I usually enjoy books by this author but this book was so depressing, it was hard to read. It's about a woman whose whole life is built around being a wife to a man that didn't even make her happy. He passes away and she is lost, but not lost like she can't pay bills or things like that, she is wealthy and ver intelligent. She has even allienated her children. She makes many mistakes trying to find another man to marry, and she tries to reunite with her children but this book was so hard to finish for only a somewhat happy ending. This is not book I would recommmend.
