All about her....
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This book was such a huge disappointment. The author is chained to a victim status by her own mind. Her ex-husband's choices may have been difficult for her to accept and adjust to but she has no dignity in her unsuccessful efforts to move on. She blames him/her for her misery when it is so clear she is just a miserable and needy person, taking it out on him/her and their children in the cruelest ways. Her self involvement was so sickening and hurtful that I couldn't finish the book. I was looking forward to hearing this story from the ex-wife's point of view but this was just a sad woman with no clarity or heart.
What could Christine Benvenuto have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
take responsibility for herself.
What three words best describe Renée Raudman’s performance?
