There are books that are about sad or deep topics that make you think, but don't bring the mood down and then there are books that just quite bring the mood to the pits. This one is of the latter group. What a debbie downer that left me hoping that no one would compare me with Evvie and her crazy antics to get her estranged husband back. Evvie went to the ends of the earth to try to repair her marriage that was holding on by a string until the string broke. She went above and beyond, hence the title to try to get her husband back in their home and in love with her. I respect her ideas to try to repair, but she did some crazy things. I rarely read reviews of books before or during reading it, but this one made me stop and see if I was the only one that wasn't enjoying Evvie and her craziness. Maybe I am. Has anyone else read this? Am I alone in my thoughts?

I enjoy off beat and quirky, but the main character was so abnormal it was painful to read. Unbelievable, off the spectrum dialogue with the same repetitve theme. The story is supposed to be about a woman's desperate slip into madness and losing her grip on reality due to her husband leaving her. The woman was bizarre all her life so it's hard to understand why her husband put up wth her ever. This was a waste of my time, I'd give it one half star if I knew how to.

I really enjoyed going along on Evvie's decent into madness. I can't say this book is for everyone but if you are a woman who suffered from depression and came out on the otherside you will appreciate this well written account of loss and dispair.
