It turned out to be great therapy and a push to take my marriage to the next level. The discussions we had around this book and the issues it raises only strengthened my convictions about marriage and what it takes to make it work.
Elyse and her friends struggle to find out who they really are. Did they marry for love or to find a "life" that they wanted?
"What would happen if a woman was completely herself within a marriage?"
That is an excellent question and one that requires that she actually KNOWS exactly who she is.
As some of her closest friends begin to realize that their seemingly harmless weekly banter about unhappy marriages has gone to a whole new level for Elyse, it stirs up emotions in each one of them that they'd rather not deal with. Because it's one thing to be unhappy, but it's a whole other thing to actually do something about it. Wright does a beautiful job questioning whether a marriage can only be successful if both parties embrace mediocrity and asks what truly defines happiness-and do parents even have a right to try to find it?
While the premise of LOVE IN MID AIR may sound familiar, what makes it so compelling is Wright's subtle yet intense writing, which may make the reader both uncomfortable and intrigued at the same time. Wright navigates Elyse's everyday life and relationships with her church book club with such authenticity that you'll be thinking about these characters long after you've finished. A must read for any wife or mother, Wright's genius commentary is not to be missed.
Love in Mid-Air is more of an analysis of the demise of a marriage than about anything else. The prose reads like poetry at times (for example, the scene on the church steps) and is so thought-provoking, I couldn't get my mind off this book for days afterwards.
Kim Wright excels at showing and not telling her readers about the characters, and presents a thought-provoking glimpse into relationships. Highly recommended!
