it was amazing

I loved this book! I put off reading it, even though I'm on an Anna Quindlen kick, because I didn't think I wanted the heavy subject matter. I hate reading books that make me feel worse after I've read them. In Anna Quindlen's form, the book is thoughtful and introspective without being gruesome. I like the way Quindlen gets you inside her characters heads. I didn't finish the book thinking that that the main character (Franny) was weak, but that she was a strong woman. I thought it was an honest look at an abusive relationship from the eyes of the abused spouse. Read it, and don't worry about being inundated with horrific abuse scenes. They are few. I liked the 'finding yourself' core of the story, and enjoyed the novel very much!
