DNF - Home Safe
Rated - DNF
Elizabeth Berg has gone from a hit and miss author to a mostly miss author for me. The characters and story in this book were so uninspiring that after about 40 pages I just gave up. I did try skipping to the middle and then to the ending to see if I could salvage something but it just wasn't there for me.
Helen Ames–recently widowed, coping with loss and grief, unable to do the work that has always sustained her–is beginning to depend far too much on her twenty-seven-year-old daughter, Tessa, and is meddling in her life, offering unsolicited and unwelcome advice. Helen’s problems are compounded by her shocking discovery that her mild-mannered and loyal husband was apparently leading a double life.
