This is a good book but I can't really explain the lesson. That's kind of hard. This book is about a woman named March that encounters with her old lover Hollis. A demanding, easy jealous man, that gets everything that he wants. Meaning women. On their encounter they fall in love again and get to know eachother again. They get involved in what they used to do when they were younger. Tearing March & her family apart and taking a really long time to teach March a lesson of what she couldn't see. I won't be too detailed for those of you who didn't read it yet. ENJOY !
“Marriage is, after all, a leap of confidence: We will be together, now and in the future. We are one, from this day forth. The judge is thinking about such matters tonight as well, as he sits in his kitchen with a single light turned on. Marriage is many things to many people: a contract of convenience, a plight of truest love, an agreement made with a friend, or even with an enemy, or, oftentimes, with a stranger you're convinced that you know. Can you love two people? The judge has mulled over this possibility for more than 30 years, and still has no answer. The answer of course is based on one's interpretation of the nature of love, and the judge considers himself to be too old and tired to expect any clarification at this point.”
