the.book.chat. :::Favorite Fictional Couple:::
Joining the fun at The Book Chat hosted by Sweet Green Tangerine, I have to pick out my favorite fictional couple. This is not an easy thing to do when you are as indecisive as I am.
Man, did I really have think on this one. Do I pick some grand love story that makes your heart sing at how sickening in love they are on every page in every chapter of the book or do I do with a more modern rugged real people kinda love?
I picked 'real' fiction love. A couple in their 30's who married, and had kids, and life was grand, and they had a routine, and toddler messes, and they were happy- until the day they weren't. This is a couple I enjoyed reading about. They didn't sugar coat anything. Marriage is hard at times & love can get jacked up, especially when your husband cheats on you. So what do you do then? You leave town with the kids to clear your head, of course! Maybe you go stupid for a few weeks while you process that everything you knew is no more. Maybe you contact an old flame and make some mistakes of your own; maybe you don't. At the end of the day, Nathan & Sarah loved each other. Truly loved each other and their family. They put on their grownup pants and figured things out.
Sarah & Nathan Price from Husband and Wife a novel by Leah Stewart.
