The Way We Weren’t is a poignant novel about the compounding effect that one event or decision can have on the path of your life, as well as the inner strength that is necessary to step back and change your path.
Marcie and Will were teenage sweethearts, married just out of high school. Their friends envy their seemingly perfect marriage, and Marcie and Will agree, they have it pretty good. Until one day, when they find they want different things in life.
Marcie takes off on a mission to find herself, and makes friends along the way. The closest of these is Flint - a curmudgeonly old man. Flint finds Marcie in a bit of a predicament, and steps out of his comfort zone to help her. The banter between Marcie and Flint is entertaining, and I loved the rapport and understanding they developed for each other throughout the novel.
What is Flint’s purpose on Marcie’s journey? How will Marcie and Will reconcile their differences? Will Marcie find herself and happiness?
