Sue Miller. She never disappoints.
I cannot put this book down. It is beautiful and gripping. All the characters are well developed and the way their lives are intertwined is quite interesting. I love Sue Miller!
It was ok until the husband died but continued to be boring after that.
I kept hoping it would get more interesting
Annie, becomes an unexpectant widow after thirty years of marriage. A backward glance at a marriage and a life both known and unknown. Beautifully written, complicated characters, engrossing and insightful.
When your husband of 30 years unexpectedly dies, and you find out he had a recent affair....
I felt like Sue Miller was talking directly to me in this book about marriage. Although I haven’t experienced the unfaithfulness in the story, which makes the title ironic. Her second marriage to Graham and their romantic side as well as their close friendship rings true for someone who has been married a long time. I, too, am friends with my husband’s first wife. Although, my husband has not died, I am grieving his loss as he slowly disappears to dementia. I loved the reflections of the grown children as they seek love and careers just as their parents did. They add to the richness of the story and help fill in the dimensions of Annie, as she tells her story of marriage to Graham. I listened to the audio version as I lay in bed. The tranquil voice, the story in which I had so much in common with Annie, the sorrow at loss I identified. And although, my husband didn’t have an affair, the f*cking demon, Dementia, has stolen my husband just as unfaithfulness seemed to steal Graham from Annie. I imagine that people’s response to this book will depend on their age and their life experiences. For older readers, Miller’s ability to capture the internal lives of the characters will resonate.
