Review of The Distance Between Us by Sibzzreads

Happy children, happy husband, happily ever after?
Tasha knows that she should count her blessings: married for eleven years, mother to three healthy children, she should be content with her lot. However, feelings of frustration have settled over her like a dark cloud. Despite living under the same roof and sharing the same bed, Tasha has never felt so distant from her husband, Charlie. She feels worn down by the mental load of motherhood, drowning in the never-ending chores that keep the family and household afloat. Most of all she worries that her once happy marriage is slipping away from her.
Tasha longs for something to change, but when change comes calling will it really be the answer she was hoping for? And is it possible to fall in love with the same person twice?
A modern day love story about family, marriage and risking it all to have it all.
I practically devoured this book. It’s a fairly everyday scenario, a marriage gone a bit stale, the main character Tasha is feeling a bit dissatisfied with everything, but it’s so well written that it’s absolutely compelling to read.
There’s an indefinable quality to the writing that just makes you want to keep reading, to see what will happen next. I found myself so drawn to the characters and the storyline.
It’s easy to see how the scenario that Tasha finds herself in can happen. She’s busy and hassled, juggling motherhood and household chores. She gave up her career as a doctor to stay at home, but now feels taken for granted. Her husband is busy at work and not home as much as she’d like. She makes a mistake, and it may cost her her marriage.
It’s a very well written, believable and sympthtically written family drama. A book that will stay with you long after you’ve finished it. Highly recommended. Thanks to Aria Fiction for the invitation to be part of the blog tour, and for the advance copy of the book.

MY RATING: 5 stars
