Product Description

On the surface, Ilana Goldstein leads an enviable life: a thriving career and a happy marriage to a handsome doctor. All that's missing is a baby, an emptiness that will surely be filled with time...

Then, in an instant, her life falls apart. Now, beneath Ilana's once flawless exterior hides a dark secret that may destroy the woman who seemed to have it all. Following a rapid succession of crushing trials, Ilana turns to prescription medications to take the edge off her agony—both the ache of her body and the anguish of her soul. But when her desperation to dull the pain leads to the downward spiral of addiction, her friends in the Newport Ladies Book Club must do whatever it takes to save one of their own. Will Ilana's devastating losses bring about her own self-destruction, or will the loving determination of friends and family lend her the strength to overcome?

Heart-wrenching & fantastic
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. Even when I wasn't reading it, I was still thinking about it - worrying and praying for the characters, hoping that it would all turn it right in the end. It was wonderful. It was intense, spiritual, emotional, and just awesome. I had a hard time reading at a few points because it was so real and the emotion was so raw. It was hard. But it was also beautiful & a fantastic story of hope and change.

That's really all I have to say about it, except encourage you to read it. It is well worth the time & you will not regret it.
