Plot of the Novel:-
Lily Bloom, a recent college graduate, relocates to Boston in an effort to start her own floral business. Lily hated both of them since her recently departed father abused her mother and she covered it up. Reading through her old childhood journals, she is reminded of her first love, Atlas Corrigan, who left but made a promise to come back.
Ryle Kincaid, a neurosurgeon, is someone she encounters as she struggles with her emotions. Despite their shared attraction, they decide against starting a relationship since Lily wants a long-term relationship and Ryle wants a one-night stand. However, after Lily launches her company with success, they keep in touch and begin dating.
Ryle unintentionally drops a casserole one evening, and when Lily laughs, he throws her to the ground angrily before apologising hastily. While horrified, Lily decides they are not her parents and accepts his apologies, but she warns him that she will leave if he hurts her again. Lily is then reminded of her father’s treatment of her mother.
Atlas, the server at the restaurant where Lily and Ryle are dining, reunites with Lily. As soon as Ryle sees Atlas, he becomes envious, but Lily reassures him that he is just a friend. Atlas gives Lily his phone number in secret after observing Lily’s bruises and thinking that Ryle might be abusing her.
Atlas acknowledges that he still has feelings for her, but he has kept them hidden because to Ryle. Lily confides in her about the abuse after finally realising what her mother went through.
When Ryle comes back, Lily makes a shaky truce with him and enables him to support her for the last few months of her pregnancy, but she doesn’t feel particularly close to him. After Ryle’s late brother, Lily named her daughter who is born later. Following the birth of her child, Lily decides she doesn’t want her daughter to grow up seeing Ryle’s violent outbursts and requests a divorce from him.
She asks him how he would respond if their daughter confided in him that her partner was abusing her, and after much pleading, he finally sees things from her point of view and consents to the separation. Lily tells her daughter, “It ends with us,” in the hopes that she has finally put an end to the pattern of cruelty in her family.
In the epilogue, co-parenting couple Lily and Ryle locate Atlas and inform him that she is prepared to rekindle their romance.
Review of the Novel:-
The relationships are shown with compassion and honesty, Kirkus Reviews noted in a starred review, and the book “powerfully shows the destruction of abuse—and the courage of the survivors.”  Writing in Romantic Times, “The writer’s skill in combining upbeat, romantic, and depressing plotlines is perfectly demonstrated in It Ends with Us.
