's review

liked it

This book received many conflicting reviews. Personally, it made me think about lots of things that I'd rather not face, like the sudden death of my spouse, how that would change my relationship with my children and how I would now have to handle all the day to day things that were always taken care of for me. I felt that many of the negative reviews were written by women who, for one reason or another, had to rely solely on themselves and therefore could not relate to Helen's situation. One reviewer called it a "brain resting book" and in a way, it was. There was no exquisite writing, plot twists or character development that many other books exhibit. But, it shows how life can change in the blink of an eye and what major life changes follow. Personally, I think Elizabeth Berg writes for the everyday woman, creating scenarios in which we could all find ourselves. Then the question becomes, how might I react?
