The Little French Bistro by Nina George

Her life is not her own.  She lives in her husband's shadow and does whatever he allows her to do.  She's been doing that for years and she suddenly despairs.  She tries to drown herself.  Unfortunately, someone saves her...

Crown Publishing and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 13th.

When she wakes up in the hospital, all her husband has to say is how much she has embarrassed him and he's leaving without her.  She can come home after the hospital releases her.  She doesn't wait for the hospital to release her.  She sneaks out and begins a journey to a town she's never seen before except in a picture.

Starting life over with nothing is not an easy thing to do.  Especially since she never had any freedom at home.  She's just lucky enough to find a restaurant that could use another worker.  They even have a room she can use for no charge.  

It doesn't take long for her to make friends.  The villagers welcome her, take her under their wings, and help her move on from the past.  The problem is the past is following her.

Just when she's feeling secure, in love (maybe for the first time), and enjoying her life, her husband shows up.  He didn't even recognize her at first because a friend had updated her hair and another one helped her buy clothes.  But when he does, he asks her for a second chance.  She runs again.  But not far.  She has to decide, once and for all, how she wants to live the rest of her life...
