Jack were inseparable. Grace never went anywhere without Jack. But things were not quite what they seemed behind closed doors.
I know this book is loved, but I did not love it. While we get a bad feeling about Jack right away, we quickly learn why that is. However, it felt like the author beat a dead horse with about 65% of the book focusing on Jack’s actions and his action’s that he was planning for the future.
The beginning of the book was good. It’s an easy and fast read. Once we get over the hill and into some action, the book gets good again. I really feel like if this book had been edited down, then it could have been amazing.
Alas, a lot of people do love it, and this is merely my opinion. You should give it a try. You can find it here.
