Through It All by Kristyn Lewis.

If I told you this book was about domestic violence, financial difficulties and marriage breakdown you might think it would be a depressing read, but Through It All is a book about three strong women and the intensity of their friendship.

The characters are all very interesting.  I particularly enjoyed reading about Kate, who is supporting her husband through a campaign to become elected into government. Amy, lives with her husband and daughter in what she thought would be the perfect relationship, and Waverly is struggling to run her own business, a cafe making delicious treats including her near famous donut muffins, but without any support through her financial troubles.

I really enjoyed reading this book and once I got into the story I was holding my breath along with the characters, whizzing through the pages hoping for a happy ending.

Despite the heartbreak and worry experienced by Kate, Amy and Waverly the story is an uplifting one which shows that with the support of friends we can overcome the darkest events.

The back page blurb:
Waverly Brown is the anchor that keeps her tight circle of friends together. Loyal and generous with her time, she would do anything for Kate and Amy but she can't bring herself to tell even her best friends the truth about her bakery and her increasing debt. She's so consumed with her own worries that she almost misses what is right in front of her; something is wrong with Amy, terribly wrong.
Try as they might to reach out, Waverly and Kate can't make Amy open up to them. She refuses to admit there's anything wrong but Waverly is convinced Amy is in trouble and she's terrified. Can Waverly convince her friend to save herself before it's too late?
