Hannah and Will Abbott define the American dream: two kids, a home in the suburbs, and a seemingly perfect marriage. But discontent lurks beneath the surface of their outwardly happy lives. Each Will and Hannah suspect the other of infidelity. When they independently consult divorce attorneys, the conflict escalates and Hannah flees with the children against a court order. Hannah's snap decision starts a social media firestorm and, suddenly, the Abbott divorce is big news.

With family stress and legal fees rising, Will and Hannah accept an invitation to appear on a reality television show for divorcing couples. During filming on the beautiful island of St. John, the Abbotts must decide once and for all: can their love survive their past?

The story unfolds through viewpoint of four characters: Will, the affable boy-next-door everyone loves; Hannah, the fastidious wife still in love with her husband; David, the tough-talking attorney with a heart of gold; and Rachel, the insecure novice lawyer infatuated with the Abbotts. Written with both humor and heart, The Language of Divorce is a captivating debut which will stay in readers’ hearts long after the final page.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.
My Thoughts
When I give my reviews, I like to be open and completely honest with them. So, I will tell you. I wasn’t sure if I would like this novel. It’s a debut, and sometimes, debuts aren’t my favorite, especially with women’s fiction, since I don’t read a lot of them. But, I started this novel and within 24 hours, I had it finished. I was up late, gripping the pages and turning them, needing to know what was happening to Will and Hannah.
Will and Hannah. I liked them. I hated them. I loved them. They were complex. They were emotional. They were life-like. As a woman who has been divorced, due to infidelity(and drugs), I knew a lot of what Hannah was going through, especially with a baby mixed up in the center of it. I also felt like I knew what Will was going through, too. Their characters quickly worked their way into my heart and stayed there til the end.
Treese has extreme talent. She chiseled her characters beautifully. She stitched together a real, yet humorous story line, bringing her readers a raw, and emotional journey of love, divorce, hope, and brokenness. Four stars and hats off to this new author and I am looking forward to reading more of her work in the future!
