Shelves: contemporary-fiction , reads , i-own , erich-segal Erich Segal is one of my fav authors and never fails to impress me. This book of his, goes straight to my All Time Favorite list. If there is any author who knows how to bring out emotions and make you bawl like a baby then it is Segal. Fidelity is something that is becoming a rare virtue in todays fast pacing world.
May be in the next century Infidelity might be in fashion. Who knows! But this cannot be generalized. Nonetheless a strong marriage needs strong commitments from both partners. The Erich Segal is one of my fav authors and never fails to impress me. The vows taken if handled lightly can bring about catastrophes unimaginable.
That is what forms the crux of this novel. Sheila Beckwith has a perfect family , a loving husband Bob , two beautiful daughters Jessica and Paula , a job she loves , what more can one ask for? Now, Jean Claude is an orphan and the responsibility falls on Bob, to take care of him.
Sheila reluctantly agrees to let him stay with her family and thus begins ,the couples new journey towards accepting one another for being not so perfect , a journey of accepting a new member in to their fold ,knowing very well that he is the image of all that is threatening to break their marriage and family apart. Characters are kept very real. The interactions among the children are endearing and certain moments in the book make us reflect on human weakness , those that are almost always avoidable but are committed nonetheless and regretted all life.
A story of love,a story of forgiveness. Totally recommended , though I needed a box of tissues for all the crying I did.
