First let me say that I tried really hard to like this book. The more I read though the harder it became. Not because the book is not well written, because it is superbly written. Ms. Winkes does a fantastic job of getting her point across as far as educating those who may not be familiar with the legal aspects of being in a GLBT relationship, and what can happen if a person chooses to be in such a relationship. The kinds of experiences the couple in such a relationship can experience at the hands of others who do not understand, I mean. From that perspective I could easily give this book a 4 cup rating. Ms. Winkes did a great job on that. However, I had a really hard time with a couple of things in the story, the first being the infidelity, and how it came about. Now just to be clear I would have had a problem with that regardless who was being unfaithful to who and with who. I also felt that the way Rebecca goes from being happy housewife and mother to questioning her sexuality, and falling in love with the woman who moves in across the street was a little too contrived for my taste. Her transformation just did not ring true for me. Also, some of the characters just did not seem real to me as well, such as David her husband for example. I had a hard time understanding his personality or feeling his emotions at least until it became clear that Rebecca was leaving him and why. In some ways he seemed like an after thought to the story. These things unfortunately brought the rating down a bit. If you enjoy a lot of drama with your romance, and reading about small town life then you might enjoy this book.
