Ellen Dempsey runs into her ex, Leo, on
the streets of downtown New York and it throws her into a
tizzy. She is happily married, or so she thought until
seeing her former flame again. His appearance makes her
question her marriage, her love, and her life.
Andy, a good man, who treats Ellen
well, is not just her husband, but her best friendís
brother. When Ellen starts questioning things about her
marriage, she turns to her best friend, Margot. The family
loves her, but the pull of her ex just keeps tugging on
her. Ellen tries to talk to Margot, but gets no sympathy.
Instead, she has to struggle through her feelings and decide
if she made the right decision when she let Leo go.
The entire story is about Ellenís
struggle and itís hard to read a book about what should be a
simple decision for a happily married woman. When her
indecision begins to affect her marriage, thereís not a lot
of sympathy for her since she is doing this to herself.
While many women will recognize themselves in the
over-thinking and constant questioning Ellen goes through,
it will likely annoy many others. If you enjoy reading
about the problems many women experience at one point or
another, this may be a good book for you
