A provocative tale of family, heartbreak, friendship, and revelation. Tara Road explores every woman's fantasy: escape, into another place, another life.

An OK read but not as good as I expected it to be. Would not read again.

This was such a great book and I'm so glad that I found it. It was assigned for a book club I was in and typically I only read mystery and so I was skeptical. I would recommend that you not read the inside cover. I read it when I first started but by the time I got into it I had forgot what it said. The story of Ria's life is very attention grabbing and reading the inside cover only lets you know ahead of time what will happen. i believe it could ruin the suspense/surprise for you.

I hope this is helpful and that the size of the book does not deter you.

I've read this one twice! It's a real "tear-jerker" with characters you will love.

This is about a woman who marries a man and then he becomes rich while she stays home and takes care of the family. Eventually she ends up finding herself along the road to self discovery. Its a heartfelt story and a good read for a friend who has just recently divorced or who is going through a rough patch (or any woman really) :)
