Good book. We never know when we are devastated by a choice or act of something we have no control over will but us on the edge of despair. Sometimes being so close to the edge makes us reevaluate our existence and where we should be going
The writing style was a bit off for me. But the book might be helpful to those who find themselves in a similar situation.
Divorce is never easy and divorce later in life (grey divorce) is even worse. This is the true account of Kathryn Taylor. How she fell in love and never saw the ending of her marriage coming.

Two Minus One is an intimate account of the shocking and unexpected disintegration of a marriage. This memoir is the personal account of one woman’s emotional journey as she tries to pick up the pieces of her life and move forward through grief and loneliness. The author did a wonderful job of sharing this sad time in her life with honesty and integrity. This would be a great book for anyone who is going through a divorce or any painful time.
This is an incredible memoir of heartbreak and deception, the quest to regain balance and survive, growth and eventually joy. I felt the author's anguish and I teared up a few times as she unfurled the circumstances that tore her world apart. The journey was brutal, but in the end she triumphed. I applaud the author for baring her soul and sharing how she got her life right-side up again.
