too frequently.One thing How do you move on when the person you ve built your whole life around is no longer living That s what these two women, Olivia and Ivy, struggle with throughout the whole book Ironically, they have built their lives around the same man David But they ve built their lives around him in two different ways The story is told from two different perspectives, one a mother and one a wife One can see absolutely no faults in David and one gets to see the ugly side of him way too frequently.One thing this book made me realize was that there s a very, very thin line between jealousy and protectiveness, but also protectiveness and possessiveness Abuse and manipulation is not an overnight thing, but a gradual change in behavior that leaves you wondering how exactly did I get here and why have I let it get this far This book was definitely an eye opener for me.It s ironic that Ivy s situation and choices as a teenager are very similar to the situation Olivia faces after college and yet Ivy doesn t really sympathize with Olivia Even though Ivy knows that she settled for a life with her husband and son and refers to her life as a prison How could she want that for another woman in the same predicament Even though she really doesn t because she s never been supportive of David and Olivia s relationship and is constantly praying for their downfall Once Ivy realized that Olivia was a permanent fixture in David s life, she made it very well known that she was on her son s side no matter what.Ivy isn t exactly an enabler but I think she knows deep down what her son is capable of and she writes it off and makes excuses for him Ivy and Wyatt, David s parents, learn the hardest lesson imaginable turning a blind eye can prove to be fatal.The Tradegy, as it is referred to by Olivia, is mentioned pretty much on the first page and you re left wondering exactly what happened and through the 317 pages of the book, very slowly bits and pieces of the events that took place that day are revealed The big reveal of The Tragedy was not even remotely close to what I was expecting I would have never guessed that It s so much worse than I could ve ever imagined I was seriously blind sided by the reveal, but it just added to the depth of the story.I don t know the words to express how incredibly brave Olivia is to rebuild her life and take back everything that was taken away from her It s amazing to watch her transformation throughout the book She definitely proves just how strong of a woman she truly is, regardless of what her past looks like Olivia sets out a plan to get her life on track and she accomplishes it rather quickly, with a few setbacks.But when Olivia finally gets that puppy she s always wanted that is the true representation of just how far she has come That scene seriously made my heart melt and the biggest grin came across my face That puppy represents so much and it was the happiest moment of the book almost.Ellen is seriously a godsend, inways that I can explain She plays a pretty significant role in helping Olivia find her way again, even though it doesn t seem like it.The bomb dropped at the end is heartbreaking and goes hand in hand with The Tragedy It took me a minute to really process what had occurred The pink teddy bear is all I can tell you about The Tragedy Please, please preorder and read this book The light it sheds on so many aspects is truly amazing Thank the book Gods above and mostly Kelly Rimmer for that Epilogue it was everything I needed andIt provided the exact amount of closure that I needed My goodness this was an amazing book that I almost can t form words Kelly Rimmer is officially a must read author of mine and if she s not one of yours Well she should be ALL THE STARS Oh WOW I almost have no words I had no idea what to write so I ve holding off on writing this review for quite a while I thought maybe I would just give it 5 stars and leave it at that Because every time I started to write this review I got emotional.How have I not read any books from Kelly Rimmer before The story is told from the point of view of Olivia and Ivy Olivia is a young mother to Zoe and she s recently suffered what everyone refers to as The Tragedy , her husband ALL THE STARS Oh WOW I almost have no words I had no idea what to write so I ve holding off on writing this review for quite a while I thought maybe I would just give it 5 stars and leave it at that Because every time I started to write this review I got emotional.How have I not read any books from Kelly Rimmer before The story is told from the point of view of Olivia and Ivy Olivia is a young mother to Zoe and she s recently suffered what everyone refers to as The Tragedy , her husband David s recent death Ivy is David s mother The chapters alternate between Olivia and Ivy.There were many secrets in David and Olivia s relationship.Olivia tells us about David, his death, their marriage and we are slowly given little snippets of information that make the reader well aware of what kind of man David was But this is just the beginning and the way the story unfolds is compelling and heartbreaking.From Ivy, we first hear about her early life as a new mother to David Then as the book continues we learnabout her life, marriage and her relationship with David as he grows Her husband, Wyatt and son, David were her sole purpose in life We also hear her perception of David and Olivia s relationship.Olivia s story is mostly in the present but still contains flashbacks to many things Ivy refers to in her chapters Olivia explains that most people try to avoid talking