Not the best presentation

A little disjointed. I liked the idea, and the story line of each character, but the way it was presented was confusing. And the postscript at the end was highly unnecessary. Overall, though, it was a nice story.

Engaging Premise Goes Nowhere

Would you try another book from Lee Smith and/or Linda Stephens?

Not from Lee Smith; the writing was adequate at best. The concept promised more than it delivered.

The End of the Affair

Which scene was your favorite?

The account of Catherine's mother.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not many. The characters were only partially drawn. With the exception of Catherine's overarching regret, I never did get any sense of the characters' motivations.
