Every book of Erich Segal is a delightful read and this one is no different. This book explores the relationship between as the title says, man and woman, woman and child and child and man. The only thing is that the child is not theirs, but is the result of his affair with some female on a business tour.
The story of the book is pretty simple...its about how a family accepts a child as their own....more importantly how the heroine accepts the child. I will not dwell more on the story!
What is more important about this book is the way it shows the relationships developing and breaking between people because of one incident. For example we have the hero who cannot just let go of his son, and there is the heroine who just doesn't seem to forgive her husband for his mistake. The story unfolds beautifully how eventually the heroine comes to terms with the child and how the child eventually gets approval from the woman.
Prose as I have said in an earlier review of Erich Segal's book is his forte. Again he displays his amazing way of writing by making the characters come alive with his prose. Though I do think that almost all characters of Erich Segal's books are very sentimental!!!
Though not in the class of love story or the class, man woman and child is still a beautiful book to be read and re-read!
