Relationships and the issues of domestic violence and what keeps women going back the perpetrator. Well written and insightful. ( )

Not as engaging as most of Picoult's writing. At times I had a hard time wading through it. ( )

@ abusive relationship / stay or go
how to move on

To the outside world, they seem to have it all. Cassie Barrett, a renowned anthropologist, and Alex Rivers, one of Hollywood's hottest actors, met on the set of a motion picture in Africa. They shared childhood tales, toasted the future, and declared their love in a fairy-tale wedding. But when they return to California, something alters the picture of their perfect marriage. A frightening pattern is taking shape—a cycle of hurt, denial, and promises, thinly veiled by glamour. Torn between fear and something that resembles love, Cassie wrestles with questions she never dreamed she would face: How can she leave? Then again, how can she stay?

I was expecting another kind of ending to this heartbreaking story. The writing style of Jodi Picoult makes you fall in love with the villain if she wants you to.

Meet Cassie who is married to Hollywood heartthrob Alex Rivers. Everyone thinks that their life is PERFECT but the truth is far from perfect. Alex had suffered in his childhood, his parents were abusive and that made him an abuser. He loves his wife so much but he can't make himself stop. She loves him a lot and she cannot leave. ( )

Female anthropologist meets famous Hollywood actor on a movie set in Tanzania.
They fall in love, get married. He is an abusive husband and she stays with him in LA for three years and then disappears to South Dakota until their baby is born. She returns with the promise that he will get help. Of course he doesn't and she files for divorce. The book is about 200 pages too long. ( )
