The beginning was kinda terrible but I'm glad I kept going. The story got better, and I started to care what was happening, and then I got slapped in the face with an ending as stupid as the start. Ugh.

A look inside a woman's life in which she is struggling to hold on to a defunct marriage to an alcoholic. A fast, good read that makes you wonder "what would I do?" The fact that she is a tutor to college sports athletes gets a little long and tiresome but, other than that, I would say a very good novel about that weird thing we call love and just what we are willing to put up with to have it.

This book was really good, but moved a little slow. It didn't suck me in like some other books have in the past, but I knew that I wanted to finish it.

It's a great love story that isn't romantic in a conventional way, but earns your respect. The story really depicts love as it is in real life- something that cannot be fully understood or described.

If your significant other is a drunk or some other kind of addict, you must read this book. No, it won't solve your problems -- but it will soothe you for a while and make you see that you DO have the power to do something about it.

I enjoyed this book, though I did skip over some of the talk about Faith's job as a tutor to athletes at a university. It was her story on her life with her alcoholic husband Jay and how she coped with it.

I bought this book at the thrift store thinking the title was silly. The book turned out to be really good!! Granted, the subject matter of a marriage in jeopardy was a bit above my head at 15, it was still a great book.

I searched the library catalog for soup cookbooks, & found this book with a 1999 copy right. It's good & to out of date even in 2014.

I read this book many years ago and remember very little about it, so I cannot say if I liked it or not...may have to read again when I have the time.
