I think that for some readers, it may be hard to understand how Maribeth could walk out on her children. However, I appreciate that Forman gives us a character who does just that, and who grapples with that decision, but who also focuses on getting back to herself, instead of just continuing to be miserable and going further into the rut that she's in. While I didn't necessarily relate to the story on a personal level, I found this to be a very readable story with realistic characters, and I liked the focus on family dynamics.
