I'm compelled to rat about an obvious and annoying mistake. Page 227 says Lizzie is wearing billowy cotton pants and then a few pages later on 232 (same day) it says that her skirt is soaked and sticking to her legs. It's annoying that the author does this and then the editing team misses it. When people pay for books, I expect them to be better than sloppy editing.
Diana was the only character I actively disliked. She is a driven doctor, unhappily married to a man she met while on the rebound. The couple have a 6-year-old son named Milo who has Asperger's. Although the term is never used in the novel, it is clear that Milo has Asperger's. He wears a hat inside and outside of the house to block out noises; is bound to routines and eats only certain items. Diana has an affair with a med student that blows up in her face. I can't say I felt sorry for her when her lover jilted her. In her case, I thought it served her right. Harsh and judgmental, it is hypocritical on her part for her of all people to turns her back on her father for marital infidelity.
Lizzie, home from a rehab center in Minnesota is trying to pick up her life. She has sworn off substances and Diana hires her as a nanny for Milo. Lizzie and Milo bond and they go sightseeing throughout Philadelphia, where Diana has moved. Lizzie is a very sympathetic character. While Diana has long been harsh and unaccepting of her, I just loved it when Lizzie catches Diana and her lover in flagrante delicto. I thought it served Diana right, especially after she ousted Lizzie from her home.
Lizzie meets a really kind man in a coffee shop.Read more ›
