So I'm a little suprised at how much I adored this book. It's not what I think of as "high fiction" which (I think is my own made up word, but might be real. Who knows).
Anyway, I am becoming quite taken with the south, despite the fact that I abhor its politics and don't ever really want to live there. Books about the south have cropped up several times for me this year.
This book is more about Southerners than the south. I loved the main character, and in a rare turn of events was really rooting for her to have an affair. You'll have to read it to find out if she did.
