"This is an outlandish notion only if you don’t know how a person can destroy you by the simple act of disappearing."

"The swing set is rusted. The middle-class fence marks the boundaries of his prison. The wife is the warden. The children, well. They are the reason; it is for them that he chooses to remain unhappy, without you."

"Sometimes there’s nothing better on earth than someone asking you a question."

The stunningly told story of three different women in the USA, told with a force that , yes, only a woman can afford. Purely a man's read in my opinion, for those who think they know what women's desires are made of...

The best book I read for years I think.


Have a great holiday,
