I read this book some years back ...but I still remember it like it was yesterday. Some of us might not like the story-line because of what she did..but drama like this does happen in real life. Real or fiction I don't like cheaters. With that said the story was on point. For me it was deeply moving, believable, raw, sumptuous, delightful and the characters were realistic. it was a pleasure to read.

I didn't like it that much, I can't relate to anything she was going through.

This book was very different than what i believed. It was delightfully well written and the story of the woman through crossroads in life by a younger man and her husband was a great read
