    I haven t read the first book in the series but this worked well as a standalone As I got into the book, I began to understand how Jennie could have walked out on her husband years ago during a manic episode David Burnett manages to get inside both Jennie s and Thomas s heads so you see their relationship from both points of view Now that Thomas has made a new life for himself, following the death of his second wife, he is wary about letting Jennie anywhere near his daughters and especially his [...]

    I was so happy to read a book with a main character who had a mental illness Having had depression for a long time myself, and feeling someone judged on occasion There is such a stigma against those with mental illnesses, which is both unfair and unfortunate But it is what it is, as the saying goes Once and Future Wife was an emotional read anyway At the beginning of the book, Jennie s ex husband s second wife has been killed trying to save a child in her classroom from an abusive father Doctors [...]

    I know I ve said this before but David Burnett s stories read so well, they flow wonderfully, you feel so connected to the characters and become entranced by the storyline, they are a joy to read and extremely hard to put down Don t worry if you haven t read Those Children Are Ours because the author relates the main parts to the reader so this can be read completely as a stand alone read We are reunited with my one of my favorite characters Thomas, he is such a lovely man, he and his children h [...]

    REVIEW ONCE AND FUTURE WIFE When I read David Burnett s Those Children Are Ours I thought the story was well written and the characters believable I simply could not get enough Therefore, when I discovered that there was a sequel I could not wait to get my hands on it I expected it to be as good as the first book and I was not disappointed Once and Future Wife can be read as a stand alone However, I would recommend that you read Those Children Are Ours first so that you will better appreciate th [...]

    I have to admit I did not read Those Children Are Ours so was thrown into the storyline that that book created My guess is that both Once and Future Wife and the prequel can be read as standalones as this book read great to me without the previous book.I relate Once and Future Wife to watching a scary, not necessarily horror movie but one with scary parts, movie There were parts of the book that I knew were going to play out in a way I would not like Jennie was making decisions I would not endor [...]

    Although this can be read as a standalone, I had the opportunity to read the first book last year Any parent who has gone through or is currently going through a divorce, separation, etc especially if mental illnesses are involved should grab a copy We all make choices at different stages in our lives that have the potential to affect how the rest of our life plays out Jennie returns and strives to prove to her former husband and family that she has changed In her mind, a potential, good future [...]

    While this is the second book in the series, each book can be read as a standalone Those Children Are Ours, the first book, was wonderful Once and Future Wife is even better Jennie is still redeeming herself to her ex and her children but she is doing it She is working hard to make a life for herself and be self sufficient Her children are working on accepting her and making her of her life and the ex is letting them David Burnett has a way with telling the story He writes with so much emotion [...]

    I, personally, loved this book I liked Jennie in Those Children Are Ours As the story went on I could understand how her illness could make her walk away while her mothering instinct made her still long for a relationship with her children I could also understand how Thomas would fear having her in their daughters lives.The same goes with Once and Future Wife Thomas moved on and had a healthy, loving relationship with a wonderful woman He lost her and was heartbroken It makes sense that he would [...]

    Did you happen to read Those Children Are Ours It was such a touching book that I knew I had to read the sequel You can read this as a stand alone but you really want to read both of them.Jennie Bateman is bi polar and this author hit it right on the head I have a friend who first didn t take meds then went off them Trust me when I tell you this medical condition is exactly as written but in a very sensitive way Jennie walked out on her children and husband 14 years ago and lets just say she was [...]

    My Life
    After reading the first book, Those Children Are Ours I couldn t wait to read this installment I love a good love story as well as the next person and I had always hoped that Jennie and Thomas would find a way to rekindle their love I just didn t want Thomas s wife Emma to die for it to happen In my eyes, Jennie had made amends for walking out on her children in the first book and she deserved to be happy again.When Jennie started going down the bad route of stopping her medication, I was scream [...]

    Will you give love a second chance Thomas and Jennie s first marriage failed from the first book This Children Are Ours Their second romance started in a very tragic way They say that if you are meant for each other, fate will always find a way What I love about this story is the willing to forget and forgive It is a very powerful message that sometimes especially man is not easy thing to do There are many laugh out loud moments while reading this book There is so much love about blended familie [...]

    SPOILER FREE With not having read the first book in this series, I will now have to back track So I would strongly recommend that you read them in order even though you can read this as a stand alone This book was hard to put down It hit close to home and felt as real as real could get What happens behind the cover of this book is is there are just really no words to describe how amazing this book is Please pick yourself up a copy of it received for an honest review

    Jessica
    Being able to forgive and forget isn t such an easy thing to do I think this book shows that Thomas is a very strong man, in the sense that he s able to forgive and forget There were many times while reading this book that I absolutely laughed out loud The love that this family has is awesome, especially being that they are a blended family This book was really hard to put down once you started reading it I so enjoyed Those Children Are Ours, and I equally enjoyed Once and Future Wife
