For Better or For Worse by Joanne Rawson is the story of three British women who are friends, neighbors, and each other’s confidants. They are Annie, Lorna and Celina. On the outside, they are leading healthy, happy lives with their husbands or family, but only they know the true condition of their lives. Annie is devastated when she finds out that her husband is cheating on her. Being at home was never an interesting life for her and now it is getting unbearable. When she falls for her Salsa teacher, she finds some solace, but then her husband leaves his girlfriend. But can Annie trust him with her heart and life again?
Lorna is not happy with her husband, but after four children, she and her husband are making an effort to make things work for their children’s sake. When Lorna’s teen flame comes back into her life, things get even more complicated. Now her past secrets are revealed one by one and it is affecting her life and her children. Is she not destined for love?
When Celina’s ex-husband came to see her in her office after twelve years of absence, she had no idea he would be asking for a second chance. She gives him the second chance, but her son’s girlfriend is making things difficult for her. Now she has to accept that girl and hope things fall perfectly into place or else she will lose her son.
This novel may seem like a head trip, but it is oh so good. For Better or For Worse is a story of three women who are so different, but they are like regular women. I felt a connection with each and every one of them. I really appreciated the fact that these women were in their forties and were not perfect women. They had their faults, but like everyone, they deserved to be happy. I loved the novel and enjoyed the fact that the characters were real women.
