|Even after her husband George – after many years of the satisfactory marriage – suddenly leaves their marital bed in the most thrilling moment and moves to the guest room, Jeanie takes it with humbleness - if not with understanding. Perhaps it’s not a rare thing for most women. Maybe she did something wrong? Or is he in love with someone else? George refuses to talk about it. Days roll into weeks, then months. |
Romantic relationships between men and women are marvelous but usually don’t last long. One day, while walking in the park with her granddaughter, Jeanie meets Ray who seems to be everything George isn’t – a listener, easy to talk to – and sexy! Suddenly Jeanie feels attractive again. But she knows that her new passion threatens everything she holds dear and she must make a choice.
Family ties, dramas, secrets and lies - all weave their way though this beautiful and insightful novel written by Hilary Boyd – drawing on her own experience. Perhaps that’s why this novel received recognition from millions of women.
