About: Skipping a Beat is the story of a marriage. Julia and Michael meet under unusual circumstances and fall in love while still in high school. After graduation they head toward their future without so much as a backward glance. After college they follow their dreams and enjoy the rewards of their hard work – to a point. It seems that somewhere along the way Michael lost sight of what was once so important – Julia and their relationship. He’s forced to take a new look after he has a near-death experience. Julia isn’t sure what to do with the new Michael. She’s grown accustomed to their ships-in-the-night marriage and hasn’t expected anything from him in a long time. She’s certain that her perspective of some events in their marriage is the actual truth. Since they rarely have time for meaningful conversations Michael has been unaware of her perspective. He doesn’t understand why she doesn’t want to join him in a second chance at their life.
Recommend? Yes, definitely! I also recommend having a box of tissues at hand (trust me on this).
