  1. I ONLY WANT HAPPY THOUGHTS IN MY MIND~I COULD SO NOT READ THIS BOOK EITHER~I PREFER LOVE STORYS WITH HAPPY ENDINGS…BUT THATS JUST ME! EACH TO THEIR OWN~i'M AFRAID MY MIND WOULD GO BACK TO THIS BOOK ALL THE TIME~THAT MAY MAKE ME DEPRESSED…NO WAY! CAROL

  2. The funniest part: the author didn't know that most sociologists are unemployed. She wasn't into relevant life research at that point of her life, I guess. But the training helped her write this book, and probably the others, so she made up for her in-attention.
    I'm so old I agree with the other posters here,who don't want to read depressing books. I'm the same way. Give me a good fictional murder mystery, but not more of the awful real-life stuff i see in the news. If I were in a Maddie/James relationship, though, this book might be very helpful.
    Hey, there's rarely an occasion when there's not good and bad at the same time…and people who don't agree on what is good for them and what is bad for them.
    You reviewed it well, Brenda. Thanks for it.

  3. This sounds like a winner Brenda…if only more abused women would find someone to trust and help them instead on hiding it…just reach out and tell someone…

  4. What's the point of reading something or watching something to get depressed? Who needs the made up depressing drama?

    1. owww, do you only read, watch, listen to 'happy' news, Kathleen? I learn from reading, we need to open our hearts and minds to all parts of people's lives, happiness, depression, anger, violence ….

    2. You know Gayle, I worked for years in the mental health setting. I have had two friends that had children that committed suicide, one to drunk driving, one to cancer, one to drug overdose. Two people that were like family to me were murdered. I don't need to fiction to learn anything. Any fiction you can read or write doesn't come close to the devastation and broken lives that are left behind, No, I don't find it entertaining. That doesn't mean I'm simple minded.

    3. No one thinks anyone is simple-minded. I guess I'm just surprised at your vehemence. I review books for publishers. I read all kinds of books. This just happened to be one of them.
