    Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon.

    Debby says: "Plenty of Saccharine and neurotic characters"
    "Annoyed. Disappointed."

    Story

    This book isn't about one couple, but is about an ensemble of several couples with equal attention. It also felt like it should fall into the 'inspirational/religious' category even though religion wasn't mentioned. It strongly emphasized traditional roles: the women do the cooking and the cleaning, and the men take care of the women. With so many stories going concurrently, with similar dynamics, it quickly felt like I was being preached to about the ideal family and the proper, responsible behavior of each person in that family.

    The reader did a very good job, and if this type of story appeals, then it would be enjoyable. For me, it was not what I was expecting, and I found it pushy and increasingly annoying.
