Weekend Read: Heart of the Matter

Hmmm.... I am not quite sure what to say about this book.  I guess it hit a nerve.  One of the main characters in the book is a mother who struggles daily with the fact that she gave up her career to raise her children.  Meanwhile, her husband goes and cheats on her.  Don't worry, there is a lot more to the story, but that is what stuck.  Being someone that has put my career in the passenger seat and at times struggles with the fact that I have lost a lot of what I worked for, it sort of pissed me off that her husband felt that she had "changed" and found comfort somewhere else.  It did get a reaction out of me, which is what a book should do.  Totally get it.  And it does make you question, what would I do in this situation?  Stay with him?  Leave him?  We all have our opinions but you never know how you will react until it happens to you.  What did the main character do?  That is for you to read and find out....


  1. Hmm...sounds really interesting and I like this Author. Going on my library list!