about what happened But part of her wants to talk about it I just want to say his name I want to scream it in anger, and I want to wail it in grief I was totally immersed in both perspectives I didn t find any of it redundant At times the switch in perspectives gave me a break when things got very emotional But there were also times when both perspectives were intense.The character development was phenomenal There were so many awesome and wonderful characters Olivia s parents and sister Her family s love for her made my heart swell Ingrid, the real estate agent with a heart of gold Ellen, the daycare owner was one of the most kind hearted, loving, and PERFECT characters.You know when they say a novel has you on a roller coaster of emotions I ve probably said it before too, but honestly I don t know how many different feelings I felt while listening to this audio book The kind of book that pull you in, grips you, holds you, wrings you out, leaving you a quivering mess of emotionsThe narrator of this audio book was phenomenal Her voice able to take on each character and what they were saying and feeling at that moment was amazing to me I HEARD the pain in Olivia s voice and it went straight to my heart I HEARD the rage in David s voice and it terrified me I HEARD the kindness in Seb s voice and it brought me to tearsI know this may sound like a devastating read, and it is very emotional However, there were also many genuine moments of happiness, laughter, and hope.I like to think I can see things coming, but there was so much in this novel that I didn t see and would never have guessed And even if I had figured things out, I still would have been left reeling A thought provoking novel in which everything that happened, really COULD happen It made me think of how we parent, how we raise and protect our children And that excusing or ignoring terrible behavior is not protecting them.When I first started this audio book, I honestly thought it was going to take me some time to get through it, only because I find it hard to do other things while listening to an audio book However, it had me gripped and was NOT letting me go It didn t care that it was already 4amAfter the audio ended and there was just dead air, I couldn t move I don t know how long I sat there It was five am I was gutted, raw and so emotional, my eyes puffy from crying.I wanted to wake up my daughter, call my mother, call my best friend, call SOMEBODY to talk about this bookOutstanding read I can t recommend it enough Audiobook

related to Goodreads friend, Violet, when she wrote I thought blood was going to burst through my skin and boil over Mrs Levy was a vile character Most readers felt gut wrenching emotions towards her I m here to say.Mrs Levy met her match in Kelly Rimmer s novel, A Mother s Confession , with Ivy Ivy will have steam coming out of your eyes and ears.Ivy is a mother In law from HELL..Ivy s son, David, can do no wrong.Ivy has no filters..Ivy felt that if Olivia, her daughter in law should kiss his feet in gratitude to land a man like HER SON Olivia who was working toward her degree at a great University was a plain Jane next to her handsome perfect stud son ha It was Olivia that should drop out of school of course if she loved David and move back to David s hometown to be near mommy dearest.Ivy could not part with her son She enabled narcissism in him from the time David was a child David was SPECIAL BEYOND SPECIAL..at the cost of anyone s else s well being.Ivy was terrific at criticizing Olivia covertly, and overtly.Ivy was made of nightmares At the beginning of the story, Olivia mentions The Tragedy.but we never get the full facts of that tragedy until close to the end.Olivia is engaged in a process of healing having been a battered wife horrific cruelty With the help of a therapist Olivia begins to move forward, demonstrating courage and bravery I absolutely admired her strength In this story, we also get a clear look at a controlling mother who is in denial of her son s criminal domestic violence This might be the most frustrating and fascinating part of the entire book I mean, you just wanted to slap this woman at times What was wrong with her Really What makes people like HER Ivy.you and Mrs Levy are THE MOST hated female characters I ve read all year Nasty villains Just nasty yet credit to the author for creating a character like Ivy for us to study An excellent audiobook it holds your attention A little editing would have been ok with me too The story dragged longer than needed but it s easy to forgive this is drama 101 This was a pretty good ride of engaging listening on sale at audible for under 5 2.5 Stars While I found the story

action and detail and I would rather let the story flow without watching for the Breathtaking twist which really wasn t as breathtaking as promised if like me you had guessed it very early on in the novel so by end I was left a little disappointed hide spoiler Your husband took his own life Tell the truth and destroy what s left of your family Or keep a secret that will tear you apart What would you doAn interesting premise and I probably would have loved this book but for the spoiler.This is a book that will strike a cord with many people who have struggled with or know people who s lives are affected by the content of the story, it is easy to read a novel like this and think why or how or why didn t she he but for the victims nothing is straightforward and this book does highlight those struggles Some readers may find this a suspensful read but for me the suspense was spoiled quite early on
