“I want you
to remember, Faith,” he said softly. “I want you to remember all the good times
and leave out the bad ones.”
“I don’t
think I get to pick and choose.”
“We both
did things we weren’t proud of. Things that I’d be happy for you to forget. But
if it comes back to you, I want you to know that I’m sorry. It was my fault.”
I wanted to
ask him what we’d done, what awful things we’d put each other through. But I
was afraid to know. Maybe, in some ways, my memory loss was a blessing. All the
bad things had been wiped clean while for Will, he had to live with them each
day, had to remember every word, every hurtful action.
I leant in
closer and rested my head on his chest. At first his body stiffened, then he
relaxed, put his arm around me and held me close.
We laid
like that for a time while something skimmed the sky high above us.
“Look a
shooting star,” he said.
International Space Station.”
“Show off.”        
I giggled.
Then he bent his head, put his lips on mine and kissed me.

Michelle Montebello

Beautiful, Fragile by Michelle Montebello was an unexpected read. Tough it could be classified as a romance; it was so much more. It was a story about second chances, love, family and finding your way. Faith and Will have been married for years and have three beautiful children. Everything seems perfect on the outside but looks can be deceiving.

Why does Faith find herself on an Italian beach, injured and with no memories of the last ten years? Those years include falling in love with her husband and the three children they share. Now she is expected to go back to a life she does not remember with a man who does not seem to love her. What drove her to another country and why does she feel so out of place in the life that everyone tells her is hers?

The faith we meet is vulnerable and lost. We see her trying to acclimate to a live she never remembers. Will seems off and also a bit lost. What happened between them? But is this their second chance? But will getting her memory back change things? Beautiful, Fragile by Michelle Montebello was an emotional story that captivated me from start to finish.
