I fell in love when I was 16.
I married him.
I thought life was good.
Now he’s dying.

I married an addict.
I didn’t know it at the time.
She hid it well.
Now she could die.

When Bernadette—Birdie—Chapman and Beck Griffin meet in grief counseling they have an instant connection. For Birdie, it’s a comfort to share her feelings with someone who knows what she’s going through. For Beck, it’s an outlet, someone who understands his anger.

But neither is prepared when they fall in love.

And the guilt is almost too much to bear.

Thursdays—a love story of two broken hearts that find each other…and try to become a whole…


Harper Bentley has taught high school English for 24 years. Although she’s managed to maintain her sanity regardless of her career choice, jumping into the world of publishing her own books goes to show that she might be closer to the ledge than was previously thought.

Sonja's Review

Well, I just finished Thursdays and it's one of those books where I can't write a normal review. It's different and I can't do it the same way I do all the others. And I know what I want to say but then I don't, so I guess I should just start at the beginning. 

I was really nervous about Thursdays after reading that synopsis, but Harper Bentley is one of my favorites,  so I decided to go ahead and read it. And I can honestly say that I do not regret reading it although I kind of want some ice cream and to read something happy right now, but that's besides the point. The point is - yes, this book is hard to read, sometimes it's depressing, sometimes it's frustrating, it will make you cry and feel like your heart's been ripped out and stomped on and no, it doesn't end on a happy note for right now, but I didn't have a bad time reading Thursdays all the time. It even made laugh really hard a couple of times, so while it might be dark and there's no light at the end of the tunnel just yet, it's still worth the read because there are light moments, there are happy times and I really loved reading about them. 

If you want a book that will make you feel both the good and the bad, then you should pick Thursdays up. It's just real and there was so much that I loved, respected, and admired about the way that Ms. Bentley wrote this book. It truly is amazing and I will definitely read the next book, although I will admit that I'm glad that I have a little break before I read it.
