Series: Pub Fiction (Book 2)
...Despite my wavering on my feelings over Shawn's suicide as the years pass, I still move through the grief stages. I fluctuate from anger to blame to understanding; I still struggle to compartmentalize my feelings toward the man I assumed was my forever. The man I thought I knew. The hardest part was getting over the final images I saw of him, ones that have plagued me over the years. But after talking it through with Hillary, I realize Shawn wasn't thinking about me finding him that way, it's not like he was being malicious. No, he was simply hurting, and not in any frame of mind to think of those around him. I just can't ever seem to stop asking why? Or how could you?
I chose this excerpt for a reason. I felt the way Gillian explains a persons emotions when someone close to them chooses to go this way was accurate. Emotions are all over the place and fluctuate daily, hourly, and sometimes by the minute. It's hard to wrap your mind around the situation...but there is no way to know what they were thinking and the answer to why?...will never come.
I loved Levi and the patience he shows Braunwyn. They are wonderful characters and their love for each other is felt throughout the entire story.
Braunwyn is a strong female. She has endured heartache and loss and survived. Braun has a good support system and is an excellent mother.
Really enjoyed On The Rocks and can't wait to read what Gillian Jones writes next!
