Not the book I expected, but rewarding nonetheless. Leslie and her husband, Matt, have been married for 18 years and have slowly lost their way to each other, until, in crisis, Matt leaves. The book shifts perspectives, so we hear from both parties, and from their extended family as well. Leslie has carried the job security for the family, and her growing discomfort with her tenured professorship is contrasted against her certainty that the family obligations require her to stay put. A well-written study of a contemporary woman and her marriage, and one which had a lot of resonance for me. Nicely done.
