The review of this Book prepared by MeLissa D. Adams

This was a fantastic read, a little outdated, but it tells the story of a divorcee who falls for a man who is considered taboo - her friend's ex-husband. While her friend deteriorates mentally, she tries to make her life happy again for her and her family.
