Loved it. Slow start, but by the time I got to the middle I could not put it down. About infertility and the toll it takes on a couple as well as infidelity. I really felt bad for the 10 year old boy who's parents were never in the same home with him and the feeling of not being wanted by his dad. In the end the main character feels great empathy for everyone, including he husbands mistress.

This arthor has a very good writing style and I loved the way she took it back and forth between the characters points of view.

I debated on saving this book in my keeper shelf but I believe that I should put it out there to be shared with other PBS readers.

Kept me engrossed, even though the plot twists at times were a bit unbelievable. Interesting cast of characters; sympathies alternated back and forth among them all. Covers all the bases: infertility, extra-martial affair, stages of a marriage, boy trying desperately to make his world 'right'...

Loved this book. It was a quick read since it was one of those books that you just don't want to put down. It's funny and sad all at the same time and all in all a really good read.

Great book! I enjoyed how infidelity was viewed from all perspectives and there was no one guilty person, just the realism of life. The characters came alive and were all relatable.

This book was well written from both perspectives but had a bad ending. Nothing was told at the end it was very abrupt ending as far as i was concerned. The ending ruined the book for me.
