I couldn't get into this book and gave up after 70 pages. It's a little slow and too detailed for my tastes.
I could not get into this book at all. I felt like the main character was whining the entire time.
This was so-so. I'm very fussy about my fiction--must be well-written, believable--and this basically met those qualifications. Not sure I would have made the same choices as the main character, and I could not stand many of the people in her life, including her daughter and her long-ago love, who conveniently resurfaces after 25 years. Also can be slow in places.....but decent read nevertheless.
Middle-aged with a husband who finds someone new, Rose deals with various emotions as she learns to "start over". Revenge can certainly be sweet!
Revenge may or may not be sweet, but surviving and going onward and upward certainly are. Rose is someone hidden inside most of us (gals) and her growth in the face of some really lousy breaks is uplifting.
