when first we practice to deceive! What an awesome book! It really gives insight into what being 'the other woman' really means! The agony of both females involved, I wasn't sure who to cheer on...the long suffering wife or Sandy! Brett is a weak minded character who can't make up his mind which side of the fence he wants to be on, so he plays both sides, and not even in a suave or even CAREFUL fashion! He literally parades Sandy right in front of his wife! No wonder she hated him so much! The writing is very good, however, it made ME want to smack the wuss right upside the head! Great work, Sammy and Diane! The ending is definitely a tear jerker...not since 'Love Story' have I cried so hard! awesome job! Makes me think you two lived it!
so true...this book shows the impact that having an affair has on everyone involved...and not just the two doing it. Sandy and Brett are two dysfunctional people, Sandy for thinking that she can change the alcoholic Brett...whose guilt keeps him from leaving his wife. Yet Sammy and Diane tell the story as if they have lived it, it seems way too real..and maybe that is for the best...writers write what they know. In the end, this book teaches a lesson.....in adultery, there are no winners only losers!
For reasons I'd rather not explain, I have found out that Diane Ganzer is not who she portrays herself to be. Therefore, as an author myself, I would not recommend reading any of Diane Ganzer's books.
