What a delightful story! Ooops, not really. Don't look for a heroic romance. Instead expect a well-written gem, but one disturbing and devastating. It recalls the story of Hosea and Gomer.

I've read many cheating stories in recent years, but angiquesophie's is different. There is an up-front recognition of problems, a willingness to forbear. She gives us hopes and hopes dashed; reconciliation and hope again. Worry and self-recrimination. Her story winds around the arrow that is driving, unerringly, toward her target.

Good vocabulary, excellent proofreading, sympathetic characters, an interesting plot that is as old as the Bible. I never got excited reading I Believed In Her. Did I?—but the promise to me was not one of excitement, rather of introspection and remorse. I was always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I plan to read angiquesophie's other stories. She has intrigued me. Are the other stories similar? I intend to find out.
