A bit lengthy
4 stars By sarah, Oct 10 2014
I listened to the audio version of this novel. Although it tends to be a bit longer than necessary, it is an enjoyable read. The author delves into the issues each character has with his and her family, and how their upbringing effects their marriage relationship. In a crisis, we all tend to act differently to the norm, and I appreciated the raw honesty that the author brought to each of the character's.
