The Woman He Married by Julie N. Ford

I won this on a Goodreads Giveaway.

This book tells the story Josie, a reluctant stay at home mom trapped into a marriage with man who doesn't seem to love her or understand her.

At times I found this book interesting and was rooting for Josie, but there were other times I found myself disgusted at her and couldn't stand to keep reading about her story. I guess you can say I had a love/hate relationship with this book, much like Josie has with her husband.

The book itself seemed to drag at parts and I felt the reader was left too long waiting for a resolution. Also there was once character that I felt needed more of an ending, but the preview for the next book appears to address that for me.

I gave this book three stars because I saw a lot of myself in Josie, because I am a stay-at-home mom who sometimes wonders where my life went, but at the same time, I think she really needed more of a spine. For such a spunky, brave, spirited woman, it seemed a little over-the-top for her to constantly be catering to her husband and cowering at his every word.
