I was pulled in by the dramatic words and I had the impression that something extraordinary must have occurred between this woman, Jen Waite, and her husband Marco.
Several weeks after the birth of the couple 's first child, a childless, Jen Waite stumbled upon an email between her daughte and a woman..
Perhaps it did n't occur to her that this scenario of a marriage ending badly plays out every day and many people do not have the luxury of retreating to their childhood bedrooms in their grandparent' homes when life 's calamities occur.
Few people do not have the luxury of grief or self-pity as their lives and their children 's lives depend on their continuing to go through the otions of life, even if they do n't feel like doing so.
It was n't even Jen Waite 's self-indulgent attitude which bothered me most about this nove and caused me to actually talk back to her arration.
after researching online ( that is, she read several articles!) that the xplanation for her troubled marriage is that her husband Marco is a sociopath.
She then continues to refer to him as a sociopath throughout the ook.
I realize that sociopath is a term which is currently very popular in our cultural and many books have been written describing fool=proof ways you, too, can diagnose everyone in your life as having anti-social personality disorder.
And the hing I found most stonishing is that Ms. Waite mentioned her sociopathy theory to her therapist and the therapist readily agreed with her that marco was a sociopath.
I AM sorry Jen Waite chose a man for her life partner who turned out to be a liar and a cheat ...
