I hate to say that I skipped the other two books and read this one first. I don’t think that I missed anything. I believe that I needed to read the book about the parents before I read about the boys so that I knew what was going on. Molly was once the woman that took care of David’s three sons. One night she took up for them and things got out of hand and David finally gave into his feelings that he had been hiding for five months. He wanted Molly to get pregnant so that she would be his forever. He makes her feel that he doesn’t love her and she is second best to his wife that died giving birth to their third son. Molly doesn’t know that David is keeping secrets about his first marriage and she feels bad about never getting David’s love. They go on to have two sons of their own and when Molly turns 50 her three youngest talk her into giving divorce papers to David and finding that will love her. David won’t give her the divorce she is requesting. He knows he won’t live without the woman he has always loved and he starts to realize what he has done the twenty-five years of their marriage. He has a lot to make up for and he has to tell his sons to get out of his life and let him show his wife the feelings he has always felt for her. I have read many books by this author and I will tell you that she really knows how to write her books and get the readers involved. I was crying almost through the whole book. It was really emotional. Going back and forth between memories in their marriage and what they are going through now. I have to say that I have never cried so much while reading a book. When a book gets to you this much you know that the author has done a great job writing the book. The characters were great and yes at first David wasn’t one of my favorites. Once I got to know him my mind was changed. I could feel the love that these two had for each other and it made me wish for that kind in my marriage. I know that there is ups and downs in every marriage. That is what made me love this story so much. Nothing ever turns out the way you thought it would. I would tell everyone to read this series. I am glad that I started where I did but you might want to read yours in order.
The Sinclair Men, 3
There is no boundary when it comes to love and lust.
David Sinclair has been in love with Molly ever since she walked into his life. The problem is, the Sinclair line is destined to only love one woman. At least, that is what he believes. When he gets Molly pregnant through one night of passion, he does the right thing and marries her.
After twenty-five years of being in his dead wife’s shadow, Molly demands a divorce. When David refuses, she has no other choice than try to make it work. She is in love with him and wants nothing more than for him to whisper those same words.
Can David rectify the sins of his past? Will he be able to move on and accept that Molly is the woman he loves? Or will her fail and finally know what loss truly means?
‘Learning to Forgive’ is the third book in the Sinclair Men series by Sam Crescent. David Sinclair has loved Molly from the moment he met her, but he has never told her. After being married to David for twenty five years Molly has had enough. David refuses to divorce Molly no matter how many times she brings it up. Molly still loves David and tries to make it work one last time. This book has so much promise in it. The excuse for not telling Molly was childish and cowardly. I am amazed that Molly stayed for as long as she did before demanding a divorce. Molly is a strong and forgiving woman, but needs to develop a back bone. I also do not like the point that the author says she cannot divorce David without his consent. That is not true, yes it takes a bit but it still can be done. The author did a great job with flipping back and forth between the past and the present. At no time did I feel lost or confused as to what happened when. At the end of the story I am not sure the problems were really resolved. I do really wish for Molly they are. Overall this was a good addition to the series. I cannot wait for the next installment.
