Hard to believe this is from the same author as Orphan Train . . . Although I listened to the entire audio book, I kept waiting for the "Aha" moment, which never came . . . the narration was excellent, which helped . . . the entire story unfolds like sessions in a marriage therapists office with each of the four individuals working through . . . or not . . . their childhoods, their marriages and their own feelings . . . what I really HATE is that no one ever takes any responsibility for their own choices and what those choices do to children. It is, it seems, all about "being okay with yourself". Having said that, this author IS a good writer, the issues that both these couples encounter are everything that happens to modern marriages. All the feelings, behaviors, sadness, betrayal are spot on. However, the lack of any resolution, any COMMITMENT to go beyond all the psycho babble is just a waste of a book.

Pace of book was too slow and I lost interest with a thin plot. Wound up turning off audiobook about 3/4 through. Seemed like author was trying to extensively use big words to make up for no plot.

I'm Not sure if it was the old ladies voice narrating this book, or the authors words but I kept thinking this book was set in the 50's.
Overall the book was dull, not much happened and it dragged. Sorry it was just hard work!!
