Review by

I knew that this book was going to be a train wreck ten pages in but I couldn't stop myself. There was something fascinating about this simple marriage and the husband who became so narcissistic. Perhaps he was... all along and it took Anna to bring it out where we could really see it.The story is about a family of four: father, mother, son & daughter. The son is a lothario, bringing home a different blonde to Sunday Dinner weekly. That is until he meets Anna. The daughter is a nice sweet British lass who has her head on right.The mother and father are a relatively boring couple who do everything just right. That is until the son brings Anna home.This isn't a book you will like but you will perhaps be fascinated by it as I was, horrified by it as I was, appreciate the writing as I did and find a new author to read as I did.I rated this one 3 1/2 stars and recommend it to a select group of readers.
