#Bookreview for reality fiction novel Burnt Promises by Brenda Perlin @BrooklynandBo #divorce

Burnt Promises

Burnt Promises is the second book in the Brooklyn and Bo Chronicles and charts the conflicts involved in two marriage breakups told in the voice of the one who was ‘the other woman.’

There are some who will have little sympathy with this character, she even brands herself as the home wrecker, which I fear has done nothing for her own self-esteem. But, as we know it always takes two and I’m a strong believer in the fact that you can’t break up a happy marriage. You can only hope that when marriages do break up it’s for the right reasons and that when the dust eventually settles the couple, after all the pain of divorce, manage to make a happy and successful life together. I can’t tell you what the outcome is for this couple, for fear of spoilers, but I will be putting the third book on my to-be-read pile to complete the story.

This is an easy to read book and bravely written by the author as this is her first-hand experience told in faction style. It recounts her personal struggles with her health as well as the situation she found herself in and really portrays just what an emotionally exhausting time it all was.

  3. Christoph Fischer says:

    This one is my favourite in the series. Brenda tells a good story, all the more poignant as I understand that there are some real stories behind this.
    Brenda makes some very valid points about divorce, dignity, blame, homewrecking and making the best of a situation.
    Read without prejudice and enjoy!

      I totally agree Christoph, read with an open mind for we never know what some else goes through until we walk in their shoes, and Brenda does a great job of showing us the points she makes. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
