Robyn Carr's The View From Alameda Island Explores Divorce after 24 years of Marriage

Posted by Susan B James on 3:00:00 AM with 4 comments
Robyn Carr's latest release/best seller is Women's fiction and is available on all platforms. I have an ARC copy of The View From Alameda Island to give away.

A poignant and powerful story about how one woman’s best intentions lead to the worst of situations, and how love helps her to heal and ultimately triumph.

From the outside looking in, Lauren Delaney has a life to envy—a successful career, a solid marriage to a prominent surgeon and two beautiful daughters who are off to good colleges. But on her twenty-fourth wedding anniversary, Lauren makes a decision that will change everything.

Lauren won’t pretend things are perfect anymore. She defies the controlling husband who has privately mistreated her throughout their marriage and files for divorce. And as she starts her new life, she meets a kindred spirit—a man who is also struggling with the decision to end his unhappy marriage.

But Lauren’s husband wants his “perfect” life back and his actions are shocking. Facing an uncertain future, Lauren discovers an inner strength she didn’t know she had as she fights for the love and happiness she deserves.

My review:
I didn't want to stop reading and I always love Robyn Carr, It is possible in middle age to decide you deserve a better life. And it is possible to find someone perfect with whom to share it. All of that happens in this book. And I am all for romance with a mature couple which Robyn always does well. There is often a mature couple in her stories. 
But I have a personal problem with evil spouses. So this was not my favorite book. Robyn's evil spouses were extremely convincing. Both Brad and Lauren were definitely married to awful people. So if you are ok with evil spouses then I am sure you will like this book, because Robyn is a wonderful writer.
I have an ARC to give away. Enter below. Happy reading.
