I haven't read anything by this author before, but this book did not make me want to read anything else. How could Oprah have picked one of her books, I don't know. I guess I'll have to read that one. This one, however, was extremely disorganized, all over the place, and not very concise. There is no connection with the characters at all. I didn't even care that she lost a baby. She wanted to have an affair, he was probably having one, and they seriously hung on to an event that did not have anything to do with them! Just stupid.
