It is rare that I feel I really must write a review. This book was really bad! I usually love Mary Jo Putney, but if you haven't read this one, please give it a pass. I sped read the beginning and kept thinking it must get better. It never did. I have never like rape in novels, I lost track of the number of times it was described, enacted or discussed in this book. The description of how the main character serviced her husband - really, does this have to be described at all? Just yuck! I used to keep Putney's on my shelf as a sure to fulfill "good read". No longer. I am kind of scared to open another after this one.
