Kathryn Craft's book starts at the point in a marriage when mental illness has pushed a husband to the point that he can no longer face the life in front of him. This book reads a bit like a real-life experience because she really did live through it. I found myself often wondering what was true to her own story and what was made up for this one. Regardless of what really happened and what was fabricated, this is a compelling read. The story is set over 12 tense hours and contains a lot of introspection into what makes a marriage and what breaks it. It was insightful and heartbreaking to watch. I breathed a sigh of relief when it was over, but in the end appreciate the chance to see that life-changing day from an inside perspective.
