What do you do when your soulmate walks out on you to live a new life without you? That’s what Kimberly must find out for herself in Ten Thousand I Love Yous by Lisa Slabach. This is the story of one woman’s journey of finding her new normal after her divorce from Jay. With a daughter now starting college, this should have been the time that she and Jay would have grown even closer together, but now she finds herself having to navigate new relationships and romances, as well as re-establishing who Kimberly Braxton is without her other half. But what is life without a spanner being thrown into the works? After a year and a half, Jay speaks of reconciliation, but will she be able to forgive him and his words that tore her heart out? Or will he have to live with the biggest mistake of his life forever and watch her new life unfold from the sidelines?
Lisa Slabach delivers a beautiful rendition of how someone can create a new life after heartbreak in Ten Thousand I Love Yous. This story pulled at every single one of my heartstrings and I often found myself being so involved in the story that I would find myself crying and whooping for joy on Kimberly’s behalf: I believe that this is a testament to her ability to produce an outstanding story. The character development of Kimberly was so realistic because it was ever so subtle that it was more believable. I also enjoyed the fiery temper and pride that Kimberley possessed throughout the book. I couldn’t help but feel the love that Kimberly and Jay shared throughout their 18 years of marriage and found their being apart to be exceptionally poignant. This story reminded me that no matter your age, new beginnings are possible for everyone.
