Meh I give the author credit for trying to be a little deep but somehow she didn t succeed The plot felt clicheed and predictable to me simply a longer version of its blurb with characters who didn t grab me and not much else to offerBrief summary if you read this paragraph you ve basically read the book Fanny forty something and facing the empty nest as her beloved college aged daughter departs for Australia is beginning to reevaluate her life of self sacrifice on the altar of her husband s political career She has worked hard to be the perfect politician s wife from painful regular appointments to dye her eyelashes so her mascara won t run in the pictures to giving up her own career to dealing with her husband s public and standing in for him periodically to forgiving her husband s one time dalliance to taking in her husband s alcoholic sister to live with them As the book proceeds Fanny is growing increasingly irritated with the demands of her Stepford wife role not to mention with her husband himself and with her intrusive and high maintenance live in alcoholic sister in law About halfway through the book her beloved father s death sends her into a tailspin She departs for her father s native Italy where she encounters her pre husband beau who is still attractive and amorous and she is faced with the decision of whether or not to return to the husband who has taken her for granted all these yearsThe book was slow and annoying to begin with Brief spates of dialogue would be interrupted by paragraphs of explanation of who the people were and what their relationship was The following is not a direct uote but this is what it read likeCan you please pass the butter Sacha I askedSacha was my nephew 23 years old He was visiting fromand had lived with us sinceHe was in universitySure said Sacha He turned to Chloe and askedChloe was Although I understood why the author was doing this it was really too obvious which I think is what got to me I ve read books which were much successful at both involving me in the story and clarifying the roles of the characters without getting on my nerves It was a bad start and I only got less interested as I read onThe idea of tracing a woman s trajectory from blissful blind love to uestioning her self sacrifice to mid life crisis has been done before but it still has potential Unfortunately although this book tried it didn t make it Buchan wanted to make Fanny s life and psyche complicated and I guess a little less clicheed a mother who abandoned her as a child with whom she still has a relationship the ambivalence re the alcoholic live in sister in law whom Fanny would like to kick out of the house but can t uite but somehow despite these various subplots and complications I found Fanny and her struggles kind of boring and nothing else in the book compensatedIt did make me wonder why some books manage to be deep or otherwise engaging and some books just don t I have read books with plots that were similarly typical but I didn t get as bored Maybe I liked the characters maybe the twists in the circumstances were interesting or better developed maybe the writing was better I don t know what it was exactly but whatever it was this book didn t have it
