Book Review - The Senator's Wife

Well, I've been busy reading again.  I suppose the cooler weather has made me want to curl up with a book (and not do much else...lol).

This book is another fiction book.  I've read another of Sue Miller's works, "While I Was Gone," and I like it so I thought I would give this one a try.  Her characters truly come to life.  I was captivated by their lives and was able to read this book fairly quickly because it really did draw me in.  Even so, I don't know that I would recommend this book to others.  I'm at a lost as to how to explain this... I can't say I didn't like the end, I would have preferred another conclusion, but I didn't write the book.  But that's not the reason I wouldn't suggest this book.  A situation in the book, closely tied to the conclusion, was, well, strange and embarrassing.  I know, that doesn't make sense... let's see if this does it... two characters engage in a behavior that leads to the conclusion of the book but I thought that the author could have come to the same conclusion without including some of the details that she did.  Okay... that's as much as you'll get out of me.  If you need more details, you can email me... LOL!

All righty!  Next post will be a book review as well, "The Power of Less."  I need to "sit" with it a little bit longer before I write my review though.  Look for it in the next few days... I'm sure you can't wait... LOL!

In love and recovery,
