Home Wrecker II
We wanted to share with you our review of Brenda Perlin’s latest novel “Home Wrecker II” and boy, what a read it is! Here’s the synopsis from Amazon:
“Brooklyn Rosen had high moral principles and was raised properly. Married for over fifteen years, those standards went out the window along with her fidelity when she met Bo. After becoming a self-proclaimed “Home Wrecker” Brooklyn left behind her marital home, along with the damage caused by her emotional wrecking ball. But the whispered remarks followed.
In “Home Wrecker: The Brooklyn Chronicles” we learn what shaped Brooklyn, the trials of an unhappy marriage and a deep abiding love that would not be denied. We meet a troubled, spiteful wife, who does not want to become an “ex”.
Will Brooklyn and Bo survive, or will all be lost to a bitter woman?”
Here’e the 5 Star review we gave it!!
I really loved Home Wrecker I and could not wait to read II. Home Wrecker I was
raw, honest, and emotionally gripping and Home Wrecker II, if possible, was even
more so. Both books explore tough issues. Brooklyn’s real self is laid bare for
all of us to see. She shares her past, her motivations, and her own guilt with a
candidness that I can but admire. The moral dilemma presented here is something
many have faced.
Brooklyn was raised to live a life of integrity, and had
endeavored to do so all her life. Never did she for one minute think she would
ever be `the other woman.’ It wasn’t in her psyche. She wasn’t a cheater, a Home
Brooklyn never planned to get a divorce, hurting those she loved
and sacrificing relationships in the process. But something changed in her when
she struggled with a near fatal illness. Life was short, why live on eggshells
and just exist? Why be afraid and unhappy? She never thought she would exchange
security for the unknown either. But sometimes, security comes at too high a
price. And for Brooklyn, this was exactly the case. Home Wrecker II delves
deeper into the whys, showing the reader just how shattered her marriage really
For me, loving Bo and Brooklyn was easy. I found myself rooting for
them. They both seemed to be paired with not only the wrong people, but to ones
that were harming them to their very core. Brooklyn was married to a angry,
controlling man and Bo was married to a very unstable, selfish woman. As they
try and start a new life together, the all consuming trial in their lives is
Bo’s ex, Ruth. Her emails and calls to him only go to show a very embittered
woman who is quickly losing her grip on reality.
This story serves to
remind us that there are two sides to every situation. For Brooklyn, she
continues to examine her motives and her actions; that after living through much
heartache and oppression, she finally is able to stand up for herself. She is
now in charge of herself as a person. She fully accepts her own actions, both
good and bad, and is working on forgiving herself. I look forward to the next
book and to seeing the growth that both of them go through.
You will love these books! They will make you question and think; angry one moment and happy the next; crying over the loss and rejoicing over the gain.
