I will defiantly check out her other books? I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting from the story, but I feel as though it could have been more. It seemed like all was resolved pretty quickly and I felt conflicted over a few things and how they went down. If sex has become a birthday and anniversary chore, you're skipping one of the best benefits of sharing a bed. I feel like there was much more info in the author's head that just didn't make it to the page. He looked like a federal agent, a very buff, seriously handsome agent.
We are also trying to get pregnant and are having sex every day for 15-day stretches a month. Till death do us part. Until he died then people started asking her for the plans and she didn't want his memory tainted so she said she burned them. Together they set about renovating Alex's fathers home which they have inherited and are planning on starting a family. The H made this book for me. That right there added brownie points for me.
He steps in to help Molly periodically as her husband no longer is the man she was in love with. This was a story about love, loss and mourning someone who is still very much alive. And would you be strong enough to stay? Your husband is no longer the person you married. My Husband the Stranger is a very different novel but still reflects Rebecca's brilliantly engaging writing style. I did struggle a little through this book, it was slow going and the twists were pretty predictable.
They were good together, they loved each other, and they had a strong sexual connection. The novel is set in two main time periods - one, in the present day, told from Rebecca's point of view and detailing life after Alex's accident which has left him literally a changed man, and one told from Alex's point of view chronicling the time leading up to the accident. The story doesn't move at a mile a minute - sometimes there isn't that much that seems to be happening, but if feels like it reflects their actual lives and it's full of Molly's anguish and hopes. I have to admit that I found a lot of the storyline a bit predictable and not at all shocking in the 'twisty' sense of the word. It was an interesting account of how a woman is coping after her husband suffers a traumatic brain injury in a late-night accident, but it was a little too. He's gone undercover, but he's chafing in this role.
It didn't grab me like I thought and hoped it would do when I read the bio. And my sex life is not great. I did love how over protective he was and his jealousy lol. However having finished the book, I just can't help but feeling flat. I tried to get in touch with my bisexual side, and found it pretty much missing.
My Husband The Stranger is a contemporary novel that isn't a romance as such, it isn't a completely feel-good read but it also has elements of happiness and positivism, too. Although, I do love to listen when I am on my work commute. Like you got a new husband. Molly and Alex met and it was love at first sight. Sometimes you just need a different read, one that makes you reflect on something you really don't think about—like ever unless you find yourself living it—and feel the struggle that, in the end, makes you appreciate the little things even more. While I didn't take the book too serious, I think the story could have been fleshed out more for a more complete novel - it would have been nice to include the meeting between these two characters and what transpired in Las Vegas- but it worked fine as written as well.
When Alex's dad died he left the cottage to Alex but not his twin brother Graeme. In 1974, the Ohio woman had been reported missing by her estranged husband. Had he been hiding all that musculature under layers of flannel and leather? Someone who has forgotten how to love her. Molly and Alex seem like the perfect couple. All review opinions are entirely my own and totally unbiased. I imagine the basis to this novel could easily read as someone's real life story and sadly probably does, considering the many brain and memory conditions diagnosed today.
How can she stay married to a man she doesn't know? It's not easy at all and it's hard to judge Molly for her thoughts, insecurities, and even her behaviour. Elisabeth first approaches him alone, but doesn't even get financial compensation for the repayment demanded by his falsely paid-out life insurance. That's what made me sad at times during this book; I was left feeling moved and generally rather impressed. Stars: Five, a solid, very realistic read, that made me think how would I react. I got over my past crappy experiences. Alex and Molly are blissfully happily married - one anothers soul mate. What a surprise find this story was! There was so much uncertainty and unsaid emotions between these characters I just couldn't put this book down! Evie started off kind of selfish and immature, but as her vulnerabilities came to light, you could see a lot of her behavior was a coping mechanism.
That said, I thought 'My Husband The Stranger' was emotionally charged and very raw, with the split narrative working well to hone in on the important elements of the overall storyline. But Molly is still very much in love with her husband and hopes her unrequited love for him will return. What you would do if your husband became another person overnight? Throughout the book you feel for both sides and I think that's the way it should be. I read this book just after it came out, yet it has taken me until now to finally leave a review. It did really paint the picture of life before and during, but at times I was like come on where is this going? Fast forward three years and Alex is no longer the man Molly met and fell in love with, after a tragic accident that left Alex with neuropsychological issues, will Molly ever get back the man she loves or is he lost to her forever? Some parts were quite hard to read, and one part which I can't say without spoiling the story to do with Alex's brother felt a little unbelievable, but I felt really satisfied at the end that I'd read an entertaining and interesting novel.
