I totally thought Evelyn was going to commit suicide & she chose Monique to write her memoir because of it. The revelation about Monique's dad was a surprise though! What I didn't understand was when Evelyn said that she didn't have any regrets or sins, knowing full well what she did to Monique's dad. I thought that was either inconsistent to Evelyn's character or she is more cold-hearted than how I perceive her to be.
This is the kind of book that I typically wouldn't pick up from the bookstore. But, boy am I glad I selected it. I loved the characters, mostly Evelyn, and the story line. I liked how the book was broken down by each husband. It made the storyline feel on "topic." The seven husbands were the topic, but it was Harry & Celia who were the thread the tied it all together. This quote made me stop in my tracks. I read it over and over......" People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is "You're safe with me"- that's intimacy. " It made me think about the people in my life; who can I say THIS about? I love when books, especially fiction, make you start to evaluate different aspects of your own life. And make changes accordingly ;-)
I finished it in 16 hours!!! Couldn't put it down!!
