Anyone else wonder why Tracy didn't just kick Jed out of her life? I mean, seriously...a couple of different times in the book it talked about how she had packed up her things to get away from him and I'm thinking wait...it's YOUR house Tracy. Presumably it's YOUR name on the mortgage/lease. So what the eff? Kick his butt out and move on.
Lisa Yes you are right. She was insecure I guess. And that was hard to believe because she was a supposedly a feisty woman that owned a yoga business.
Karen I am about 2/3 of the way through this book and this relationship bothers me. In fact, all of the "secrets" in this book bother me. They seem contrived. Kit and Annabel, Kit and Steve, Tracy and Jed, Charlie and Keith. Just too many undercurrents. I'll finish the book and hope for the best.
This answer contains spoilers… (view spoiler)[There are a lot of problems with the writing in this book, but what is authentic is the description of a woman who is confident in all areas of her life EXCEPT in the abusive relationship. It's very typical for a victim of domestic violence to become completely controlled by the abuser after being physically, emotionally and mentally beaten. The author missed an opportunity to help the reader understand this phenomenon. But she missed a lot of other opportunities, too. (hide spoiler)]
