This sounded like a good book and though the reviews were very mixed I went ahead and read it. At the beginning of the book we have Pippa Lee, aged about 50, perfect wife of a much older publisher, perfect mother of grown-up twin children. Then the story goes back to show Pippa's childhood and what she got up to before her marriage. Nothing wrong with that. The idea of showing the flaws of the woman who became the model wife and mother is nothing new but could make a perfectly good story. My problem here was that I just felt there was no substance to the book. Yes, Pippa wasn't perfect to start with. I was expecting that. But I guess I was expecting something else too.
