Fran fell in love at nineteen. Her marriage was passionate, in both good ways and bad. When her dream life becomes a nightmare, she has to start over.

This is a powerful, evocative book, with strong characters and a thorough background. But UGH! That ending!

An engrossing read! I couldn't seem to put it down despite the lack of surprises in the plot and I rooted for Fran/Beth and her son Robert the whole way through.

Fair warning though: it is a fairly graphic protrayal of spousal abuse and the many reasons why abused spouses do not or cannot leave their abuser.

I liked the book, but I didn't like the ending. I guess it makes it more realistic, but it wasn't how I wanted it to end.

loved the book hated the ending.
Where is the justice? But these things happen in real life, just wish they did not.

From what I have read so far, this is a very powerful book. Also very hard to read, given the subject manner, so I am having a hard time wanting to pick it up. I have to be in a certain mood to read it; I am not reading it at the gym or beach!
