I read a few chapters and found myself exceedingly annoyed at the wife and husband for their lack of communication and total self-centeredness! Could not bring myself to continue reading even though this was my Chicklits Book Club selection for April!
Though this book was too drawn out, however, the lesson presented about marriage and the eagles was worth the read! I skimmed and even skipped pages, but will always remember the lessons about the eagles. Hmmmm....perhaps I should research eagles - they are a great example of marriage and commitment. Perhaps, if more couples were aware of this information, we, too, could soar like the eagles in our own marriages.
