An interesting old skool romance; sexist as hell, mind you, but interesting. Lisa ran away from her husband Steve after he became convinced she’d been unfaithful to him; now he’s found her and is determined to get her back. But Lisa is afraid he will never truly believe or forgive her, and will continue to punish her forever.

Lamb seems to be trying to add depth to her typical old skool crazy here, perhaps even analyze it a bit. There’s a lot of attention paid to secondary characters and a lot of dialog and discussion about motivations, character, and so on. It’s heavy on the telling, rather than the showing, and parts of the commentary about the nature of men and women made my grit me teeth, but I respected the effort she put into writing something a little less ordinary and more thoughtful.
