This was a quick read, pretty light despite the not-light setup. Lucy is still struggling to deal with her husband's infidelity and contemplating divorce, when she finds out he is in grave health and won't live long. She ends up contacting some of his exes, both from before their marriage and during. The book brings up some very interesting topics about fidelity, love, family, forgiveness, and grief. Despite that, it doesn't dwell, isn't trying to be a tear-jerker, and in the end is life-affirming. A little more lightweight in moments than I'd like, with a fairly predictable ending, and some nice lines that stopped being so poetic when repeated, but I did enjoy it, overall.
