About the book:
Eve is eight months pregnant and in the middle of a Thanksgiving celebration when she discovers that her husband Jonathan has developed an intimate relationship with a woman over the past year. Jonathon asserts his innocence (an affair involves physical intimacy, and he didn't have any), while Eve feels deeply betrayed by the emotional connection he shared with someone else. What Jon has done seems so terrifyingly out of character that Eve finds herself questioning her entire reality. Did she ever really know Jon at all? Was their happiness together a lie? Is emotional intimacy more forgivable than sexual intimacy? And can their marriage survive?
I wanted to like this book. However, I couldn't even finish it. I tried, but there is significant, vulgar profanity which never improves a story. For me, it was hard to get beyond. I also really didn't care for Eve. She wasn't very likeable to me and I found myself annoyed with her, more than anything else. The author is a marriage and family therapist and the plot and premise sounded fascinating. I wish I could have enjoyed it.

I am having vision issues which are terrifying to someone whose work and interests lie in reading and writing. Because of this, I am falling behind in some of my reviewing commitments and ask for your support and patience.
