This book has to have one of the most annoying child characters in the history of literature. As well as no likable characters. ( )

My last book for 2007. I am discussing this book at my book club. If you're interested, read my thoughts, and the thoughts of the other members, there:

I rather liked the cover image – hung out to dry. A troubled marriage, first infertility, then infidelity. The story was a sensitive look into a marriage unraveling, though amicably enough, with the circumstances and choices played out. ( )

The characters are solid but I thought the plot was unadventurous and predictable. Midlife crises make boring books when nobody goes entirely mad. ( )

I absolutely loved "Good Grief" and was so excited to read another book by Lolly Winston. Unfortunately, this was just ... blah. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 044669939X, Paperback)

The New York Times bestseller about how marriage, love, and how sometimes falling in love with the wrong person at the wrong time can be the right thing. Elinor Mackey has lived her life in perfect order: college, law school, marriage, successful corporate career. But when she discovers that she and her podiatrist husband, Ted, can't have children, Elinor withdraws into her own world of heartbreak and anger. While Elinor
falls in love with the oak tree in their front yard, sleeping under it at night, Ted begins an affair with Gina, the nutritionist at their gym. Ted, who may be the only one who can help Gina and her son, suddenly finds himself in love with two women at the same time. In the tradition of Anne Tyler, John Cheever, and Tom Perrotta, Winston's second novel looks beyond the manicured surface of suburbia to a world of loss, longing, lust, and betrayal.
