Angela “Angie” Frank has grown up in a dysfunctional home, where her only means of coping is through music and her father’s love. The bond she holds with her father stirs bitterness and jealousy in her mother, which creates a life-long wedge between them. When her father is murdered, Angie is bereft. She becomes angry, afraid, aggressive, confrontational, and always ready for a good fight. She’s also ready for a good man. When she finally finds the man of her dreams her aggressive temperament and gullible ways ultimately push him away. Angie is now forced to reflect over her life, examine how and why she became an angry woman and learn to move on even When the Love is Gone.
“When the Love is Gone is a very good book. Many readers will be able to relate to it and feel from many different aspects of the book. Author Melissa Burnett does a good job at bringing such a real story to readers. I believe that many people would enjoy this book and the direction it takes. I give it four stars.
As with many books, there are some things I did not like about the book. I felt that the ending came too fast. I think their should have been more leading up to the tragedy in Angie and Todd’s marriage. I would have liked a better background on Todd as well. Some of the scenes where Angie acted out in angry showed a lot of immaturity that I did not like and would have rather skipped over.
In the end, I think this book was very good and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good read. Within the first few chapters, I was eager to see where the story went.
