The fateful day Mimi Marcus has dreaded begins with a phone call… The wife of a U.S. Marine, Mimi spent countless nights worried that her husband Joel would fall in the line of duty. He had fought valiantly and served his country with honor. That’s exactly what they tell her when they deliver the news—Joel was taken by the enemy in Afghanistan. Her husband is dead. In desperate need of closure, Mimi travels to the one place Joel still has ties—The Marcus Ranch in Texas, inherited by his handsome younger brother Austin. New beginnings are only an illusion… The closer Mimi grows to the Marcus family, the more she considers it home. But when suspicions of Joel’s past surface, Austin refuses to disclose family secrets—even to his brother’s widow. It’s only by accident she uncovers evidence of Joel’s tainted past. Devastated by his lies and betrayal, she slowly opens up to Austin, and together they unfold layers of pain and grief. Mimi is sure she’ll never love again, but is Austin the man to prove her wrong? Then the unthinkable happens… Just as Mimi finds new hope in a future with Austin, Joel returns home from war. Enraged, traumatized, and teetering on the edge of insanity, Joel confesses to a history of deception, revealing yet another secret—this one too terrible to forgive. In an awful twist of fate, Joel proves marriage vows are made to be honored. No matter what.

Review :

Till Death Us Do Part by Cristina Slough was not an easy read for me. In fact it was a very hard one.

And I had to try twice to get myself to continue reading.
It might have been a mistake to read the Blurb – but on the other Hand I might not have chosen to read it at all without reading the Blurb.
And those divided feelings continue for me throughout the whole book. It is a well written novel with fully developed characters.
The problems I encountered are my personal ones only and result ín my very personal point of view on a soldier novel.
The storyline of this book definitively deserves reading attention and I am sure it will find many lovers.
As usual I will not comment on the story itself in this special case also to refrain myself from rubbing off my personal point of view on to fellow readers.
Instead I would like to invite you to read this story because I am curious what you think …
