Wait for Me, Jack by Addison Jones

It was a fact that who you married altered you. It mattered very much how that person changed you.

Warm, funny and devastatingly perceptive about men and women, Wait for Me, Jack follows the fortunes and failures of Jack and Milly and reveals a few truths about love and marriage.
