This book was different but it was okay. It's not what I considered erotic or hot and steamy, but more mellow. The story spans over some 13-15 years and it lets you see that not all cheating husbands do so just because they can. And that not all mistresses want to become 2nd wives or ignore their step-children. Personnally, I don't condone inifdelity in marriage, regardless of the reason, but this book help me see that there is always more than one side in story. It was an excellent read.

This story was cool but because one it's a story that happens far too often in real life. People stay with a person because they have a child or children. The marriage has been over or should have been over years ago and they hold on simply because of children but they lead separate lives and I'm pretty sure well to do/rich people do it more often than not because they have the money to carry on like this. Does the actions of Jade in this story coincide with my own morals no but I do understand how people get caught up in life. When you've been hurt and you find someone to ease that pain and you are understanding and accepting of their situation who is anyone to question that besides God. I didn't like how Charles kept prolonging the inevitable with the oldest son's mother but he came full circle. I just wish the ending was better but it fit with the story.

This story had real meat and depth for all of the characters even though I have a real problem with infidelity regardless of the reasons. But aside from that, this novel knocked it out of the park with how marriage, divorce, deceit, misunderstandings and pure hatred has a ripple affect to everyone around them. I loved that it was not so neat and tidey and their real obstacles for the couple and it spanded years not weeks. All of the flaws of individuals and triumphs were present. Excellent job handling racism both ways and the family dynamic with all of its imperfections. This story really delved deep into decision making and living with the consequences of them.
this is not for the faint of heart as far as story lines go. If you don't want truth and all the range and depth of emotion that makes you want to screem at the characters at times, then this is not the story for you.
