This story is about two people who have secrets and yet are married. I liked how Milan makes these two characters struggle. There are no magic answers in this book. At the end, Ned still struggles, but has learned to struggle with Kate. I thought that was a wonderful and hopeful message.
The edition I read is an enhanced version that includes some additional material from the author including deleted scenes, commentary, pictures and some small audio clips. While these enhancements are not extensive, they are an interesting addition. For example, I learned how difficult this book was for Milan to write and how many problems she still had with it.
I did enjoy most of the book, like the characterizations, plots. So I gave it 3 stars.
I will kinda recommend this book, but the choice is up to you.
Not excellent, but passable.
This was a book about abuse: mental, physical, self-inflicted and abandonment. As always, Milan is engaging with her themes and how she metes them out through her writing, characterization, personification, setting, and inner monologue. But this book climaxed and then restarted more than once; both in the plot and subplot. Tension snapped early in act two and never re-tightened enough for me to be fully engaged. We're told as writers to leave a scene at a twist, but there was finality to the scenes she wrote and then a whole new movement came in the next chapter.
Milan released Ned and Kate's sexual tension at the oddest of moments. I was greatly disappointed in how easily Kate let Ned off the hook for his three year abandonment without a word or letter to her -yet he could write to Jenny. Hells to the naw! Also, Ned's affliction, written so perfectly in Proof by Seduction, fell flat for me here. I lurve a flawed hero and wanted to root for him, but I couldn't. All the worst of his depression and its affects happened off screen and was retold near the end of the book.
Still, I liked the humor and wit of these two characters and the climax of the subplot was entirely satisfying.
