Reading – In The Mirror, A Memoir of Shattered Secrets by Ann Carbine Best

I “met” Ann Best and found her blog, Ann Best’s Blog (now at wordpress) through the A – Z Challenge in April. I discovered that she had written a memoir titled In the Mirror, A Memoir of Shattered Secrets and ordered it as it sounded like something that would be a really interesting read.

I was not disappointed.

Ann Carbine and Larry Best fell in love and were married in 1961. She thought it would be forever. After having four children and sharing their life together, she found out that he had been having affairs with men. Ann was devastated, but they still wanted to save their marriage. Following her through her journey of pain and heartache, trying to help Larry and stay married, I felt such sadness when it finally ended. Ann was forced to start her life over as a single mother of four kids and decided to move to a new place to begin again. It wasn’t long before tragedy struck again and Ann had to face the anguish of almost losing two daughters in a car accident that seriously injured one and permanently disabled another. There is so much more and it is well worth your time to read Ann’s story and discover just how strong one woman can be when faced with no other choice.
