This story is, in one word, painful. Edward and Bella are in their late 20s, have been married for a short number of years, and reside in New York City. The circumstances surrounding their marriage aren't very clear, but shortly after the story begins the duo commutes to Colorado (where Edward's family resides) to a funeral. Secondary characters receive an introduction at that time, and after a few chapters it becomes very clear that these two are miserable together. They put on a show for those on the outside, but when it's just the two of them alone in Edward's parent's farmhouse, long periods of silence punctuated by shouting and tears comprise their union.
Chrometurtle does an incredible job of sucking the reader in and getting them to feel all of the emotions that the characters in this story express. The situations the characters encounter are realistic, and as the story unfolds, readers get a very clear presentation of why everyone is the way they are.
There's no guarantee of a happily ever after with this one, but for those who enjoy angst and don't mind shedding a tear (or a hundred), this is an amazing read. The story is a work in progress, so it will continue to unfold as time goes on.
