While Mitch has many flaws, he has unwaveringly stood by Sonja’s side, and that is what Sonja and Rachael chose to highlight in the book. Mitch is an extremely private person, but shared as much as he did to support Sonja’s mental health advocacy work. Sonja chose to be unfiltered and raw about her life experiences, but that is not expected, nor should it be, for her loved ones.
Many editors wanted to combine chapters or add more content. Sonja was insistent that the chapters remained short, faced paced, sometimes disorienting, and a rush of emotions mimicking aspects of the bipolar disorder. To keep the series consistent, the other books follow a similar feel.
An Impossible Wife without question. Mitch wanting to help people, support Sonja’s advocacy work, and what he felt comfortable sharing was a constant conversation. Sonja also feels very protective of Mitch. Their love is a deep one that was bonded through great struggle. He is the rock of the family. Mitch is a rare man. Sonja is fully aware that 99% of men would have walked away and she would not blame them for doing just that. Rachael re-wrote that entire book 5 different times because of how painful it was for Mitch to re-live those moments. It almost didn’t get published.
