    Too slow

    Good, but it took me forever to get through one chapter.

    Incredibly disappointing

    I had high expectations for this book after it was recommended to me, but when I finally read the book it was awful. The story wasn't developed well and at the very beginning it was confusing to distinguish what the author was trying to say. Then the ending was lackluster at best. Sienna's story was the most interesting but it got way too repetitive, her and her husband arguing about the same thing over and over again. You already know how it's going to end before you've finished the book. Usually, this is not necessarily a bad thing, but the road to the ending was plagued by bad writing, confusion, and general indifference to the characters.

    Songs, poems, essays, and books have been devoted to the question of what it is a woman wants. Perhaps it's best that this question remains unanswered as quite often the woman herself does not know. In Elizabeth Buchan's latest novel we find two very different women faced with this dilemma. A pair of expert voice performers, Ruth Moore and Katherine Kellgren, relate the stories of these women in alternating chapters. The upshot? As far as decisions facing a woman, there haven't been many dramatic changes in a half a century. It seems that while many would like to have it all - few, if any, have figured out to do it. Our story opens with Siena, a very today woman, with a successful career. She's involved in the tough-to-stay-on-top fashion world, and there's a lucrative television deal in the offing. Her husband, Charlie, is a fine man. Only thing is he has different aspirations, such as a country life and children. What's Siena to do? On the other hand, Barbara Beeching lived almost fifty years ago. She's the mother of two adult children, and married to Ryder. A favorite of both friends and family, she's generous, accommodating, and content. At least she thought she was content until she spied a handsome younger man who is strongly attracted to her. Another choice. Women will especially respond and relate to Siena and Barbara as they face critical issues at midpoint in their lives. - Gail Cooke
