Do not read this without Kleenex. Domestic abuse is that taboo thing that we know happens but don’t really want to know it’s happening. Those people are our loved ones, most of the time we can’t fathom someone we know could treat another person they “love” as such. Atlas, Lily and Ryle are all complicated beings who are neither all good or all bad as Colleen Hoover so eloquently describes In this novel of domestic abuse. This will be a novel I will always highly recommend.
