Mary Monroe does it again with her thought provoking novels about life, challenges, love, pain and the willingness to persevere. I am not a fan of novels, but I would recommend this one!

God Ain't Blind by Mary Monroe

I always feel badly when I am disappointed in an ARC/ER book but must admit that was the case with this story.
The main characters in this book are two African American women in their late forties to early fifties. Long married with children, they have tired & become bored with their husbands or their husbands have become tired & bored with them. One of them has been having an affair with another man for twenty years and the other is just beginning her affair with another man. There is a lot of chatter between the 'girls' over their men; both their husbands and their lovers.
I took the opportunity to apply the Pearl Rule in this instance at about eighty pages into the book. It just didn't work for me. I didn't care at all about the characters which I do not find necessary to enjoy a book but I do need to find them interesting to a degree which in this case I did not.
I am sorry to say that I just did not like this book. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Mary Monroe has created a modern urban, female Ethan Frome who wrecks her marriage due to an affair. Older women can relate to the situation of a woman in her forties who succumbs to the flattery of a younger man. The situations and characters are vivid but believable, but Monroe's writing is often trite, wordy, and heavy handed. ( )

I almost stopped reading this book because it didn't seem to be going anywhere. But I kept on and it sucked me in like a cheesy soap-opera. I ended up liking the book and the quirky characters. ( )
