Unable to take it much longer, I needed to clear my head. I rushed off, passing the restroom in the waiting room and darted into it. I locked the deadbolt behind me, thankful it was a single person restroom. I leaned back against the cold tile wall, and it was as if the walls of the Hoover Dam had come crumbling down. Tears rushed down my cheeks, soaking my face. My body was so heavy that I could hardly stand. I began to slide down the wall until I was sitting on the floor, my arms using every ounce of their might to keep my legs pulled up as they pressed against my huge belly. My body rocked back and forth, each sob ripping through harder than the last. My cell phone began to ring in my purse, but I had no energy to answer it. It continued ringing, but my cries soon drowned out the sound. After what must have been minutes, although it seemed like an eternity, a pounding started on the door of the restroom.


3.75 Star Review by Jennifer Hagen

Brooke and Savannah are best friends who have withstood the embarrassment and manipulation of a man who was dating both of them at the same time.  They are now married to twin brothers and while one of them enjoys the fast-paced life of city living and the pressures of a career, the other has only ever wanted to be married and raise a family in the surburbs.

Brooke and Josh are so excited to share the news of their pregnancy, while Jake is excited to think that he and Savannah could also be ready to start a family.  They were married within one month of each other, so of course it would seem like a natural progression for them to be pregnant at the same time.  The best friends do everything together (including dating the same guy…I’m sorry, I just couldn’t resist throwing that in again). 

Savannah is not ready for children.  She has a plan that does not include having children before she is 30 years old.  Savannah is very determined that she will have the final say in this discussion, but easy going Jake for once is standing his ground.

“You know what the problem is with everything you’re saying?  It’s all about you.  Not once have you tried to see things from my point of view.  No, it’s Savannah’s way or the highway.”

Yay Jake!  You finally stood your ground!!  Savannah is very headstrong and a little on the controlling side, so it was nice to see that Jake put her in her place, if only for a brief moment.  Whether we like it or not, sometimes we don’t get the final say in our destiny…sometimes fate determines our pathway in life.

“I just don’t get it.  This is not the plan I had in mind.”

Not only has fate changed Savannah’s life, but also that of Brooke’s.  Brooke has not had an easy pregnancy with the severe nausea and vomiting.  She is far from a glowing soon-to-be-mother and this is hard for Brooke to embrace.  Just when Brooke thought her pregnancy couldn’t get any worse, it does and she is scared of what will happen to either her or the baby.  Josh has been by her side the entire time being a doting father-to-be and this new reality causes him to face his fears.

“You can’t do this. This isn’t a decision you can just make and expect me to be okay with!” His voice continued to rise as his face turned beet red. 

The girls and their husbands have a very special bond with one another and each of them rely upon the other for strength.  It was nice to have everybody looking out for one another and being by their sides when the world felt like it was closing in on just one person.  What a wonderful  extended family to bring a child into!

Now I know you’re wondering…what about Luke?  We get a couple glimpses of him and he’s still taking glimpses at legs when his eyes should be focused on whom he is speaking to.

“You are a remarkable woman, and you will be one of my biggest regrets in life.”

This was a nice follow up to its predecessor “Hourglass” that focused on Brooke, Savannah and Luke.  Whereas the first book was meant for your angst level to sky rocket, this book was more of a compassionate read that allowed you to reach inside and feel something other than your blood pressure reaching its limits.  This will touch your heart and make you hold tight onto the things that matter most in your life – your family and how you will do anything for them.
