Your house is on fire. Your children will burn.

Your house is on fire. Since the plane had taken off late from Chicago, Daria had been dividing her time between worrying about her younger daughter Tracy, who had gone away to college for the first time, and Nina, who had sounded more depressed and lonely than usual on the phone last night. Was Nina really sick? Or just unhappy?

It's hard to miss with Marge Piercy and this book is no exception. Very well written, but I found this one to be not quite up to her usual standard. The main character seemed, to me, not fully realized, given the circumstances she found herself experiencing.

Marge Piercy is one of those writers who defies categorization. But whether she's writing poetry, science fiction, or historical epics, her work is always imbued with her unwavering political and moral convictions. Since the late 1970s, she has been a champion of women's stories, often using her writing as a way of addressing important (and sometimes controversial) feminist or social issues. As Gloria Steinem wrote in a 2015 essay, Marge Piercy is "a fierce and devoted activist who wants us to be more than passive readers.

Successful Boston cookbook author Daria Walker, whose greatest pleasures are her home and family -- and who loves her husband deeply -- is devastated to learn he wants a divorce. Now she must put her life back together. But as she strives to understand the life she is losing, Daria must face the shocking truth behind the smooth facade of her prominent attorney-husband, Ross -- and recreate her own values, her own sense of family, and herself.
I was enjoying the book initially until I looked at the reading progress percentage and it was 22%. I was expecting it to be around 70%. It is so long, repetitive, and tedious. I didn't much like or believe in Daria or any of her family. It is not poorly written. although there are too many typos. It is just such a slog and ultimately inconsequential--I finally gave up. There are too many good books waiting to be read.

I really enjoyed this book because the people were so real, so believable, in their words, actions and interactions. The plot was engrossing. I didn't expect it to become a mystery, and I don't usually gravitate towards mysteries, but it turned out to be one, in a way. We did know "whodunit" right away, but it was interesting how it played out.

Slowly writer
That truly is what this book is about, if you live with someone over 20 years there should be more substance to the marriage, if you love your spouse as much professed in story then you work and see bumps. This book so frustrated me, although I do think it is well written, just to drawn out. There was not much loyalty in this marriage for each to find someone else to get into bed with.

One of my favorite Marge Piercy novels. I like it so much that I bought the Kindle edition even though I also own the hardbound and paperback.

I got this because of loved "Gone to Soldiers" and wanted to try another book by this author. While much of it was engaging, and she's certainly a good writer, one of the characters was really hard maintain my interest in. Also, beware in Kindle edition there are tons of typos.

Well developed characters, storyline, and pace easy to become part of. Believable relationships and maturity of female characters. Highly recommend.

This book, although the plot was great, got lost in words. So many descriptions that were unnecessary to the telling of the story; I.e. antics of kittens playing. Many parts were long winded and boring.

I liked it. I thought it was a bit long-winded but it did keep my interest.
