A Beautiful Terrible Thing by Jen Waite (Review by Erin Woodward)

1 min read


This is a very quick bitesize read. Jen Waite, meets and marries a man, Marcus, to whom her love knows no bounds. It’s the first time in her life that she’s felt such an all-consuming devotion for someone. It’s a beautiful thing. Or is it?  

A couple weeks after the birth of their first child, Lulu – her husband of five years’ changes, seemingly overnight. Gone is the man who loved, cherished and respected her and in his place is a complete stranger.

After a gruelling month of trying to care for her child while figuring out what happened to her husband, Jen has to make some difficult choices on how to move forward for Lulu’s sake – if not her own.

I am a sucker for a memoir so knowing this was a true story made it difficult to read at times, and although I commiserated with what Jen was going through, I couldn’t pretend to understand it.

You’ll have it finished before you know it and then you can hit up our Virtual GBC interview with Jen on November 16 RSVP here.
