I have just finished reading this book by Camille Pagan and it was one of those that I did not want to put down. The story is not new, a husband decides to leave his wife after 25 years and she is left wondering why? The telling is. Pagan is funny, sad, sarcastic, hysterical, somber, reflective, silly, humorous, adventurous, tearful, kind and very human on almost every page. It's not a deep book and does not get lost in philosophical or spiritual retreats, but she shows great insight and sensitivity in the way she draws and develops her characters. They are all very believable. it is hopeful, entertaining and Pagan knows women, relationships and the push-pull involved when a love is both old and new.
