What I liked most about this book is that it does not have a "happily ever after " ending, which would have ruined the true meaning of this story. Ben verbally abuses his family and his horrible temper causes a serious accident which leaves his wife seriously injured. No amount of remorse on his part can ensure that Maddy will forgive him, not only for the accident but for the realization that their life prior to the accident caused her stress and grief.

You should never have to get out of anyone’s way in your own house.
