We’ve Come Undone is the same book as What Love Becomes with a refreshed title and cover.  The trailer accurately reflects the book’s content.

We’ve Come Undone (formerly titled What Love Becomes) is a work of literary fiction that traces the intimate landscape of two contemporary marriages from their idealistic, yet misguided beginnings. Each couple mistakenly believe their happily ever after will come without really knowing who’ve they’ve married.

What begins as self-deception quickly morphs into deception on a larger scale. Over time, their wounds come to define them—a marine, chronically ill from pills he took in the Persian Gulf War to protect him from Sarin gas, a ballet dancer whose ambitions are crushed by a single encounter, a woman desperate to have a baby, a man whose wife barely tolerates him and can’t bring herself to love their child. Long simmering tensions ultimately explode and the couples’ lives intertwine as the novel weaves through past and present. At its heart, this story is about the choices we make, how they shape our lives, and how our innate resilience propels us toward reclaiming the lost parts of ourselves.

 

Sue Johnson rated it amazing.
What Love Becomes is spellbinding. I couldn’t put it down. Brilliant character development. The underlying psychology is flawless and unstintingly thorough, which I appreciate. These people are so real, their intertwinings are utterly convincing, their connections plausible. Puts me in mind of Iris Murdoch and Doris Lessing.

 

Once Tramontano has captivated you with her story telling, she compels you to pay attention to humanity’s foibles. Her marvelous writing is stunningly insightful. Perceptive little nuggets are subtly seeded throughout. Wonderfully empathetic. Satisfying, entertaining, compelling. I ate it up in one bite. A goooood read. (less) · see review

Jan Marin Tramontano is a gifted writer. This is a story about love, marriage and all relationships. The author has created a novel that interweaves the personal stories of several individuals from various backgrounds who are searching for healing and love. Each character is recovering from experiences and situations that have left them wounded in some way. We see the strengths and weaknesses in each one. The characters are well developed by the author and very realistic. I think we can see a little of ourselves and those we know and love in each one. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who believes in second chances, new beginnings and true love. It is a story about life.
