Review by

I was infuriated at Rosie for not fighting. She didn't yell, scream, or pitch a fit about losing her husband and job to Minty. If there is one thing I hate it's a woman acting like a door mat. But Rosie didn't act like a door mat. She fought when she needed too and gave in when she felt like it. She picked up the pieces of her battered heart and went on living. In the end she became a stronger woman then Minty will ever be no matter how often she goes to the gym.
