I have finished three paper books recently, very different from each other but enjoyable in their own way.
|Five Days by Douglas Kennedy, April 2012, Atria Books|
Genre: contemporary fiction, romance, family drama
Laura and Richard are both in unsatisfactory marriages and they also have troubled sons going through personality and personal crises. When the two both visit Boston for five days for a conference and for business, they meet while at the same hotel and romantic sparks begin to fly as they discover how alike they are.
Laura and Richard reveal their secrets to each other - their pasts, their unhappy present, and what they envision their future to be. We wait to see how this will unfold.
The romantic and the realistic come together as the novel focuses on these two personalities, how they handle the limits they have put on themselves, and their wish to change their lives.
I rated this four stars.
