From New York Times bestselling author Allison Winn Scotch comes an honest, touching, and funny exploration of falling in and out of love, told from two perspectives—one rewinding history, one moving it forward—and each with bias and regret.
When their paths first cross, Ben Livingston is a fledgling screenwriter on the brink of success; Tatum Connelly is a struggling actress tending bar in a New York City dive. They fall in love, they marry, they become parents, and they think only of the future. But as the years go by, Tatum’s stardom rises while Ben’s fades. In a marriage that bears the fallout of ambition and fame, Ben and Tatum are at a crossroads. Now all they can do is think back…
A life of passion, joy, tragedy, and loss—once shared—becomes one as shifting and unpredictable as a memory. As the pieces of their past come together, as they explore the ways love can bend and break, Ben and Tatum come to see how it all went wrong—and wonder what they can do now to make it all right.
I adored this book. Winn Scotch has again delivered with a book that captures the audience through amazing characters, richness and depth in story and such universal topics. Winn Scotch is not afraid to really dig into topics that hit a cord with readers and force them to look inward and examine their own lives. I could not put it down and wanted to talk to others about this book. I think this book will make a great book club selection because there is so much to talk about and it is one of those reads that will cause emotional reactions. Another hit by a very gifted writer.
